Plum Springs Baptist Church
In 1898, Rev. C. W. Freeman began a series of meetings in a tent set up in a grove of woods in the Plum Springs Community. Fourteen souls were saved as a result of this meeting. They were baptized and banded together to organize the Plum Springs Baptist Church.
The ground for the original church was given by Mr. & Mrs. Charles Hendrick. Logs for the building were cut from the woods along the Barren River and hauled by wagon to the location by men of the community. The early church records were destroyed by fire when the church clerk’s house burned, so we are uncertain as to the exact date that Plum Springs Baptist joined the association (1898) or began work on their house of worship. However, the associational minutes show that in 1900 the Warren Association of Baptist made up an appropriation of $100 to enable Plum Springs to complete its church building.
In 1906 Plum Springs had so advanced that a mid-week prayer service was held every week during the year and Sunday School was held for nine months of the year. In 1925 the church had grow in the work of our Lord to such an extent that it went to half time preaching services. In 1950, the church went to full time preaching services and erected a new house of worship. In 1956 the church installed a new floor and pews. Other additions to the church were in 1964 new Sunday School rooms, 1969 more Sunday School rooms and a basement. The latter were dedicated in October of 1971 with and attendance of 253. In 1973, a new auditorium was begun along with a basement for fellowship and Sunday School.
The church purchased 68 acres of property on Plum Springs Road in the 1990’s and construction began on a new multi- purpose building in July 2000. The large fellowship hall is now the currently used to house the worship services. The church moved to its new location at 2080 Plum Springs Road in July 2001, with the first service on July 8, 2001. The church has had 26 pastors during its lifetime.
