JASPER, Ga. (WSB) -- Officials are investigating a fire that destroyed a local church Saturday night.

A member of the congregation sent Channel 2 Action News video of the fire at the Gospel Outreach Church of North Georgia in Jasper.

The church member said congregants will meet for services in the morning at the Senior Citizen Center on Lee Newton Park next to the Chamber of Commerce.

The congregant said other congregants are trying to keep positive because the church is more than the material things inside.  She said it is about friends and family.  She said they had just celebrated their one year anniversary and there was so much stuff inside. She is confident they will recover.

There is no word yet what caused the fire.
