Residents like Dobrina Ustun saw the fliers in her neighborhood, and didn’t like what she saw.

“To me, it speaks hate. Unless they come out and put out a statement on exactly what they mean, it sounds like hate,” Ustun said.

Late Wednesday afternoon, Church elders apologized for the “Dangerous ism” label.

“Dangerous-isms was wrong. It was a mistake .It was and is never our desire to disparage any community,” the written statement offered.

The new title of the series is, “Presenting Every Man Perfect in Christ Jesus.”
