Flooded classrooms at the College Hills Church of Christ.

Double whammy: Freeze causes flooding in Tennessee church building, previously damaged by lightning

The Lebanon Democrat & Wilson County News in Tennessee reports:

Barely six months after lightning struck College Hills Church of Christ and sparked a fire in the building’s roof, the church again sustained significant damage Tuesday – this time from burst pipes.

“The pipes froze sometime Monday,” said John Grant, an administrator at College Hills Church of Christ. “When the Tuesday afternoon sun warmed the roof, the pipes thawed and then the water started spraying.”
