Investigators don't suspect arson in a fire that destroyed a Robeson County church on Friday.

Midway Presbyterian, near the town of Maxton, dates back 113 years. When it caught fire Friday, the flames destroyed the parish.

Sunday's service is still scheduled. It will be held in the parsonage.

The church sanctuary was built in 1889.
