The Church of Christ on Country Club Road haven’t let the actions of vandals disrupt their plans for a busy Easter weekend.

Lt. Mike Hopson, head of the Ennis Police Department’s criminal investigation division, confirmed unknown suspects scrawled graffiti over several buildings in the 1500 block of Country Club Road, including several buildings belonging to the church.

He said some of the graffiti read “Hail Satan” and included a pentagram.

Scott Brazell, minister at the Church of Christ, said many church and community members have pitched in to remedy the damage.

“We’re well on our well to cleaning it up,” Brazell said. “Doors are getting painted that needed to be painted anyway. It’s working out to be a blessing.”
