The severe thunderstorm Wednesday evening did extensive damage to an area church.

Mansfield First Assembly at 2727 Lexington Avenue had its 40 foot tall steeple blown off the roof by the strong winds.

Pastor Don Wilson got a frantic phone call to come to the church quickly. 

He found the steeple, bent and broken beside the building, with a large hole in the roof, and water damage on the main floor.  The sanctuary was not damaged.  

Pastor Wilson estimates the damage at $30,000 at the least.

But he says the church has insurance which should cover the cost.

While services are canceled for this Sunday, he hopes to have repairs completed well enough to hold services on Sunday the 21st.
