At one point you can hear one of the girls yell, “We gotta go now, we gotta go now!”
One neighbor that reported the incident spotted them going into the church. The young ladies were questioned by police, but no charges were filed because the church chose not to.
Desjardins said, “This shows that there’s a lot of anger, a lot of hatred, a lot there that needs to be removed and only God can do that. But if we can be a part in this community to help individuals on that path, such as these folks, then we want to be.”
The pastor is hoping and praying they come clean up the church, which has an estimated tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage. Willow Grove Baptist Church was built in 1890.
