Colquitt County- Rain showers dampened plans of worship for a new church Sunday. Carpenters for Christ have been working to construct a new sanctuary this week for Temple Baptist Church in Moultrie.

The congregation had planned to hold their first worship service inside the new building Sunday morning, but Mother Nature had other plans.

"We were supposed to begin setting tresses yesterday morning, early yesterday morning, and have the roof on it, have it dried in so we could have services in it today. But Arlene, bless her heart, she just sort of spoiled that for us," said Senior Minister, Terry Webb.

Many of the Carpenters for Christ attended Sunday's service causing the church to set up additional space in an overflow room. The 130 men are expected to finish up the new sanctuary by Thursday.

Every year, Carpenters for Christ builds a new church the week before Father's Day to honor their heavenly Father.
