CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Members of a south Charlotte church received an unpleasant surprise recently.

It appears some neighborhood children were playing paintball on the grounds of Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church off of Kuykendall Road between Providence and McKee roads and wound up hitting the building a number of times.

Churchgoers think it was an accident.

"We feel it’s not anything directed against our church, and we feel it’s not representative of the children in this neighborhood," church member Stephen Flaherty said.

Flaherty says he hopes the kids will take their paintball game into the woods instead of playing on church property.
