Description: 

The "Church in Frenchman's Bend" is mentioned twice in the story. The first time, as the one that Clarence Snopes belongs to, it is explicitly identified as "Baptist" (132). When "the church" is mentioned again, it is as the one Grier and Bookright "shingled" (137), a story Faulkner told in "Shingles for the Lord" (1943). Frenchman's Bend is certainly big enough, and religious enough, to support a Methodist Church as well as a Baptist one, but the text doesn't give us any real reason to doubt that Snopes, Grier and Bookright all belong to the same Baptist congregation.
