Church that lost steeple holds first service

The steeple was torn off entirely. The steeple was torn off entirely.

Church members in Rogersville held services Sunday just days after their place of worship sustained major damage in last week's storms.

Wind tore the steeple off the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church on Highway 72 in Rogersville.

Church officials say they are just glad no one was hurt and the damage to their building is not going to stop them from having service.

"It's even more important to be here today and to offer our community hope and faith, and most of all love because it never fails. It's because of our belief in each other, our family ties with the church, and Christ, that we are just moving on," said Suzanne Christopher, Church Elder.

The storms ripped the steeple off the church, causing a huge hole in the roof of the sanctuary.

The steeple had been refurbished and repaired just three years ago.
