Congregation to have first service since arson at Frayser church

A Frayser church destroyed by an arsonist will have Sunday service for the first time today.

Members of the New Salem Fellowship Ministries will gather at the New Salem Baptist Church on South Parkway for worship.

The church located on Hawkins Mill Road was set to fire last week.

The pastor tells FOX13 the church sustained an estimated $80,000 in damages.

Investigators are still working to find the people responsible for intentionally setting the fire.
