Our Heritage

Early in 1975, a small group of Seventh-day Adventists living in the Peachtree City area, started meeting on Tuesday evenings for prayer meeting.  They met in a different home each week and “paid” Elder Morton in free meals.  After meeting like this for several months, they felt that the Lord was leading them to establish His work in the Peachtree City area.

Heritage1On October 25, 1975, they met for the first time in a warehouse chapel, shared by Catholic and Lutheran churches.  The rent was $10.00 per Sabbath.  They continued to meet for prayer meeting in their homes and prayed for guidance about the possibility of building a church.

heritage3Dick and Jane Lee offered to donate two acres of land next to their home for the church to be built on.  It was agreed to take a secret ballot pledge to see if they could come up with the amount of money needed to run a church.  After the ballots were tallied, it was exactly the amount that was needed to move forward.

heritage2The Conference office was contacted and plans were made.  Sonny Cox led the building program, and the entire church family came out to work every Sunday.

heritage4On March 6, 1976, they were officially organized into the Peachtree City Seventh-day Adventist Church.

In August of 2002, the Family Life Center was finished and is now where the church holds its services.
