133-year-old Florida church shuts its doors

TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida church is shutting its doors after 133 years. The First Presbyterian Church of Titusville, founded in 1887, held its final service Sunday. Interim Pastor Rev. Laura Viau said the decision did not come easy.  The congregation had slowly dwindled to about 40 even though the church seats more than 400.  She said the tipping point came after Hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne did major structural damage in 2004, costing about $100,000. Florida Today reports the church plans to sell the building.
