STOKESDALE, N.C. -- Gideon Grove United Methodist Church in Rockingham County held their first service on Easter Sunday since being the victim of arson last year.

The service was held inside a tent and with folding chair instead of pews.

Authorities said an arsonist set the church on fire a few days before last Christmas. It was one of several fires set at Methodist Churches late last year into January.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
