Pastor Jamie Coots' father, Greg, is the most important member of the family's church. He is bishop and spiritual guide. When Greg is bitten by a copperhead during services, the whole church family is extremely concerned, especially since he refuses to seek medical attention and he has a heart condition. Will Greg be able to make it through with only his prayers and faith? Not discouraged by the incident, congregants Big Cody and Alex go out looking for snakes.
