Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A church congregation is returning to its old stomping grounds.

Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church’s sanctuary caught fire in January. One building had to be torn down; two others had water damage.

They were holding services in a different church, but next month, they’ll be back where they belong.

A church trustee says the cause of the fire is still unknown.
