The Town Creek Church of Christ is located at the intersection of Hwy 20 and Church Street in Town Creek. While the Church of Christ congregation did not formally organize until 1893, records indicate that members of the Town Creek community had gathered together for worship beginning in the 1860s. In the 1880s, Church of Christ minister T.B. Larimore of Florence traveled to Town Creek to baptize residents. The connection to Larimore, who had founded the Mars Hill Academy, may have influenced the community’s decision to follow the Church of Christ faith. J. H. Lemay donated the lot on which the congregation constructed the church. J. R. Armstrong and W. V. Prueitt ordered the lumber through their firm, Porter and Foster. Armstrong rode horseback to Landersville, Alabama to borrow enough money to pay the bill for the church.

Today the Town Creek Church of Christ is located at 324 Church Street.
