Before it’s 9 a.m. Sunday service began, a suspicious package was found at Cathedral of Hope and the church was evacuated, according to posts on Facebook.

Scott Adams left the following message on his Facebook wall with the accompanying picture:

“Cathedral of Hope
Suspicious package left at front door and we have been evacuated, sad day”

Cathedral of Hope posted:

“The Cathedral of Hope was evacuated this morning at about 8:05 this morning following some suspicious packages found on the premises. This will not deter us from worship this morning and we will continue to not walk in fear or allow instances of hate to overcome the promise to love.”

Police are on the scene.
