UTICA, Ky. (WEHT) – A historic church in Utica was recently robbed, but the church says it is using this time to continue its worship of God.
On Facebook, the Green Brier Baptist Church posted a photo of the trailer that was stolen from church property. A church spokesman said it belonged to a painter and was full of all their tables and chairs from the Fellowship Hall which was being repainted.
In a social media post, Green Brier shows that they can keep their spirits up even after such a loss. Part of the message said:
“While we are saddened by this, we also understand that we live in a very, very different world from our eternal home in paradise. God sent his son Jesus to redeem us from the clutches of evil and it doesn’t matter if we have chairs to sit on or tables to share communion – WE WILL ALWAYS PRAISE HIM. God is good and He can take such an unfortunate event and bring a blessing to it. He’s so big he can! We will pray for this today. Pray for what has been lost – both for the painter and the church – we trust God in all of these things…and we will continue to proclaim HIS REDEMPTION message to all in need – every week – so come visit… Sunday at 11 am… We continue to have our pews, his word and our adoration! “
The Daviess County Sheriff’s Office has since gotten involved and is asking for the public’s help. Deputies ask you to call the sheriff’s office or Crime Stoppers if you saw the stolen trailer, identified as a white 2019 Homesteader enclosed trailer.
