WESTMORELAND COUNTY, PA – The pastor and members of the Mount Nebo Independent Community Church are concerned about the vandalism and who is responsible.
“You immediately think: ‘Why? “And the only thing I can understand is that someone doesn’t have God in their life,” said Pastor Greg Butler.
Butler said he was shocked when he entered the church and saw broken glass all over the floor. He looked up and found holes in the windows.
“Fortunately, they didn’t throw anything away. They must have hit him with something. But the figure of Jesus was still there and the cross was still there too. They didn’t fall, ”Butler said.
“That’s what touched me the most, that they come to the house of God and do something like that. It hit me hard, ”said Gregg Thompson, JNS tow truck operator.
The owners of JNS Towing got an idea after hearing about the vandalism.
“I mean it’s a church and as a Christian you feel like you should be doing something good for the community,” said owner Crystal Conde.
Although no items were stolen from the church, JNS Towing paid $ 500 as a reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction for the perpetrator.
Butler said it has a deeper meaning.
“I just feel like you better get right with the Lord. If you don’t have God in your life, you’ve got a problem. Hand it over to Jesus because he is the one who died for each of us, ”he said.
