MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- Berachah Baptist Church in Middletown lost its trailer and many belongings to a theft incident between Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23.
Pastor Lemar Ferrell was on a mission trip in Jamaica and returned home to hear the trailer was missing.
Ferrell told WCPO reporter Natasha Williams a group of ladies meets at the church for a prayer group every Saturday morning.
"Between Friday evening at 5 p.m. and 7 a.m. on Saturday morning - that's when it disappeared," Ferrell said.
The thieves left little behind when they ran off with the trailer. It was parked right beside the church on N. Breiel Blvd.
Berachah Baptist is a mobile operation, growing from 17 members to more than 400. While the search is on for a permanent church, the congregation meets at Middletown High School for Sunday services.
At the time it was taken, the trailer housed lighting, sound and music equipment, materials for the children and nursery programs - a loss of about $20,000.
"This is discouraging," Ferrell said, "but we just have to march on."
According to Ferrell, even though the equipment is important, it's not what makes the church whole. While not all the pieces from the loss are put back together, he said services on Sunday must go on. The church met for worship Sunday, and will continue to meet on Sunday mornings.
Middletown police are asking for help in tracking the trailer down, and need more information on the white trailer. Anyone who can help is asked to call (513) 425-7766.
