San Antonio church gets items on loan after burglary

First Christian Church burglarized Friday

A West side church that was burglarized Friday had Sunday service as usual, thanks to the donations of local churches.

SAN ANTONIO – A west San Antonio church received some assistance from nearby churches after it was targeted by burglars.

Burglars broke into the First Christian Church on Friday and stole musical instruments, a freezer and the church's audio system.

However, Sunday service went on as normal with a couple of items on loan from nearby churches.

The break-in will cost First Christian Church close to $1,000, but Pastor Yoan Mora said he holds no grudges.

"He loves the people, he doesn't approve of what they are doing but he loves the people so there is a second chance so we invite these people to come to God and change their life," said Mora.

A police report was filed and surveillance video from across the street has been requested. Authorities said there are no suspect leads as of Sunday night.
