We wrote about the email we received last week from our church about some suspicious activity, as you may know. It told us that all doors would be locked during the service except for the front door and that there would be police presence from now on.
Today, we went to the Bible study before worship, but when we got to the sanctuary to attend the service, the pastor announced that the service would be canceled. The FBI told them to have everyone leave and that no further activities (small groups and youth group) would take place today.
Apparently, the church was broken into last night and nothing was taken, but the FBI was worried about what may have been left at the church because of the person who caused concern in the first place. So the FBI was going to do a thorough search of the buildings. We just prayed, the pastor blessed us, and we left.
Later this afternoon, we got an email saying that the FBI had completed their search, along with their bomb-sniffing dogs, and they had given the all-clear.
That’s good, but it all really stinks doesn’t it.
