Congregation Attends Church After Fire

NEWPORT, AR_ A congregation attends church service after a fire damaged their building.
NEWPORT, AR_A church congregation perseveres after a fire destroyed their building, but not their faith Friday. Flames ripped through the Newport Church's sanctuary leaving nothing but a burnt shell early Friday morning.
 
 Parishioners were heartbroken by the loss, but adamant they would continue to worship.  The church's pastor says a number of churches nearby offered their buildings as stand in's, while Church of God members figure out what they will do.

"The pastor there already offered his building for Sunday afternoon, if we want to use the building, which we thought was very gracious, very thoughtful, very kind," Pastor Ricky Poole said.

Parishioners were all high spirited Sunday morning, looking to the good during this horrible time.
