    The vandals also hit two neighboring businesses.

    The church's pastor, Wilburn Lefler, said he is praying for the suspects and the community.

    "Show people that there's still a lot of godly people in this town that love the Lord and serve the Lord," he said.

    If caught, the suspects will face charges of misdemeanor graffiti vandalism.
