Church victimized financially, spiritually by alleged $160K theft

| January 23, 2011

BUFFALO – The theft of $160,000 from a Buffalo church could mean the loss of its full-time pastor and a reduction in outreach work.

“Right now, the funds we have are not going to be able to support a full-time pastor,” said the Rev. Jennifer Seder of Buffalo’s Fountain of Life United Methodist Church. “We are working on ways I can stay here as long as possible for myself to heal, and for the community to heal.”

Deborah Moore, 46, of the 1200 block of Stanton Airport Road in Riverton, who worked at the church, allegedly took the $160,000 between October 2009 and December 2010.

“It’s more than the money. It’s the whole situation,” Seder said. “Debbie is someone who was loved and trusted. We are feeling very victimized. It’s affecting the congregation and the greater community.”
