Holiday Worship Service
The Knotty Pine Ministers Association informs the GAZETTE that all the churches in town have agreed to gather at Knotty Pine Church Thanksgiving morning at 10:00 am for a joint Thanks Worship Service. The service will feature a mass choir, congregational hymn singing, and a Thanksgiving message from KPC pastor Dr. Walter Singleton titled "God's Bounty in Jesus." Weather permitting, the congregation is invited to walk with the mass choir one block to the town square for more singing. The morning's activities will conclude with the ringing of bells all across town beginning with all church bells. Anyone with a hand bell, cow bell, or any other kind of bell is invited to join the church bells.
