Biggs told the station that she and the present minister of six years, Rev. Tim Mattox, have since quite a while ago competed over his proclaiming style,

“At a certain point, he had a group in here and they were hollering and dropping out amidst the floor,” Biggs told the station. “We don’t do that in the Baptist Church.”

Biggs said strains reached a crucial stage in right on time August when Mattox sent her a letter expressing she could no more go to chapel there “for any reason at all,” the station reported.

“This letter is to illuminate you that as indicated by the By-Laws of the Union Grove Baptist Church, and by vote of the dynamic individuals, any enrollment or affiliations that you have had with this congregation are currently formally renounced,” read the letter, dated Aug. 2.

On Sunday, police was called to the little, white church in Elberton, Ga., after Biggs chose to go to benefit in any case, as per the station. Police said there was nothing they could do in light of the fact that the make a difference is a common debate in the middle of Biggs and the congregation.
