JAMESTOWN, N.C. — The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a church was vandalized sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning.
Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown was spray painted, had flowers torn up, parking signs were ripped up and windows were broken.
The church sign was also broken and letters removed and the front entrance to the church was egged and sprayed with silly string.
One spray-painted message on the church door reads, “God loves (expletive)!!! He hates you!” Another said “Gay’s ok!”
The church bus was also damaged by the suspects keying the hood and pushing a sign through the front grill.
Damage is estimated at about $10,000, according to the Guilford County Sheriff's Office. Members of the church spent Saturday cleaning up.
The pastor of the church told FOX8 he does not know why this church was vandalized. He said the church will still have service on Sunday.
Deputies remained on the scene Saturday morning. The investigation is ongoing.
