Church struck twice

A fire destroyed the Albright United Methodist Church when it was struck by lightening a year ago. Now, bad luck strikes again.

To raise money for a new church, the congregation held a rummage sale. But after raising about $1,000, a teenager came along and stole it.

"And he just grabbed the two cigar boxes and ran down the alley," explains Judy Mark, a member of the church.

Some of the congregants have a message for the thief:

"If you're listening...we understand you might need the money as much as we do. We hope you put it to good use," pleads April Horvath.

"I would say, search your heart. Look deep inside. Because what you did was not just wrong to these women that were holding this rummage sale, but it was wrong in the eyes of God," says Sandi Fulbright.

Despite the double misfortune, there's a strong sense of unity among this congregation. And that they say, was only strengthened by this latest incident.

If you'd like to make a donation, call the church at (574) 259-1975.
