Debbie Renee Eslinger, 50, and Torrey Rin Hayes, 24, have been charged in the incident.
According to Bob Gault, media relations coordinator for BCSO, Eslinger was an employee at the church.
Initially, investigators learned someone had utilized keys to gain entry to the building and some rooms inside, but also forcibly entered an accounting office.
A number of items were taken, including an XBox gaming system and several games, a small safe and a laptop computer.
Eslinger was a janitor at the church, according to information provided by BCSO Criminal Investigations Division detectives.
Detectives learned Hayes is wanted by Hamilton County authorities and is being held at the Bradley County Jail currently without bond due to a violation of probation warrant.
Both Eslinger and Hayes made an initial court appearance Wednesday and bond was set at $15,000 for each; however, Hayes will remain in jail pending the Hamilton County warrant.
Eslinger and Hayes were charged with burglary and theft over $500 and false reports for making false statements to investigators, according to Gault.
Eslinger has made bond and was released Wednesday.
