LaFollete church members don't mind small worship center on Easter

On December 9, 2012, fire officials said they believe an arsonist sparked a fire that destroyed Fincastle Church of God.

The church has spent the last four months rebuilding and just this weekend the roof was finally put on the new sanctuary.

On Easter, church members spent yet another Sunday worshipping inside a temporary building, but Fincastle Church of God members don't mind the venue change. They're just happy to be close.

Pastor Mike Smith has surprisingly enjoyed the past four months, "It's good we have adjusted to it, it's a little tight at times."
