CARUTH, MO (KAIT) -

A church in Missouri is looking for answers after their bell was stolen two weeks before Easter.

The Caruth United Methodist Church contacted the sheriff in Dunklin County when they discovered their bell was taken from their church sign.

Pastor Jim Pemberton said he hopes that it would be found and returned to them.

He said it hurts to see something taken away from the small congregation.

“As Christians we don’t want to think of someone doing acts of this nature, but they happen and we all realize that,” Pemberton said. “So the congregation is handling it the best that they can, but they are very sad. Especially it happened here during Easter season.”

This is not the first time the congregation has experienced theft. 

About four years ago an air conditioning unit was stolen off the property and never returned.

Pemberton said he hopes whoever took the bell will return it with no questions asked.

He said if the bell is not returned or found, the church will discuss purchasing a new one.

Anyone with any information about the theft is asked to contact the Dunklin County Sheriff’s Department.
