EMMETT-- The First Baptist Church of Emmett held its first service back in its sanctuary Sunday since being destroyed by an arson fire last April.

Church leaders say the community pulled together while the building was being restored.

They held services at Seventh Day Adventist for several months and were able to move back into their fellowship hall in December.

But they say there's no place like home.

This is just a beautiful setting to be able to worship the Lord, and we're just really thankful to be able to be back into this setting, said Pastor Lance Zagaris.

William Dorahush Jr. was sentenced to at least five years in prison for his part in the arson.
