Potato Creek Church is a non-denominational church whose mission is to spread the gospel, teach the doctrines of the Bible, and serve the community. The pastor of Potato Creek Church, Eugene Murphy, has served God for over 40 years preaching and leading people to Christ. He was pastor at Wyebrook Baptist Church in Elverson, Penn., for 31 years and was pastor at several local churches prior to coming to Potato Creek Church.

At Wyebrook Baptist, “Pastor Gene” saw the church grow from just a few members to several hundred with an exciting AWANA program serving over 240 children, plus he managed several major building projects. Pastor Murphy preaches on the first and third Sundays of the month. Lay speakers preach on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays.

Potato Creek Church was built in 1865, and it served the community for many decades; however, the church was closed June 13, 1999 and re-opened on June 12, 2011. Over the course of the last two-and-a-half years, various renovation projects have been completed, including the painting of the exterior of the church, upgrading of the electrical system, installing a water well, septic system and bathroom, and renovating the bell tower and sanctuary. The next project is to renovate the fellowship hall, including the addition of a kitchen.

The church’s motto is “Potato Creek Church is different. Come and See.” Potato Creek Church invites the community to join them each Sunday in worship and serving the community. For more information about Potato Creek Church, contact Pastor Eugene Murphy at (336) 200-1303.
