Clyattville - When it rains, it pours in the Clyattville United Methodist Church.
"You can't secure it all, you can't cover it all so it won't get wet. We never know where it will start leaking next," says Pastor Mollie Danner.
Danner is doing her best to clean up the mess left by last week's severe weather. High winds knocked a tree onto her house and debris tore holes in the roof of the church.
Tuesday's rain only makes it worse.
It didn't rain long before water began to pour through the ceiling tiles of the church's damaged roof. Danner is praying it doesn't get any worse.
"Hopefully rain is all we get without the wind and as we find these leaks we are hearing now, we'll put something under them."
With all the recent rain, it's the wind that poses the biggest threat.
"We are very concerned right now with our trees not holding and it won't take much wind to put them over because of that saturation. If the ground weren't so wet, they'd be able to handle more wind. It's not going to take much to bring them down this time," says Paige Dukes of the Lowndes County Commission.
But until all repairs are done, Danner and congregation will continue praying for drier weather.
Danner says they are working with insurance adjusters and contractors now. Their goal is to have the church repaired by Easter.
