BAYONNE - The First Assembly of God church in Bayonne celebrated its first Mass since Superstorm Sandy on Easter Sunday.

A 6-foot storm surge brought oil and sewage through the church's doors back in October.

Reopening the church took about $350,000 in repairs, largely funded by Riverside Assembly, First Assembly's sister church in Jersey City.

Repairs at First Assembly continue. The church hopes to reopen its Beacon Christian Academy and Little Lamb preschool in August.
