About 25 animals gathered at Mulberry Street United Methodist Church Saturday morning for a blessing of the animals ceremony. Each animal received an individual blessing from associate pastor Ben Gosden or assistant pastor Bill Culpepper. "Our pets can't come to church, but they are a part of our family," Gosden said.
