CARY, N.C. -

A Cary church will have to rebuild after a tree fell onto the building Tuesday morning.

Neighbors say they heard a crash around 6 a.m. when a tree fell through the roof of Greater Life Ministries, located at 8500 Chapel Hill Rd.

"Some of the stuff we are trying to salvage, but I have no idea," Pastor Mary Baxter said. "I don't know where I am going to take the congregation on Sunday.

"We're just devastated. It's already hard when congregants are moved anyway."

The congregation was renting the space and did not have insurance, so the church's 75 members are hoping the community will help them rebuild.

Donations can be sent to the church at this address:
