Many rural churches are losing members. Plantersville Baptist is growing and expanding its ministry in our community, which has become incorporated and will grow with the change of freeways and commerce that will soon impact our area. You are encouraged to come and grow with us.
We are blessed to have Bro.Jack Redfearn as our Pastor. He and Lisa are such a welcomed addition to our church family.
