The pastor of Covenant Baptist Church said it is a place of hope and faith, and it is disappointing that someone decided to put a negative message on the church wall.
Obscene words with a reference to God and satanic images are covered with a towel on one wall of the church. Power washing did not wipe them away.
The cloth does not cover the framework of the disturbing graffiti.
"I think it is sad that they would attack the church," said the Rev. Owen Byrum.
Byrum said Tuesday night, a janitor discovered the spray paint on the back of the Covenant Baptist Church. It is right next to the children's playground.
The pastor said fortunately, no one has been there in the past few days except the vandal or vandals.
"I'm sorry you had to express yourself this way," Byrum said.
The pastor said the images won't change anyone's mind, and they will be removed.
"What have they accomplished?" Byrum asked.
He said he hopes that being on church grounds changes the vandals.
"They might see the senseless act that it is and maybe even repent," Byrum said.
This is the final night of Vacation Bible School. There will be a celebration, and people will be able to move more freely. The pastor said he may ask people to stay away from that area so that the event isn't marred by those ugly images.
