SOUTHINGTON, Conn. (WFSB) -

A Southington church received a generous donation after their outdoor benches were stolen last week.

First Baptist Church was targeted by thieves who stole three benches that were used for a prayer garden.

The benches were donated by Washington Concrete of Plainville.

Pastor Sharon Holt said the incident has restored her faith.

"It went from being a terribly disheartening story to being an inspirational story. Once I post on Southington Talks and once your news story appeared, people started contacting me immediately offering help," said Holt.

Now the parish is happy they have a shady spot to in once again.
