Valley church reopens after heavy rainfall leaves damage

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Valley church damaged by last week's heavy rainfall opened its doors to parishioners for the first time since the storm.
   
Thanks to a massive volunteer effort by the congregation, everyone was back inside Hope Church Sunday.
   
The building, located at Maryland Parkway and Cactus, was damaged after rain sent water pouring into the church, tearing up the street and parking lot along with it.

 "It wasn't about a building," said Vance Pitman Sr. Pastor, Hope Church. "It was about a people coming together for a cause, and that's really what the church is."
   
The church does not have any flood insurance and will have to rely on more volunteer work and donations in order to return the property to its original condition.
