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 December 2010, Jayme Sickert was called as the pastor after serving in an interim capacity for several months. After years of faithful service, Jayme was honorably retired at the end of 2018.

In November 2018, Drew Archer was called by a unanimous vote of the congregation to begin serving as pastor in January 2019. Drew comes to CPC after serving as Assistant Pastor of Ponce Presbyterian Church in midtown Atlanta.

Our Building

Throughout much of our 20 years as a church, we have often felt like nomads, but the Lord has continued to sustain and bless us. We have held worship services in schools and storefronts, and even spent time holding services at 5pm at Christ the King in Sharpsburg. Then in 2012, we were given the opportunity to begin holding morning services at our current location, which was formerly Zion Lutheran Church. God soon opened the door for us to purchase the property, along with the surrounding 4 acres. We find ourselves now in the exciting position of planning and praying over how we can use our property as we start to outgrow the current building.
