Probe of Four-Alarm Church Blaze Ongoing

The flames spread from the church to a school

The congregation will meet Sunday, Gray said, in the church's education center across the street, and will do so as long as necessary, and the school will be in full operation by the end of the holiday break, wherever classes must meet.

And the pastor, now in his 12th year at the church, was sure his flock would survive this blow.

"This is a loving community, and it's a resilient one," he said. "We're going to rebuild, and we're going to do it right."
