New Church Bell

Earlier this year, Caney Baptist Church’s historic bell was stolen.Pastor Lawrence Baldridge says the original bell was not found, but a new bell is in its place after Chief Deputy Robby Slone of the Knott County Sheriff’s Office donated a bell.”It was an overwhelming feeling that I can’t explain, and I couldn’t shake,” said Slone.Slone said he drives by the church daily on his way to work, and after much thought and more than one month of feeling like he should help, he decided to get the ball rolling. He says I’m honored that they accepted it, and it’s hanging in the place of the other one.
