Church

Camden County Missouri contained many churches over the years. Many small local churches were created and disbanded over the years. Known churches currently include.

Missionary Baptist Churches in Mack's Creek

The first known  congregation was originally organized in September 1873 and held meetings in private homes and in the Mack's Creek School House until August 1880. For some reason this group disbanded in 1880. Founding members included Ben Allison, Martha Allison, Alfred Catron, Sarah Catron, Lucinda Catron, George Catron, George Heffner,  and Elders Joe Miller, L.J. Tatum, and W.W. Palmer.

The same month this congregation disbanded, another Missionary Baptist Church was formed in Mack's Creek. This church continued until 1886. Known members were Elders J.M. Russell, J.M. Stincipher, and William West, as well as members J.E. Fowler and A.W. Kain.

The present  Mack's Creek Missionary Baptist Church was organized on January 24, 1910.

There were eight different Baptist meetings in and around Macks Creek.
