What is Miracle Sunday?
Miracle Sunday is a one-time giving event where we pray, respond, and celebrate what God is doing in our church. Unlike a traditional funding raising campaign, Miracle Sunday is completed in a concentrated six-week period. This is NOT a commitment or pledge drive. The object is to raise funds and celebrate as a community on December 10th. As a faith community, we are looking to God, who is able to accomplish more than we can ask or imagine, to bless this request abundantly.
What is our desired outcome?
First, we are looking to engage in a spiritual journey to help us break through in new ways to love our neighbor and build relationships with our community. Throughout the next six weeks, you will be challenged to prayerfully consider how you can participate.
Second, we are seeking $60,000 to cover the costs of restoring Parsonage 2 in order to make it liveable, financeable, and sellable. Over the previous year, we have been blessed with a new roof and furnace. These costs were covered by insurance which reduced our overall debt. Improvements to Parsonage 2 include replacing siding & windows, repair damaged or rotted structure, remodel bathroom, etc. Our Trustees are continuing to research options to determine costs for the work.
Third, as a faith community, we are seeking to be good neighbors by improving the value of the property and prepare a place for a new family to begin living in this home. Our hope, a young family will move in and we could invite them to be a part of Main Street Church.
All funds received in the Miracle Sunday offering will go toward Parsonage 2 restoration and/or mortgage pay-down, allowing us to shed our second mortgage saving us approximately $2,000 per month. This is one more step toward financial sustainability for us as a congregation.
What will make Miracle Sunday work?
You! We are inviting you to be a part of this event to help us move closer to financial sustainability as local body of believers called Main Street Church. This is much more than a giving opportunity; it is a prayer-filled spiritual journey. We invite you to come along side us as we pray for a breakthrough moment culminating on Miracle Sunday.
On this journey, we ask you to begin praying about your sacrificial offering, over and above your regular giving. More details will be forthcoming about options to donate via cash, checks, stocks, online, IRA distributions, etc.
Help us transform our community one person at a time, one family at a time as we work to secure the next legacy here at Main Street Church.
Break Through Prayer

Lord, we offer Main Street Church to you! We are your people, this is your church. We come seeking your guidance, your vision, your purpose. Align our will with yours; so that, we are willing to do whatever it takes to carry out your plan to reach one person at a time, one family at a time.
We ask you to help us breakthrough in new ways to love our neighbor and build relationships with all people. Pour out your Holy Spirit on us giving us the vision, courage, and confidence to fulfill your commission in our community and our world. Amen.
