The Park Meadows Baptist Church in Logan County had 19 special guests Sunday. The Dugger family from TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" was featured at the church's annual open house.
The family played music and sang scripture to about 500 guests at Sunday morning's service. The parents also spoke to attendees. The Assistant Pastor says the family reflects the values of the church.
"It gives a testimony for us," said Assistant Pastor S.M. Davis. "It's about what our church is about. It's about reaching people for Christ and these people already love Christ. It's also about families. We love families."
The Assistant Pastor is friends with the family. He said he's known them for years. Next year the church plans to host another large family.
