There are several church buildings of note in Terry.  The First Baptist Church (formerly the Terry Baptist Church) is the largest church in town.  The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is located near where the town’s water tower once stood and served as a hospital during the Civil War.  A grave lies behind the church that belongs to a 6 year old girl named Clara Ayer. Young Clara was traveling with her family from Columbus, GA, and died as a result of the yellow fever epidemic that tragically struck many during the summer of 1865. Her grave is lovingly tended by members of the present congregation.

Terry Grove Missionary Baptist Church was founded in 1865 and is the oldest African American Church in the Terry area.  All of the other African American churches of Terry have descended from the Terry Grove Church.  Terry Grove Missionary Baptist Church is a candidate for the National Register of Historic Places.  

Little Bethel Christian Methodist Episcopal Church is an African American Church founded in 1891 and remains at its original location on Brown Street.  Little Bethel Church has long been viewed as having a progressive leadership and was a local focal point for grass roots efforts during the Civil Rights Movement.

Two former churches which served the town for many years but are now closed are the Terry United Methodist Church and the Terry Sanctified Church.
