WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- A woman faces charges of breaking into Waynesboro Mennonite Church on August 12th.
She is out on bond now and the pastor at the church says he is sad to know someone they knew was accused.
Pastor Howard Miller said Sarah Drenning was not a member of the church, but was someone members of the church walked with and tried to help for two and a half years.
Drenning faces charges of willingly or maliciously destroying church property and trespassing church property at night.
Waynesboro Police Department said it found a door shattered and blood on the walls. A computer was also missing.
"It's kind of a grief for me, kind of a sadness that Sarah is at the place of her life that she is at," said Pastor Miller.
He said Drenning did this in an act of rage.
"I think it's quite different than that and I see it as different, than simply an act of vandalism. Simply an act of rage from a person, kind of a cry for help actually," said Pastor Miller.
The church has a recovery group that meets on Tuesday nights which helps people with hurts, habits and hang ups.
