“We thank God that no one was injured and nothing was stolen.” – First United Methodist Church of Freehold Pastor Wil Wilson [#WeThankGod]
“While the damage is shocking and disturbing, we thank God that no one was injured and nothing was stolen.” – First United Methodist Church of Freehold, New Jersey Pastor Wil Wilson
A Freehold Borough church’s decades-old organ was damaged overnight Wednesday when someone snuck in and tried to steal some of the instrument’s decorative pipes according to the church’s pastor.
First United Methodist Church, New Jersey of Freehold Pastor Wil Wilson knew something was not right when he arrived Wednesday morning and noticed things were slightly out of place.
When Wil Wilson walked into the sanctuary, he saw pipes that typically stand behind the organ lying on the floor and haphazardly piled on top of the instrument.
Wil Wilson theorized the vandals tried to take the pipes after coming in through a door which had not properly latched the night before. None were taken, and many of the pipes — which date back to at least the 1960s — might not need replacing.
The vandals caused between $15,000 and $20,000 worth of damage. Nothing else was stolen during the incident.
“While the damage is shocking and disturbing, we thank God that no one was injured and nothing was stolen.”
