The First Congregational Church of Wilmot is hosting public gathering this weekend to respond to anti-semitic graffiti recently discovered on the church’s front door.
A couple weeks ago, reverend Sara Marean drove up to her church for the Sunday service and found the scrawled in black permanent marker across the building’s white door. She says it was a shock to her community.
Marean said the vandalism came as a shock to her community. “Wilmot’s a small town,” she said. Many people know their neighbors. It’s hard to have this happen in a place that feels so safe and secure.”
Local police are investigating the incident, but so far have no leads, she said. The church’s rainbow flag has also been ripped down repeatedly over the past year.
The public is welcome to attend the event Sunday, which will include song and reflection starting at 2pm.
