ABILENE, Texas -

Abilene's Trinity Church of the Nazarene assessed the damage caused by a fire during Wednesday night's storms.

The church caught fire from a lightning strike shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The church's roof is being called a total loss.

One of the pastors said the damage is not going to stop them from gathering for prayer services.

A special prayer around the church will be held Sunday, May 19 after normal Sunday services.
