The parents say a controversial Wells church is controlling their daughter's life. More than 150 people attended the meeting, including a spokesperson of the Church of Wells.
Catherine Grove's parents claim their 26-year-old daughter joined the church in early July.
They say when grove joined, she temporarily cut communications with her parents and they became worried.
The people of Wells, who attended the meeting, wanted to know why church leaders won't allow Catherine to see her parents. Those with the church say Catherine can do whatever she wants, but those who join the church sometimes withdraw from their families on their own.
Most of the people in the room say they welcome different religions, but they feel the church's unorthodox practices are too extreme.
"Christians believe in children obeying their parents, that's one of the ten commandments, honor thy father and mother," one Wells resident told CBS 19.
"It seems like they've come in here and they've tried to take over our town and tell us we're all going to hell. You can't come up to somebody and tell them they're going to hell. I've been told that. One of them stopped me and told me at the post office that I was going to hell," said another Wells resident.
Ministers from various churches from within Wells say they (Wells church community) stand for the gospel truth of Jesus Christ.
They don't agree with the Church of Wells, but they don't judge them. They believe that the community should show love to them and hopefully the church will turn around its practices.
We also spoke with the mother of one of the families who belong to the Church of Wells.
She owns the house the church members are currently living in, but they're paying her back.
She doesn't necessarily support their methods, but she says her family members are happy to be there. She supports them and thinks the community should, too.
No action was taken at Thursday night's meeting. It was just meant to allow community members to voice their concerns and hopefully understand the church better.
Despite her parents protests, Catherine is remaining with the church.
