At Garrett's Chapel Baptist Church, the peacefulness is reflected in the birds, flowers, and well, just about everything on this day.
It is a much different scene than last July when Walker County fire officials rolled in
Pastor David Harris, at Garrett's Chapel Baptist Church, says, "It's kinda sad to see all that go."
For the last nine months lives reflected overturned pews and charred hymnals.
Caution tape still blows in the wind.
Church members agree this Easter is bittersweet.
Harris adds, "Yeah, bittersweet you know. We miss the old church."
Fire officials have ruled the blaze arson.
The price tag to this damage? Hold on to your Easter bonnets because it is close to three quarters of a million dollars.
Darrell Madaris, a church member, says, "We've kinda forgiven them."
Forgiven, but not forgotten, especially when they have to use a make shift sanctuary for their Easter service.
Well, every service for that matter.
Madaris adds, "This is the first one [Easter] I spent out there."
Sure there is no fancy sound equipment, but some church members say the only bells and whistles they really care about are the ones they preserved.
Madaris adds, "You know the building has very little to do with it because as long as God's there, it doesn't matter where you spend it."
It has taken six months for their insurance adjuster to move the claim forward, and another three to build the walls of the new church.
Some church members admit they would be lying if they said they were not just a little bit antsy to get in the new building.
Harris adds, "It seems like it's taking forever."
It is anticipation of what is to come.
Harris says, "Some people are coming in and picking out the Sunday school room that they want to be their Sunday school room, and that's exciting, very exciting to do that."
New memories and new music, but better than that they say, they will take two old words with them wherever they go.
Madaris says those words are this, "God's Good."
Now, there is still a large reward for any information that leads to an arrest in this case.
