I got a call this morning that our church had been burglarized and vandalized. Someone broke into the church late this week and made a heck of a mess.
We got the deputy out there and we tried to decide what had been stolen. It looks like they were searching for money and copper. When they found that we had no money and very little copper, they decided to vandalize the sanctuary by setting off fire extinguishers, which probably caused more damage than the vandalism. Fire extinguisher powder coated the pews, carpets, altar and walls. It looks like the vandal squireted the powder directly into our organ and piano. Our office is trashed and we're not sure if the computer will work until it's cleaned. They cut the cords from everything, trashed the sound system and even took the cords from the vacuum cleaners.
The odd thing is that they didn't use our fire extinguishers. They brought their own. The church fire extinguishers are just fine. We had services this morning in the kitchen, and tomorrow I'm meeting a cleaning crew at 9:00 in the morning.
It takes a worthless person to vandalize a church. May God have mercy on his soul. If I get my hands on him, little mercy will be shown.
