SALISBURY - In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, Friendship Baptist Church of Salisbury is planning a special event for Sunday.
The congregation at Friendship Baptist Church I-85 & Peach Orchard exit will celebrate the printing of the KJV with a special speaker and program.
Dr. Greg Pierce will be the featured speaker, and there will be special music by Straight & Narrow, along with an old fashioned dinner on the grounds.
The congregation will come dressed old fashion including some horse and buggies.
The pastor describes the event as "an auspicious occasion."
The services will begin at 11am.
The King James, or, Authorized Version, is a translation of the Bible by the Church of England, at the command of King James. The project was started in 1604 and completed in 1611.
