They say they want to be a guilding light in their community, and that light hasn’t dimmed since a fire destroyed their Kanawha County church.

But now investigators are saying the fire that destroyed the New Life Center Church was arson.

The church faced opposition when after they started a petition to keep bars out of Cedar Grove, and some members think that may be why their church was burned down.

But despite the fire, their fight forges on, in a different location…one they say is in trouble and needs their help.

The fire also burned two houses near the church, and the state fire marshall is offering a $2500 reward for information leading to the arrest of person who started the blaze.
