The steeple at Waynesville First Baptist Church on Main Street has been temporarily removed to repair a roof leak above the sanctuary.

Erected sometime in the early 80s, it is the second steeple at the church, said Associate Pastor John Daniels.

It weighs around 4,500 pounds and is mostly made of aluminum. Daniels said the steeple will be scrubbed and pressure washed before it is erected again, hopefully before Sunday.
