The 1866 meeting of the Kings Mountain Baptist Association took place at High Shoal Church (present day: High Shoals Baptist Church) in Mooresboro, located in neighboring Rutherford County, NC. The introductory sermon was delivered by Elder L. H. McSwain and the circular letter was authored by Elder Dove Pannell. A motion was made to create a delegation to approach the Constitutional Kings Mountain Baptist Association, established as a result of the rift caused by the 1859 temperance bylaws, to bring about a re-union of the two associations. The concern over the lack of Sabbath Schools at associational churches was readdressed. Reports from individual committees are not included in the minute book.
