PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 church is rising from the ashes again after a fire destroyed their previous building last year.

It was the second time that's happened to Brown's Chapel Church in about 26 years. Construction has begun to put the new building in the same location at 2493 Greene 765 Road in Paragould.
Pastor Royce Boling said everyone has pulled together during this difficult time.

"Definitely you are heartbroken when something like this happens," said Pastor Boling. "But you see all the people coming together in unity and looking forward to a new building."

He said the number of people in their congregation increased after the fire. Pastor Boling said they hope to have services open again in July.

If you would like to help Brown's Chapel in their rebuilding efforts contact Pastor Boling. The number to call is 870-239-5450.
