The Beginning...

Windwood Presbyterian Church has grown from the inspiration of 24 individuals in April of 1962, through its organization by the Brazos Presbytery with 108 charter members in March of 1964, to its present large and diverse family of faith. Its diversity stems from the fact that there are programs for people from infancy to nonagenarians, with a great variety of interests, whose commonality is the love of God through Jesus Christ. After being situated on the banks of Cypress Creek at the intersection of Grant Road and Lakewood Forest Drive for many years, in the spring of 2002, the church moved to the new location at 10555 Spring Cypress Road.

God has blessed us with some beautiful property on the corner of Huffsmith-Kohrville and Spring Cypress. We have some beautifully wooded areas where the wind blows through the trees and we are reminded of God’s provision for us, but even more, we feel the wind of His Spirit blowing into and through our lives. He is the wind in the woods who brings life to our relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son!

The church has a vision inspired by Christ's Great Commission as stated in the Gospel of Matthew:
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

Matthew 28:18-20 By building on the foundation of our Statement of Faith, our statement of the Purposes of the Church, and our commitment to growing as a healthy congregation by learning to balance those purposes, we have committed ourselves to move beyond "saying the right things" to "doing the right things."

Christian Education and Small Groups are available to persons of every age and interest. The curricula is chosen to reflect the core values of the church and implement Windwood's Statement of Faith. The style of worship includes both traditional and contemporary elements and there is a secure nursery available for use during worship.

Join us at Windwood Church, to feel the Spirit of the Lord blow into and through your life to bring forgiveness and healing and purpose and joy!

Windwood Presbyterian Church - Master Plan

In 1999, the Session and Congregation approved a vision to carry the Gospel to our growing community and world into the 21st century. We called it our 2020 Vision. That vision included relocating to the 57 acres on the corner of Spring Cypress and Huff-Smith Kohrville Road. It also called for a master plan for the facilities. In phase one, we completed our fellowship hall (which also serves as our worship center for now) administrative offices and adult meeting rooms, our children's ministry building, and our youth ministry center. In phase two, our plans call for building a permanent sanctuary that seats 1,500 and two additional classroom buildings. Finally, in phase three, the sanctuary will be expanded to 3,000 seats, and an additional classroom building and seminar building will complete the plan for the site. With an estimated 250,000 people moving into our area by the year 2020, we believe God has called and equipped us to meet the needs of growing His kingdom in our growing community. We invite you to join us!
