Inscription.  

Early settlers to Kerrville met for worship services in the Union church built in 1885. In 1888, seven charter members of the Presbyterian congregation received funds to build their own church. Through the years the congregation has grown along with the community, building new facilities to accommodate its membership and activities. Innovative outreach programs included radio broadcasts and services at ranching communities west of Kerrville. The congregation continues to serve the community with various activities including educational and outreach ministries.
