COLUMBIA — The Missouri United Methodist Church has spent the last four weeks creating a new roof for the church.

There were as many as 14 people on the site working with wooden planks and shingles to re-roof the church, located on South Ninth Street.

Six workers place the new shingles on the north side of the roof at Missouri Methodist Church on Tuesday afternoon. About 25,000 square feet of impact resistant shingles were used.
