BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - A Manatee County church is offering forgiveness to the man who robbed their offerings moments after the service ended.

The Bradenton Herald reports (https://bit.ly/TQX5KN) that just after 11 a.m. Sunday, a man walked into the office of Kirkwood Presbyterian Church of Bradenton, grabbed the pile of cash and checks that ushers had just brought in and walked off.

Pastor Hope Lee says the church has forgiven him. The congregation announced that with a message on its marquee sign that reads, “To the man who stole Sunday’s offering we forgive you.”

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the robbery.
