In June of 1865, a group of pioneer residents of the San Ramon Valley organized the Contra Costa Presbyterian Church. Services were held regularly in the Green Valley Schoolhouse. It was not until July 16, 1875, that articles of incorporation were filed and the name of the church changed to the Danville Presbyterian Church. In October of that year, the cornerstone of the well-remembered and beloved Church of the Pioneers was laid.

This New England chapel, with its soaring white spire and mellow bell, was a familiar landmark of the San Ramon Valley for 50 years. Many of the prominent early settlers of the valley worked in its service, and today the third generation of the settlers continue to serve the church. In May of 1932, an early morning fire completely destroyed the historical landmark. In the following year, the cornerstone for a succeeding structure was laid, and the new church was dedicated. 

With rapid growth of the Valley, there was an apparent need for larger facilities of the Church and Sunday School. In 1950, after more than seventy-five years, the site of the church was removed from it's Front Street location, and reestablished in the form of our present building on El Pintado Road. The facility was expanded in 1952, and again in 1956. Due to the continuing growth in membership, the current Sanctuary was built in 1979, and in 1988, the Equipping Center was completed.
