A Waterloo church had to hold morning services with another church Sunday after burglars ransacked and vandalized the church building.
It happened sometime either late Friday or early Saturday at Burton Avenue Baptist Church.
Pastor Garry Moore says a janitor noticed the damage when he came in Saturday morning.
He says the thieves broke in a back door, stole computers and audio equipment, then took the fire extinguishers off the wall and sprayed the foam everywhere.
Moore says he was disappointed when he heard and saw what happened.
"We just realized as we discussed it that these things were going to happen because people don't know Christ is their personal savior and they live and they do what they want to do," said Rev. Moore.
Moore says he was thankful for Hagerman Baptist Church to reach out and offer to share services Sunday.
So far, police have not made any arrests.
