Oak Grove Baptist Church
North West Section, Camden County.

Oak Grove Church, Camden County, GAOak Grove Church and Cemetery (not to be confused with Oak Grove Cemetery in St. Marys) are located in northwest Camden County just west of Hwy. 259 and just south of the Brantley/Camden County line.  While the first deed was made in 1890, members of this church had met in this area for years before.

The church suffered through years of rising and falling membership.  Lacking electricity or running water, many newcomers to the county ignore this old, one-room church.  Originally named the Satilla River Baptist Church, members voted to change it to Oak Grove in 1896.  The church is used only once a year:  on the fourth Sunday in May when members hold a homecoming.

Many of the early members included Harrells, Buies, Drurys, Flemings, Southwells, Beasleys, and Sweats.Oak Grove Church, Camden County, GA  A full listing of the burials in Oak Grove can be found in the Online Burials Section.
