DENTON, Texas (AP) — Police are investigating bomb threats mailed to two churches in the North Texas city of Denton before Christmas Eve services.
The threats did not deter churchgoers at Denton Bible Church or St. Andrew Presbyterian Church. Officers provided extra security at entrances and parking lots, and churchgoers attended services as planned. No incidents were reported.
Police believe the same person mailed threatening letters to both churches.
St. Andrew pastor Alan Baroody told WFAA-TV that the church would “prefer to live in hope” rather than fear.
