Dr. Oliver Skerrett

After a year and half of hard work, our search committee presented a candidate for our Pastor’s position at Shaws Creek Baptist Church. After hearing Brother Skerrett on October 18th, 2020, members voted and selected Dr. Oliver “Butch” Skerrett as our new Pastor. His official first Sunday will be November 1st. We look forward to serving the Lord under Dr. Skerrett’s leadership.

Due to the circumstances with the Coronavirus, beyond our control, we will be having Sunday morning worship services in the sanctuary at 11am. Social distancing is highly encouraged. We have marked every other pew off with tape to ensure social distancing. We also have an overflow in the fellowship hall with a large TV where the sermon is live streamed. For those who prefer to listen from their car, we will be airing it over a FM transmitter on 107.1FM.


Live streams will be available approximately 10 min before scheduled service time.


Shaws Creek Baptist Church is located in the town of Laurel Park in Hendersonville, North Carolina. We are a friendly group of Christian believers who worship Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. We would love to invite you to our 11am worship service, where you can see for yourself why folks are saying Shaws Creek is "a church-home for your heart!"
