We manage a listing for a client that has had their GMB photo hi-jacked by a similarly named organization.

Hi Tulsa

This could be a hijacking or it could also be Google getting confused. 

If you don't want that image displaying, the best thing to do is report it.

The image you're talking about isn't showing all the time;  as you can see below I get a different image.



If you get the other church  logo displaying on the search results page, you can fix it by:

Scroll through these images until you find one(s) not relevant to you.
Click on that image and it will appear on the right side of the display.

In the upper right hand corner you'll see a little flag, and when you hover over it, it'll say "report a problem"

Click on the flag and the screen will change again to a longer form where you can select "This photo is irrelevant to this business" and enter an email address.  It will be helpful if the email address is the same domain as the churches domain. For example "info @
