Poplar Springs traces its beginnings to the 1890’s when the worship services were held under a brush arbor in a grove of Poplar trees.  From those humble beginnings, a building was constructed and the church was formally organized with forty-three members in 1906.

Poplar Springs’ first full-time minister, Ralph Sproles, was hired in 1959.  He and his family served for 45 years, retiring in 2003. Don Wallace served from 2004-2016. Chuck Bower served 2017-2021. And the current lead minister is Griffin Gilstrap.

Now over the century mark, Poplar Springs Church has developed into a very active body of believers united in Christian love.  Committed staff and leadership, with a host of volunteers, enable the church to minister to the needs of her community.
