  • Then and Now

    This year marks the 125th anniversary year of Campbellsville Christian Church.

    The church traces its roots to the old Mt. Gilead Christian Church that was organized in 1820 in Green County. The first Christian church meetings in Campbellsville began in October 1839. The church building was located in what is presently Brookside Cemetery. Tradition has it that this building was used for a hospital during the Civil War.

    The church disbanded during this period and did not re-organize until 1884, beginning 125 years of continuing ministry in the community.
