Longview Church Gets Awaited Steeple

First Baptist Church in Longview topped of its church with a new 5,000 pound steeple this weekend.  A storm back in 2004 damaged its previous steeple, and the church has been remodeling ever since.  It's the final piece to the landmark church and for many it was an emotional moment.

"It's great and when that spire is there it will point us all back to God, and that's what it's all about," said one church member.  The new steeple was made in Utah and is part of a $3 million renovation project.
