Church building vandalized, burglarized


The Lighthouse Holiness Tabernacle church building in West Shreveport fell victim to vandals Wednesday morning, just a week after the building was burglarized.

According to Lighthouse Holiness Tabernacle Pastor Stacey Holden, bricks were thrown through the church building windows.

"This is the house of God, you would think that people would have enough of a conscious that they wouldn't do anything like this," says Holden.

The building is still under construction, and isn't set to open its doors until Easter 2014.

"Very unfortunate, definitely a setback to say the least," says Holden.

Last week, Holden says the church was also burglarized. The burglars got away with the front doors to the church.

"Why would someone want to steal the doors off of our church," says Holden.

 "When you're in the process of getting things together, it seems like every time we have a work day then something bad happens," says Church Member Jimmy Davis.

Pastor Holden says between the two incidents it will cost the church around $10,000.

The church is planning an upcoming fundraiser on April 13th. The church is asking for donations for the 20 mile bike-a-thorn. For more information you can send an email to
