The town of Wells is planning a march to the R&R Mercantile on U.S. Hwy. 69 from the former Dairy Queen to protest the Church of Wells.
The event is planned for 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Wells residents also are circulating an online petition in hopes of getting the group investigated by officials.
According to residents, they want the church investigated as a possible human trafficking ring, the petition states.
As of Thursday afternoon, almost 300 people nationwide had signed the petition at https://petitions.
The Church of Wells settled in Wells a few years ago, and have since made headlines a handful of times while causing disturbances while “street preaching.”
