Organ stolen from church in SW Philadelphia

| September 12, 2012

SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHIA – September 9, 2012 (WPVI) — Members of a church in Southwest Philadelphia were getting ready for service when they realized someone stole their church organ.

The theft happened at the New Fellowship Faith Baptist Church on 70th Street and Woodland Avenue.

Church officials say a side window was busted open and a musician's keyboard was stolen from the pulpit sometime Friday into Saturday.

Huddled in prayer, members of the church are still keeping the faith, despite hearing the negative news.

"Unfortunately, some folks don't have a sense of conscience," said Asst. Pastor Leroy Penelton.

Pastor Penelton says the news is tough to take since the church was hit hard by vandals just last year.

"Last time they got in, they really did some terrible vandalism and threw paint all over," he said.
