Pastor builds church, unaware of building codes, church falls apart

Had things gone as planned, up to 500 people would have been crowding into the Cedar Grove Methodist Church near Thorsby today celebrating a job well done in the do-it-yourself construction of their new house of worship.

Instead, an 80-foot span of the new church’s roof sits in a heap in the sanctuary floor right where those hundreds would have congregated.

Carroll, himself a homebuilder, said he was not aware of any requirements and remains unconvinced a government body should have a say in how a church is built.

“If the state and the church are separate, I don’t understand why they think they’ve got jurisdiction,” he said.
