ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A St. Charles church is partially out of commission for the foreseeable future after a large chunk of the ceiling in its sanctuary crashed to the floor.

Immanuel Lutheran Church says no one was inside when the ceiling collapsed early Tuesday morning around 1:30. But they say major damage occurred to the pews, lights, pipe organ, grand piano and more -- nails, dust and debris litter the sanctuary. Repairs can't begin until insurance adjusters take a look.

The church says there won't be any worship services in the sanctuary "for a long time.”  They'll be moved to the Fellowship Hall until further notice.
