A surveillance camera captured an image of a white sedan near the church, located on Hadensville-Fife Road, after Wednesday night's bible study.

Members of the church, which was founded in 1865, said they were praying for the people who did the damage and that they hoped those people were brought to justice.

"It would be someone who is familiar with this road, who frequents this area," church member Julia Price said.
