History of Greenwich Presbyterian Church
In the fall of 2002 the congregation of Greenwich celebrated the bicentennial of the first prayer meetings in the home of Aminta E. Moxley. From this humble beginning grew the congregation that was to become Greenwich Presbyterian Church. These sporadic meetings in Mrs. Moxley's home moved into a log church, then a larger log church. In the early days Mrs. Moxley would ask traveling preachers to stay over until the Sabbath to preach for them. Thomas Bloomer Balch was called to be the first pastor of Greenwich in 1833. The present edifice was constructed in 1858 through the efforts of Mrs. Moxley's daughter, Lucinda Irland, and her husband Charles Green. After more than half a century, Mrs. Moxley lived to see the dedication of the new church and then passed away on the last day of that year. Her's was to become the first grave in the new church's cemetery that now surrounds the church.
