After burning down in a fire on New Year's Day in 2012, the Somers Congregational Church has been rebuilt and rededicated.

The Main Street church held a dedication ceremony Wednesday, officially turning the lights back on after a year's worth of construction, WFSB reported.

The church's pastor, the Rev. Barry Cass, told WFSB that there was a concern as to whether the building would be rebuilt. The Journal-Inquirer reported that the congregation was able to raise $1.2 million toward the construction, and that insurance paid $6.2 million for the replacement.

The original church that burned down was built in 1842.
