Houston church facing lawsuit alleging child abuse

A Houston church is facing a lawsuit involving disturbing accusations of child abuse. 

The lawyers representing the family told FOX 26 about the lawsuit that was filed on Wednesday. 

SUGGESTED: Mother, girlfriend allegedly abused, deprived children of food in Harris County

The suit alleges a four-year-old was sexually molested and beaten in a bathroom by a teacher at Champion Forest Baptist Church on Stuebner Airline.
