100-year-old church to be torn down

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -- A 100-year old church that was damaged during summer flooding in Cedar Rapids is set to be torn down.

The Trinity United Methodist Church has housed a congregation for more than 100 years. In June, 5 feet of water entered the church sanctuary when the Cedar River flooded, doing significant damage to the building.

 The Rev. Bob Voels says the congregation has decided repairs will be too costly and the building should be demolished.
