The congregation of Elkin Valley Baptist Church were expecting to be worshiping in their brand-new sanctuary by May of this year, but construction has been derailed – after more than $793,000 dollars the church had raised for the project was ‘stolen by internet scammers’ (using a ‘cloned’ email). ‘While they hope to continue, as much as possible, with the construction’, Senior Pastor Johnny Blevins telling the Elkin Tribune that ‘they have no idea if any of the stolen funds will (ever) be recovered’. The FBI is currently investigating the crime.
