Church Sustains Roof Damage

He howling winds and rain caused some damage at a Tyler church.  Half of the roof is gone from the Progressive Baptist Church in north Tyler. Thankfully, only half of the church was damaged. The fellowship hall, chapel area and Sunday classrooms were covered with building tiles, insulation and water.  

"It's going to take a lot of time and money and patience.  When you first see it especially outside it looks pretty bad but fortunately it looks worse than it is and we are thankful for that," says Pastor James Brice Sr. of Progressive Baptist Church.

Pastor Brice says the sanctuary was not damaged and they will be having church services on Sunday.
