Church Stolen

May 12, 2005 by

Point Hope United Methodist Church in Mount Pleasant, S.C. faced a unique challenge when their church was stolen. Their church was housed in a trailer which they parked and locked up until Sunday morning. Come last Sunday when church member Bill Yaeger went to pick up the church, it was gone.

“It was kind of shocking, at first were as a congregation were mad, but then we realize that we just have to pull through,” said Yaeger.

One Response to “Church Stolen”

    That’s sad but hilarious. Our church is currently meeting each week in a Boys & Girls Club, and we are so thankful that they allow us to store our “church” on their facility. For the first year, though, we had our “church” in two trailers. I can’t imagine what we would have done if someone had stolen our trailers.
    They would have ended up with more than hymnals and an altar though… a couple thousand dollars in sound and video equipment and a cappuccino machine!
