(WMC-TV) - A Jonesboro church picks up the pieces after a fire took their building early Friday morning.

The cause of the fire at the Newport Church of God remains under investigation.

Members stuck together and found another place to gather and worship since the blaze destroyed their church.

"We feel like we can make it through this with God's grace," said Newport Church of God pastor Ricky Poole.

The Newport Fire Department said the fire started in the fellowship hall and then spread quickly through the rest of the building.

An insurance adjuster plans to look over the damage in the next few days.
