The 1859 meeting of the Kings Mountain Baptist Association took place at the Pleasant Hill Meeting House (present day: Pleasant Hill Baptist Church) in Grover, NC. The introductory sermon was delivered by Elder George W. Rollins. The circular letter was authored by Elder Joseph Suttle on "Prayer." The association unanimously adopted the motion in the form of a report from the Committee of Temperance that any church which holds a member who buys, sells, or consumes alcohol should be withdrawn from the association.
