Dougherty County- The carpet in the First Baptist Church of Acree has been ripped up and the sheet rock has been removed from the lower portion of the walls in the sanctuary and youth center.

The pews were also damaged, but the church already had plans to replace then. Pastor Mark Sickling says he isn't sure how much the repairs will cost because the First Baptist Church does not have any flood insurance.

"We've had a lot of our members come and spend many hours taking days off from work, vacation time to do that on their own time, and we certainly appreciate that. We've also had members of the community come out and give their time. Members of other churches have come and given their time, so we appreciate everyone who's come out," says Sickling.

Sickling says the pews can be repaired and the church is looking for another congregation who is interested in buying them. Services and next week's vacation bible school will be held in the new fellowship hall.
