Valley City church prepares new space, waits for answers after fire
VALLEY CITY — The walls and floor inside Faith Lutheran Church are almost entirely charred black.
Hymnals are burned onto the backs of pews.
Stained-glass windows are cracked.
And an overwhelming scent of smoke still lingers from the fire that damaged the church Oct. 21.
The church building is still blocked off as a crime scene by police signs and barricade tape because arson was determined as the cause of the fire.
