Our journey began in ...
Pastors and Board of Directors unamiously voted to start a strategic campaign to pay down our mortgage principal to allow us to redirect funds to expand our ministries and community activities.
At SunCoast MCC's 25th Anniversary, we announced the campaign with the
goal of raising $130K.
A team involving Kathy Hanas (Vice Moderator), Dorothy Bays, Jack Hutter, Liz Bisordi (consultant) and Rev. Nancy Wilson began the outreach efforts.
While COVID-19 interrupted some of our capital campaign outreach efforts, it did not deter our members, friends and families with making generous donations.
We were well on our way to meeting our goal with over $50K collected.
We mailed letters, emailed announcements in

Dear SunCoast friends and family,
We hope and pray that this letter finds you healthy and managing through these turbulent and challenging times. The good news is SunCoast MCC, now in our 25
year, continues to be
the church alive
! While we haven’t met in person since early March, SunCoaster’s have embraced this transition as an opportunity for new ways of being connected, from our weekly on-line worship services, to virtually doing ministry, holding classes and doing outreach!
Earlier this year, pre-Covid 19, we launched SunCoast MCC’s Capital Campaign designed to pay down our mortgage principal and shore up our Pillars’ mortgage program, as we prepare to refinance the mortgage this summer. To date, 73 people have responded, with over
in cash and pledges, which is more than ½ of our goal of $130,000. Reaching the goal will allow us to refinance our mortgage at below $500,000 and build a cushion for the monthly mortgage payments so we can do more ministry. W
e extend a personal and special invitation for you to be part of this vital Campaign!
SunCoast MCC’s work is important. We have “a heavenly call,” as the scriptures say, to share the unconditional love of Jesus in an unjust and hurting world. We embrace our special call to LGBTQ families, our allies and all in the margins who are still not welcome in so many churches.
