A virtual service held by a Greensboro church was reportedly disrupted by pornographic images, racial slurs and threatening words of hate on Sunday.

Nicholas Glenn, the minister of Sharpe Road Church of Christ, told FOX 8 a group of "about four to five different people" got into the congregation's service on Zoom and identified themselves as white supremacists, posting "MAGA," "white lives matter," and used racial slurs in the chat.

“My wife looked at the chat box and she saw it and was like, ‘Stop the broadcast,’” Glenn explained to FOX 8.

Minister Glenn said the posts continued for several minutes and escalated into threats to kill, as well as "Get off church and go pick your cotton," and pornographic photos being posted to the Zoom call screen.

“It’s discouraging to say the least. Sunday is kind of a day where we can get away from what we deal with all week,” Minister Glenn told FOX 8.

Minister Glenn said he halted the service and successfully removed the individuals from the Zoom call before resuming. He said that the incident shows racism and bigotry still exist in 2020.

Minister Glenn confirmed to FOX 8 that he filed a report with local police and the screenshots of the incident were reported to Zoom. He said he plans to have a meeting with his congregation to discuss their feelings in relation to the incident.

The Sharpe Road Church of Christ has held virtual services since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
