Peach Creek was established on May 27, 1849. 

Originally located on Pleasant Grove Road, the church moved shortly after the Civil War to its current location on Parks Place Road to be closer to the changing population center of the Pleasant Grove Community.

“This celebration is a time to celebrate a legacy of who we are and have always been – a church that shares the Good News of Jesus, serves others, and worships God together,” said current pastor Tracy Reed.

All are cordially invited to join the celebration of the 175th anniversary with the members of Peach Creek Baptist Church this Sunday.
