Our History

Christ Presbyterian Church is a relatively young church.  Our story began when a family from Carriage Lane Presbyterian Church in Peachtree City, GA had a desire to plant a church in the Newnan/East Coweta County area. In October of 1996 this Group began to meet, pray and plan for the new church.  Bob and Chris Orner were called to be the organizing pastor in July of 1998.  We held our first public worship service in March of 1999.  In December 2009, Bob resigned as the Lead Pastor and has received a call to minister with Global Church Advancement.

In August, 2010, Jayme and Mary Beth Sickert began commuting from their home in Suwanee, GA, to Newnan to serve as our Interim Pastor.  After several months in this capacity, the Session and Congregation determined that he should become the next Pastor, and was issued an unanimous call in December, 2010.  They continued to commute while trying to sell their home in Suwanee, but decided to move to Newnan in August, 2011 when the Lord provided a home for them on Smokey Rd.
