A Dauphin County congregation marched back into its church Sunday, almost one year after its original sanctuary was destroyed by fire.

Members of the Turner Memorial Missionary Baptist Church in Steelton left their sister church and walked up 19th Street singing hymns. They then held the first service in their new building.

Last September, fire swept through the original church building, creating a huge hole in its roof.

At the time, the reverend promised to rebuild on the exact same spot on Watson Street. The church has been in Steelton since 1966.
