Church History

In 1997 a small group of Presbyterians had the vision for a new church on the North end of St. Simons Island. There was a lot of growth projected in that area and it was a wonderful opportunity to spread the good news of the Gospel. The founding pastor was The Rev. Dr. Ron Watson. Having the support of several larger Presbyterian churches, the Savannah Presbytery district, and even the Synod and General Assembly, the new little church began.

At first we met in a “pink” restaurant. As we grew we graduated to meeting in an elementary school cafeteria. Eventually, our congregation was officially charter, land was donated and construction for a sanctuary was underway. The first service in our new building was held in August 2002. Soon afterwards, the formation of our choir greatly enhanced worship services.

In 2008, a new fellowship hall, kitchen and classrooms were completed.

Dr. Watson served until April 9, 2009. He was followed by The Rev. Andy Chambers beginning May 2, 2010.

In 2014, with great success we held a “Burn the Mortgage” campaign and our buildings are now debt free. An outdoor, nature classroom was added with the support of a Go Green Grant from The MK Pentecost Ecology Fund of Savannah Presbytery.

The Rev. Andy Chambers completed his service here in 2014 and was followed by The Rev. Kathi Parchem who served from January 1, 2015 until November, 2016.  Pastor Danny Grace served as our minister with his wife, Pam, until December 2019.

Presently, The Rev. Don Dilley and his wife, Debbie, are serving our church.  Elder John Wilson is the associate.
