Pastor Ron Lemon with Koinonia Christian Fellowship, 1427 Peck Settlement Rd., told WNYNewsNow church offices were broken into and two laptops stolen.

Lemon also said the thieves made off with around $60 to $80 in donated change meant for children of the church.

“Please pray for justice to be done and for wisdom, discernment and knowledge for the investigators,” said Lemon. “Overall, I believe God protected us as anything of value like musical instruments, sound system, video equipment all got passed up for a little change.”

Lemon said the broken doors will be fixed and an alarm will be installed.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office at (716) 753-2131.
