Newport Church of God plans to rebuild after fire

(WMC-TV) - The Newport Church of God near Jonesboro, Arkansas, plans to rebuild after a fire ripped through the building early Friday morning.

Yet, thanks to two neighboring churches, they already have a place to worship until work is complete. The First United Pentecostal Church and the Newport Pentecostal Church of God allowed members to hold services there today.

"We would hope that someone would allow us that same privilege if tragedy was to happen to our church. We just wanted to be there for them," stated Newport Pentecostal Church of God Pastor Jay Cox.

Newport Church of God Pastor, Ricky Poolehopes, hopes to have plans for a new building finalized and the wreckage cleared in six months.
