As Local Profile previously reported, the McKinney church was vandalized with swastikas, hate speech and arson. The vandalism found before the Sunday church service on August 28 was the second time the Stonebridge United Methodist was targeted in a racist and antisemic attack. An employee of the church discovered the vandalism, and police were promptly called to investigate. The first incident on August 17 contained messages of white supremacy and other symbols of hate. The second vandalism included a spray painted message saying, “Not my best work yet…” prompting questions and worry as to if the vandal will hit the church again.

McKinney Police are still working to find those responsible for the crimes and hope the public will come forward with knowledge of what happened. The investigation will continue, and congregation members of Stonebridge United Methodist are still attending church despite the racist and antisemitic attacks.
