Welcome to Plathville brings us the large family of Kim and Barry Plath. They live on a farm near Cairo, Georgia. There, they raise their nine children under strict religious rules. Described as fundamentalist-styled parents, fans want to know what church they belong to. And, it looks like they may be Baptists but with a few of their own additions as to how they live their lives.
Welcome To Plathville Family Band tours often plays at Baptist churches
The new TLC show focuses on how the eldest son Ethan married Olivia Marie Meggs. Olivia, although from a conservative religious background, clashes with her mother-in-law. She’s more emancipated and allows her self to eat sugar, drink soda and even alcohol on occasion. TV Shows Ace reported that Olivia feels very hurt that Kim hates on her as she sees her as a bad influence on their very sheltered kids.
Facebook shows Olivia is a wedding and lifestyle photographer. The couple married at Silver Rain Farm, Tired Creek Road in Whigham, Georgia, according to Zola.com.There’s no indication which religion they married under, but good signs indicate the Plath family might be Baptists. For some years now, Baptist churches advertised that the Plath Family Band scheduled events to sing and play for them. That could be a good sign that the Welcome to Plathville family actually goes to a Baptist church.
Baptist churches schedule Plath Family Band
A casual search on Google reveals that lots more than one Baptist church venue hosted the Plath band. In August 2017, “The Plath family treated members and guests of First Baptist Church to their renditions of traditional gospel and bluegrass music.” Plus, the Plath Family Website shows they scheduled to perform at the Peach Tree Baptist Church in Carrollton, Georgia, in May this year. They also performed at Greenwood Baptist Church in 2016. The Welcome To Plathville family also shows a photo of them at a Baptist church.
Not all Baptists are as extreme with their restrictions as Kim Plath. But, it’s interesting to note the Duggars of 19 Kids and Counting also call themselves Baptists. In their case, Bustle reminds us that the Duggars are devout independent Baptists. While the Baptist church seems down on alcohol a lot, restricting kids from television and technology seems a bit over the top. The Duggars claim their kids don’t watch television. But, Jill Duggar lets the kids watch stuff online. But, allegedly, in Kim Plath’s family, their kids are locked away from these sort of influences.
What do you think about the fact that the Plath family might be Baptists, but with a very strict spin on it? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
