BERKELEY (KRON)– For eight months, members of one Berkeley church were forced to worship elsewhere after a fire destroyed their building, but on Sunday its doors were open.
Last September, a four-alarm fire ripped through First Congregational Church and caused the roof to collapse.
The fire left behind $9 million in damage.
The church’s nearly 400 members were able to raise around $100,000 towards repairs, but the building repairs are far from complete.
