“It’s just a little community get-together,” Henderson said. “And of course, the winner gets bragging rights for a year.”


Gayle Sanford, a congregation member, echoes Pastor Henderson’s sentiments, stating that the church created this event last year as a way to bring the congregation and the community together. 


“It’s just a day to have fun,” Sanford said. “Just great fellowship in a little country church.”


Judging by 3-4 individuals from within the congregation and the community will begin at 5 p.m.
