We are the historic "first" church in Sanford, founded by members of the Sanford family. For us historic does not mean we are a museum for the past, but rather that God has given to us a significant responsibility for the present and the future of our community. Our first responsibility is the worship of God through his Son, Jesus Christ empowered by the Holy Spirit. We then have a dual responsibility to deeply care for our members and our community. In these responsibilities we live into the two Great Commandments to love God and our neighbor.
Our worship is centered on the celebration of the Eucharist remembering that Christ always feeds his disciples. Our care for our members is found in our pastoral care for one another, our opportunities for education and through the fellowship we enjoy. Our care for the community is seen in our continued commitment to "Grace and Grits" a feeding ministry of which we are a founding partner and our desire to reach out in new ways to our community.
We hope that this website will give to you a taste of who we are. We are a place where everyone is welcomed. We do not all think alike, but we all are committed to God, to one another and to the mission to which God calls us. We invite you to come and join us: discover the joy of worship, feel the power of a loving God, know the satisfaction of working to change the world for Jesus Christ.
