IOWA CITY, IOWA- Some churches are known for the way they really get down during worship.

And for neighbors of a church in Iowa City — worship music has them all worked up!

Apparently it’s been so loud— they’ve been calling the cops!

Three straight Sundays in a row, police have had respond to noise complaints at the New Creations International Church.

They open the windows which adds a little more of the worship to be exposed to the neighborhood.

And that’s because the church doesn’t have air conditioning— so it gets stuffy in there quick.

Pastor smith says they aren’t breaking the laws with their loud worship, and police haven’t handed out any tickets.

The church is taking donations to help pay for an air conditioning system…. hey angry neighbors, ya hear that? maybe they’ll help pitch in.

Yea know, because air conditioning means closed windows and a quieter neighborhood— an answer to everybody’s prayers, right?!
