It was bound to happen sooner or later, just like in that old Ray Stevens song a squirrel actually did go to church. And just like in the song it caused quite a stir!

Here's the video from the Vestavia Hills United Methodist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.

It seems the squirrel made its way into the service by way of an upper level stained glass window, then headed for the balcony and the normally restrained Methodists started getting the Ghost. You can hear the occasional scream or shout in the video. Ultimately the surprise guest was ushered out, with a little encouragement by congregants wielding offering plates herding him along his way, and the service got back down to business.

I guess you never know who's going to show up for Sunday services.
