Lord have mercy.  Cry

People will do anything because metal is worth so much these days, stolen and resold. I hope those responsible are caught soon.

That's a shame; it's a lovely church. I've driven by it many times on my way to a safer neighborhood.

That's terrible.  My church was broken into and robbed a couple of times before we finally got an alarm system.  It was a good investment.  It's sad that churches need that sort of protection.  Lord have mercy.
