Macedonia AME Church vandalized

Unknown vandals recently damaged the marquee outside Macedonia AME Church in Carrollton.

According to Capt. Tommy Potter, spokesman for the Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office, the incident was reported Jan. 8. No arrests have been made.

While the church has a majority Black congregation, Potter said there’s no evidence at the moment to suggest the vandalism was racially motivated.

The church has since hung a new message from the vandalized sign, which reads, “God saw what you did and we forgive you … Please know we are praying for you because we care.”
