As many of you know already, our church was subjected to a hateful vandalism this weekend. On Sunday morning, church member Suzan Windnagel discovered banners with racist, homophobic slurs and threats posted to our church's playground fence and called 911. Rev. Charlie posted Suzan's photos to Facebook here. The incident has been written about in the news media here, here, and here.
We are hosting a community response. Here is the church's press release about the event:
