For the second time this year, a Bulloch County church has been struck by tragedy. With just two days to Christmas, the Bulloch County church that was destroyed by fire has now been hit by vandals. On Saturday morning, someone broke into the church social hall at Lawrence Baptist Church, stealing thousands of dollars of church property. The thieves took valuable Master's Collection prints depicting the Lord's Supper and Escape from Egypt, as well as antique furniture and the church's copy machine.
