Parishioners Heartbroken after Church Fire

NEWPORT, AR - Churchgoers heartbroken by the loss of their sanctuary in a Friday fire are adamant they will continue to worship.

The church's pastor, Ricky Poole, says numerous neighboring churches offered their buildings as stand ins 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 Poole said.

They tell us parishioners were all high spirited this morning looking to the good during this horrible time.
