DANVILLE, Va. -

Members of a Danville church are cleaning up hate messages that were left on their building.

A photo posted on the Facebook page for Schoolfield Church of the Brethren shows an anarchy symbol, a pentagram, and an upside down cross painted in red on the back of the church.  The phrase "Ave Satanas," Latin for "Hail Satan," was written underneath the images.

The Danville Police Department is investigating.
