Inscription. Chartered in 1890, the First Christian Church of Midland was organized by sixteen members who met in private homes until 1892. A tradition of service to the church and community began when charter member S. E. Townsend pledged $300 toward the first of two downtown church buildings. The church grew steadily; by 1950 the congregation had erected a large building on the northwestern edge of Midland, making additions as needed. In 1990, the congregation celebrated its 100th anniversary and continues to serve the community with a variety of outreach programs and religious activities.
 
Erected 1997 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 12153.)
