CBNNews.com - Alaska governor Sarah Palin's church held services Sunday in a local school despite a fire that badly burned their church building.
Authorities say a fire was set at the main entrance of the Wasilla Bible Church on Friday.
"The definition of the church is the body of Christ, made up of God's people," Pastor John Doak said after the hour-long service. "The church is still there. We are the church."
Some 1,200 people attended the service.
Palin told her pastor said she was sorry if the fire was connected to any "undeserved negative attention" during her vice-presidential campaign.
The damage to the two-year-old building is estimated at a million dollars.
She was not at Sunday's church service because she was in Juneau working on the state's budget.
