OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1876, Ashburn Presbyerian Church was originally called the Farmwell Presbyterian Church after the former name of the Village of Ashburn. A sanctuary was erected in 1878 on 10.3 acres of land just south of the community.

Throughout most of our history, we were a small rural church that struggled to support a full-time pastor and whose membership did not reach 100 until 1989. Since then, our congregation has experienced dramatic growth and our facilities have expanded through multiple building projects. In 1967 an education wing was added to the sanctuary which was later used as staff offices. By the early 90's it became apparent that the small sanctuary could no longer hold the growing membership, and in 1992 Pickell Hall was constructed. It served the dual purpose of worship center and fellowship hall until the new sanctuary was constructed in 2002. The most recent building project to expand Pickell Hall was completed in 2007.

OUR STRATEGIC PLAN

The APC Strategic Plan affirms, “Ashburn Presbyterian Church is a work of the Holy Spirt. For almost 150 years this congregation has stood as a testimony to God’s faithfulness serving the Savior who alone is head of the church and the cornerstone of our faith.” Exciting opportunities are ahead as we follow Christ and welcome others to Christian life and community.    


We invite you to download and review the plan. The APC Strategic Plan affirms the call of Christ to do this together.  As you read the pages that follow, ask God to show how you can join with us in this work to build a strong and thriving APC in 2017 and beyond.


Now to God who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. 

Ephesians 3:20–21
