“Miracle May” Campaign

This is a time of great harvest and what a privilege to be a part of it.
February, 2016 through September, 2016
Our Finance Committee and Church Board started our debt reduction campaign in February, 2016 to eliminate our building debt of $210,000.  Each week testimonies provided encouragement on how God was giving our congregation miracle favors (above our normal tithes and offerings) to help eliminate the building debt.  Our monthly payment of $6,000 was a burden to the church and we took a step of faith that God would help us through our journey to be debt free.  On May 22, 2016, we took our one-time “Miracle May” offering and God blessed us with $136,000!  From June through August we received additional “Miracle May” offerings and continued our monthly payments leaving a total debt of $22,000 in September.  In September, 2016, our debt was completely paid off in 105 days.  PTL!!  We give God all the glory!!
When Pastor Shankle made the announcement, several people were crying, some were praising the Lord, and some were in disbelief, not knowing what to do – cry, shout out, or just sit still.  What an amazing moment to watch God work — Miracles really do happen

         Scot Spalding and Jim fitts burned a copy of the Mortgage and everyone cheered
                     “WE ARE DEBT FREE!!”
       2018 Update:  We paid off our $210,000.00 debt in 105 days and because of God’s faithfulness we have experienced new joy and faith moving through the Church. Our “Miracle” has gone much further than the 2016 Miracle May campaign.  This past year we have built up the church family through prayer, healing and restoring ministries of our Church.  God’s fresh anointing is falling on the obedient Church.  We have been able to build and add more ministries in our church, tithes and offerings have increased, repairs and upgrades have been made to the campus, and our financial situation continues to be very stable.  The Lord has given us another great year and we give Him all the praise and glory!
Challenge to the Church family:  “Continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness” (Colossians 2:6)
