Authorities need your help finding information after what they're calling a "senseless act of vandalism."

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office say windows were broken out of the Darrow Road Wesleyan Church south of Superior. It happened between Saturday evening and Sunday morning. 

According to the church, three windows, the glass in two doors and the mailbox were damaged. Senior Pastor Mark Holmes tells Eyewitness News "we're more concerned about what would cause a person to do something like can be repaired but people need to be helped so that's what we're concerned about."

The church says no services were canceled and that the congregation is helping make fixes. Insurance is expected to cover the cost of repairs.

If you have any information or saw something suspicious call 715-395-1371 or 911.
