INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -
Worshipers at Full Gospel Assembly are back in the pews, a week after a storm ripped the roof right off.
Straight-line winds ripped the roof and steeple off the church just minutes after evening services let out.
Part of the roof landed on one of the church vans, totaling it. The church does have insurance, which will pay for most of the repairs.
Inside the church, one might not notice anything was wrong, but outside, people can't help but notice.
"When you see that kind of devastation laying in the streets and parking lot, you think you're totally done. Once you get the opportunity to calm down and look at things a little closer, you realize things are replaceable and repairable," pastor Doyle Ankrom said.
As Ankrom lead his flock Sunday, he was thankful everyone was still here too lead.
Dave Cunningham was in the church just minutes before the straight-line winds took the roof off about 7:30 p.m. last Sunday.
"We would have been going to the hospital. It shoved 2x6s into the asphalt. They were standing up. It could have killed somebody," Cunningham said.
Ankrom's wife, Sharin, said the power of the wind was nothing compared the compassion she has felt since.
"We had four churches that night to offer support," Sharin Ankrom said.
Members gave thanks Sunday that they still have a place to worship.
"We weren't really sure what was going to happen. We were going to have service even if it meant having it outside," Connie Cunningham said. "I'm just glad to be back to a regular, back th way it should be."
The church said it is going to cost about a $125,000 to replace the roof, and they are not going to replace the steeple, choosing to go with a simple cross instead.
