(Formerly Westwood Methodist Episcopal Church)

Founded in 1873 at Westwood Farm, home of Julius H. Pyles. The cornerstone was laid on October 30, 1879 and the church constructed by the congregation. Enoch Pratt, Baltimore City philanthropist, attended the dedication. The pupit was handmade from a cherry tree taken from the property. Early ministers traveled from Bladensburg on horseback.
The Sunday School building was added in 1945.
