LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY

Dear Friends,

If life is an adventure, and I think it is, then Christ Church Sanford is an adventure of the greatest kind. Some people dream of building sky scrapers or bridges, while others dream of building empires and armies. Many in our culture don’t dream at all, they simply move through life accumulating enough wealth and toys to keep their aching souls at bay until they lose their desire to dream about anything bigger than their next new car.

We are dreaming of a new church in Sanford, North Carolina. Not because there aren’t any churches here, but because the population is growing in Sanford and Lee County, and we believe the best way to reach out to those new singles and families is through raising up new churches. We are dreaming of a new church that will partner with existing churches and ministries while responding to the growing and unmet needs and interests of this community.

So, we are dreaming! We are dreaming of gathering people who are discovering more and more about a personal relationship with Jesus. As we learn more about Jesus as individuals and families, we want to gather together to savor and cultivate our faith in Jesus. As Jesus fills us up and encourages us, we then want to deliver the good news of the gospel of Jesus to our family, friends, neighbors and world. We agree with John Julien who said, “The absence of God is for man worse than all other hardships put together.”

One of the catch phrases that you will see on signs as you enter Sanford, North Carolina is the phrase “Well Centered.” “Well Centered” refers to the fact that Sanford lays at the geographic center of North Carolina. In a similar way, we desire to be a church who is well centered around the gospel of Jesus Christ. We would love for you to come and join us on this wonderful adventure. We do this for God’s glory and for our enjoyment!

God Bless,
Rev. Ralph Johnston
