Paragould church reports second break-in

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)- The First Assembly of God church in Paragould has had their second break-in over a 6 week period.

It was just last year that the back of the church's Family Life Center was vandalized. In January, the church was broken into where several guitars and audio equipment was stolen.
And on Friday, the church was hit again.

The front door of the church was shattered, and when senior pastor, Tim Snavely, arrived at the church Friday night, he said the door was still open but nothing was missing.

"Whoever is doing this, we don't know, could it have been the same people, we don't know that," said Snavely. "Why do we keep getting hit, I don't know if we are an easy target."

Snavely said they are looking to take more security measures since the last break-in but he believes all of this happened for a reason.

"I don't think things are accidents, I believe there is reason and I know without a shadow of a doubt that God has a specific purpose for us being here," he said.

Snavely said he was called to this church about 2 years ago and nothing can scare him away.

"We're open on Sunday mornings and Sunday night and Wednesday night," Snavely said. "You don't have to bust in, we will gladly let you come in and we will give you something a whole lot better."

Snavely said the break-ins are under investigation but the police found no evidence from either incident.
