The Red Goose Deli in Paragould has changed owners and is now undergoing remodeling.

The Fellowship Paragould Church purchased the building for the whole community to use.

The church plans to hold Sunday services in the downtown building, but every other day in the week it will be rented out for banquets, weddings and community events.

Right now church members are working on remodeling the building and restoring it to the original brick state.

“We will re-model and restore it to its original look and then just give it as a gift back to the city so it can be used for banquets or weddings or different events that can be a blessing to the community,” Pastor Jared Pickney said.

Members started work on the building around 5 p.m. on Friday and will work all throughout Saturday.

Fellowship Pastor Jared Pickney told Region 8 News the Red Goose Deli will now be called The Crossing.

Pickney said the name comes from Paragould history.

“We named it The Crossing because Paragould originally was founded by two railroad companies crossing right here in the city so people before they knew it as Paragould called it the crossing, and so to honor our city’s roots we decided to call it that,” Pickney said.

Pickney said he hopes construction will be done in April.

Several people have already reached out to reserve the space for future events.
