LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -

If your neighbors were loud at all hours of the night, you would call the police. But what if your neighbors were a church? What would you do? Neighbors of a Lawrenceville church are asking that question after they say a church is rattling their windows at all hours of the night.

Neighbors of the International House of Prayer located at 1625 Collins Hill Road in Lawrenceville say the church is rattling their windows with their 24-hour worship services. They say that while they agree they have the right to worship, they wish they would not do it so loudly or at all hours of the day and night.

The church tells FOX 5 News that they are not trying to be bad neighbors.
