It was a warm summer Sunday morning when the congregants where attending services at Christian Community Church in a former Presbyterian church when a fierce thunder storm came up and there was a tremendously loud noise.
The 4 point steeple on the church was struck by lightning and one of the points was destroyed.
and is in the process of being removed.
although there was significant water damage it was confined mostly to the floor areas directly below the steeple.
In a weird kind of irony a Catholic Church up the street was struck by lightning a week later and its vast pipe organ damaged.
While plenty of jokes all in fun have gone around that God was sending a message he was not happy a non denominational church moved into a former Presbyterian church .It appears the church has been hit before even thou its not the highest point in the block.
Needless to say the current non denominational church plans on installing lightning arrestors as they have found out this is not the first time the church has been hit and with the arrestors hopefully it will be the last.
