Here is the story of the beginnings of our church and how we became what we are today.

The church of Christ in Pleasanton began meeting in 1910 with less than 20 members.  The first assemblies were held under the old Oak Trees on the courthouse lawn. Visiting preachers and summer Gospel Meetings helped the church to grow, with services held where space was available - including the homes of members such as Texana Brite. Land was donated at the present site in 1924 by Mrs. M.E. Morris for the construction of the first building.  More land was bought during the 1940's, 50's, 60's and 1999.  The present auditorium building was constructed in 1965.  The office annex was renovated in 1986 and a new classroom wing was built in 1987. In 2008 the Children's Biblical Studies Center was built for grades cradle roll through 4th. This new wing adjoins the auditorium. In the summer of 2015 construction began on the new Fellowship Hall with a projected completion date of January 2016.
 
From the small number of Christians who began meeting under Oak trees, the Pleasanton congregation has grown to approximately 250+ members.  The present work is conducted under the leadership of seven elders, with the work program headed by six deacons.

 In October of 2010 we gathered to celebrate and dedicate a Historical Marker for the Pleasanton Church of Christ, designating one hundred years of saving souls in the Pleasanton area, contributing much to the history of Pleasanton and the State of Texas. Brother John Henshaw, upon arriving in Atascosa County, wrote a letter to The Gospel Advocate, an early church paper, indicating what he had found: “We have a beautiful country and a healthy one and think that a minister of the Gospel would do well here”. Henshaw was referring to the Verdi area and all of Atascosa County.

Missionary efforts are supported here in the States, in India, New Zealand, Cambodia, Haiti, Nicaragua (Mision Para Cristo), and Romania (EEM). Other outreach efforts include Sunny Glen Children's Home, Central Texas Children's Home, and Medina/Boles Children's Home (Arms of Hope), John Clayton, Glynn Langston, Mark Forster, Jail Ministry, World Bible School, and more.
