    I’m working on a book about hauntings in Noble County, and I’ve learned the church was investigated–and declared clear of ghosts. Here’s a note on an Indiana haunting site from NEIPIS:

    I stumbled upon your site and wanted to let you know that the Church on Mitchell and Riley is not haunted. My group investigated the church to assist them in the removal of their facility from such lists. We did 80 hours of investigating and found no activity, and were able to find rational causes for all the claims. Also every time a their listing was removed from a site, within a week it was re posted, due to the person who began this story was a person of their church that was asked to leave. It is her way of getting back at them.

    All they want is to have services and a growing following without people interrupting the services with paranormal equipment. Too long this church has dealt with this pain and they really just want to grow in the community.
