LAMESA, TX (KWES) - A church in Lamesa suffered some water damage.

However, the rain didn't stop Friendship Baptist Church from church services.

Located about 11 miles southwest of Lamesa, Saturday night's rain showers left about four to five inches of water sitting in the parking lot.

Pastor Dennis Adams said the water seeped through the doors and into the carpet.

Vacation Bible School was scheduled for this week and although they were not able to meet Monday night, Friendship Baptist was back up and running by Tuesday.

Pastor Adams said they have been blown away by how people responded and it's from all denominations.

He said when the church hurts, everyone jumps in to help.

On Monday, members came out to help get the church in working order.

He said each night the church has seen an increase in attendance.

Pastor Adams added they are working to completely dry out the building and eventually flooring will have to be replaced, where the rain ruined the carpet.
