The first service took place in 1890 in a small room over a store known as "Calvert's Hall" at the intersection of the B&O Railroad and Calvert Road. The church grew from a small core of dedicated Christians and was directly related to serving the students of the Maryland Agricultural College, now the University of Maryland at College Park.

In 1894, Mr. John Oliver Johnson, a real estate developer in Washington, bought 125 acres of land in 1889 and named the subdivision College Park. In 1894 a small congregation began to use a brick building of his that had been built for a tabcco barn, then used as a stable, and for a few years by a Presbyterian congregation as their "church." St. Andrew's in Washington, D.C. gave its old pews and so the chapel was named St. Andrew's.

In June of 1896 the first wedding took place. John Oliver Johnson's daughter, Emily, was married to W.T.L. Taliaferro. In the same year Biship Satterlee, the first bishop of the Diocese of Washington, performed St. Andrew's first confirmation service.
