Anderson was charged with unlawful operation of a methamphetamine lab. He’s being held at the York County Jail in Alfred on $50,000 bail.
Officials say church services will be held elsewhere while the building is decontaminated.
“We are deeply distressed and saddened by the discovery of what police describe as a ‘portable meth lab,’” a church spokesperson said.
There is no word on when the church will re-open.
