Campton Baptist Church
A bit about us



DSCF9380

Centrally located at the foot of the White Mountains and just north of the Lakes Region and Plymouth, Campton Baptist Church is situated in the heart of picturesque Campton, New Hampshire. Whether you descend from generations of Campton locals, you are new to the area, or you are visiting for a weekend, we welcome you to join us as we worship our Risen King! Our Sunday morning services are followed by a time of fellowship in our vestry. You will find a map and directions on our contact page. We are handicapped accessible.


Come, worship with us Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.



Our Pastor: Rev. Michael Pelletier

Reverend Michael Pelletier has been the pastor of Campton Baptist Church since November 13, 2016.
Pastor Mike is a semi-retired business person for whom a career in ministry came later in life. For close to ten years he served as a volunteer who counseled and ministered to men in the jails and prison system of NH. He later became a church pastor serving as an interim in Richford, VT and Springfield, VT and has been providing pulpit supply to churches in the VT/NH region. His vision as a pastor is that a church must be relevant in the community from which it draws its support if it is to survive. To do this we must become committed to our community and we must strive to have an active and effective involvement. We cannot help a world that is sleeping in the dark if we, ourselves, are asleep in the light.

Pastor Mike enjoys the great outdoors as well as tinkering with old ham radios.

About Marie... Originally from Farmington, NH, Marie is a commercial lender at Lake Sunapee Bank where she has been employed for more than thirty years. Despite the demands of her job, she somehow finds the time to adorn our property with beautiful plants and flowers as well as grow great vegetables in our garden. And although she won't admit it, she is a very skilled quilter. Marie is also very practical. For Christmas one year she asked for a new snow shovel. Another year she asked for a chain saw. She's definitely a keeper!!!

Together, Michael and Marie have three sons; Michael and Jacob who live locally, and Daniel who lives in Colorado.

We are a member of the American Baptist Churches of Vermont and New Hampshire, a chapter of the American Baptist Churches of the United States. The church was founded in 1811 and built in 1826. The baptismal, which features the splendid work of the accomplished artist Herbert Waters, was added in 1954 and Pastor Bolster was one of the first to be baptized there when his father was the pastor of Campton Baptist Church!
