The church on 8th Street and Benton Boulevard was set on fire March 4 around 8 p.m.

Charred debris, including one of the church doors was left sitting on the lawn outside the church. Workers had to fasten sheets of plywood over the entrance.

Fire crews said most of the damage was relegated to the entrance.

Church leaders said it could cost about $3,000 to repair the damages. The church will incur additional costs to hire someone to get rid of the smell.

Four years ago, this church also had a fire in the sanctuary.
