MILLS RIVER -- The temperature was in the teens, with a severe wind chill, on Friday outside the church on Presbyterian Church Road. By 7 p.m., people bundled up were scurrying to the side door of the fellowship hall.
Inside, the conversation, the food and the fellowship warmed up the 40 or so people who braved the cold to participate in assembling part of the "the World's Largest Puzzle" at Mills River Presbyterian Church.
"It's a warm place in every sense of the word," said the Rev. Randall Boggs, pastor of the church.
Larry Sunday, a member of the church, donated the puzzle as a way to create community outreach for the church. He supervised the scene on Friday and held on to a timer, which records the group's progress. He watched as people move and mingle from group to group.
On the puzzle's Web site, at, a Hall of Fame showed all the groups who have completed the puzzle. Sunday said the Hall of Fame made no reference to any group in North Carolina completing the puzzle, nor any churches. Sunday predicted the puzzle will be completed some time on Monday.

Volunteers can still sign up to participate in the puzzle piecing process by calling 891-7101. Sunday hopes construction continues around the clock. The church is located at 10 Presbyterian Church Road in Mills River.
