Thieves steal from church Nativity scene


CEDARVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A local church says someone stole the baby Jesus from its Christmas Nativity scene.

The pastor of Cedarville United Presbyterian Church told 2 NEWS the baby Jesus has been missing from the outdoor nativity scene for about a week.

The pastor says she believes it was taken as a harmless prank, but the figure was hand-made by a parishioner who died earlier this year.

Church leaders say the nativity has extra special meaning and they would really like it back, no questions asked. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
