A passerby noticed flames at Trinity Episcopal Church around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.

 

This church is very involved in the community and runs the "Family Kitchen" that feeds the homeless out of their adjacent church building.

 

Interim pastor Roy Green says a lot of programs and people wil  be affected by this fire.

 

"It's devastating.  We're strong people.  We will come together. We're in the resurrection business.  This is a beloved building for a lot of people.  AA groups meet here.  Now we don't have a place for them.  It's heartbreaking."

 

Investigators are looking into seven arson fires in all, two church buidlings, three sheds and garages and two cars.

 

Police found snowy footprints near the church and say rocks apparently had been thrown thorugh the church's windows.
