LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Neighbors of a suburban Atlanta church say the congregation has brought new meaning to making a joyful noise.
Residents such as Rachel LaLiberty and Patty Bakmac — whose homes back up to the International House of Prayer in Lawrenceville — say the church holds worship service at all hours of the day and night, with loud music.
LaLiberty tells The Gwinnett Daily Post that the bass from the music shakes the house inside, toppling things over.
The International House of Prayer opened its doors in Lawrenceville in 2004.
Since February 2006, the church has had its "prayer room" open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Daily Post reports that messages left for church officials were not returned.
