Arsonist targets Tacoma Lutheran church

A member of the Our Savior Lutheran Church describes the damage caused by an arsonist.

TACOMA, Wash. -- A Tacoma congregation gathered for Sunday morning service for the first time since an arsonist targeted Our Savior Lutheran Church.

Investigators say early Friday morning, someone set one fire in the lobby and two fires in the sanctuary.
Lead Pastor Brian Banke says he knows the congregation wants answers. But at a prayer gathering Saturday, he asked members to keep hope and perspective.

The church held two services Sunday morning at Mount Rainier Lutheran High School. It is looking into other temporary locations until the church can rebuild.
