 (KMOV) -- The steeple of an Edwardsville church was blown to the ground Sunday night following an area-wide wind storm.

On Tuesday, a construction crew worked to repair the damaged steeple of the LeClaire Christian Church.

The church’s lead pastor was surprised to see what the weather could do to the steeple but said the church isn’t asking for help to fix it.

"Edwardsville is kind of an affluent town this is just a piece of our building so certainly our church is more concerned about people than a steeple,” said Shane Taylor, Pastor at LeClaire Christian Church .

News 4 was told the steeple can likely be reattached and the pastor hopes the church’s insurance will cover the costs.
