Weather causes church roof to collapse in Columbiaville

LAPEER COUNTY (WJRT) -

(02/22/14) - Volunteers at the United Methodist Church in Columbiaville spent Saturday afternoon repairing the roof. Saturday morning, the roof began to leak and collapsed into the building.

Esther Irish, Pastor of Columbiaville United Methodist Church, said it took them by surprise.

"Things were fine, we made pasty's Thursday morning, we left, came back Thursday evening and the ceiling had caved in. All of the rain had built up ice on our roof and it just caved in the ceiling."

The damage forced the church to cancel their monthly community dinner Saturday night. Several other events were canceled for the rest of the week.

Here is a link to the church's Facebook page for an updated list of canceled events.
