WATER VALLEY – The venue for the Community Thanksgiving Service scheduled Wednesday has been moved from the Water Valley First Presbyterian Church to Springdale Family Worship Center.
The change follows the tragic death of Andrew Spraberry, son of Rev. Harold and Carolyn Spra-berry. Andrew was killed in a hit-and-run automobile accident in Lafayette County Friday. He was 24.
Rev. Spraberry serves as pastor of the Presbyterian Church, where the Thanks-giving service was initially scheduled. The service time remains the same, at 7 p.m. Wednesday night.
Allen McGraw, pastor of Water Valley First United Methodist Church, will be the speaker, and Rev. Roger Howell, pastor of Adonai Church, will lead the singing.
About The Accident
Andrew Spraberry had completed a four year stint in the U.S. Marine Corps, and was attending Tennessee Tech at the time of his death.
The accident remains under investigation, according to Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Joey Miller.
Troopers with the MHP along with others from the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, Lafayette County Sheriff’s Depart-ment are searching for the driver of a 2004 Taurus that hit Spraberry’s Toyota Corolla from behind as both were northbound on Hwy. 7, just north of Abbeville.
