BROOKLYN - The sanctuary at Flatbush-Tompkins Congregational Church has been restored after it suffered a partial ceiling collapse.

Wear and tear caused the 114-year-old sanctuary ceiling to collapse in April 2012.

Today, hundreds gathered to pray and give thanks after the 17-month restoration.

Church leaders say they don't yet have an exact cost of the restorations, but say the money came from fundraising.
