Dear Friends:

The Second Mile Club program has been in existence for more than forty-three years and was organized to give people in all the churches an opportunity to assist small churches with building repairs and projects that they cannot manage within their own financial resources.  Second Mile Club assistance could mean the difference in doing or not doing a project and could even mean the survival of some of our churches.

The Second Mile Club has helped churches in our district with everything from new church facilities, termite damage control, parsonage repairs, steeples, restrooms, insulation, painting,  parking lots, electrical repairs, heat and air-conditioning, wiring, roof damage, septic systems, foundation & kitchen repairs, window repairs, etc.

We’re asking that you promote the Second Mile Club by having your Second Mile Club Coordinator, or you or a designated member talk about the work of the Second Mile Club during church service, give out brochures to potential members and be available to answer questions about the program. 

There are two requests for funds each year and shares are typically $25 but any amount will be gratefully accepted.  We’ve enclosed some Second Mile Club Brochures for your convenience.  If you need more, just let us know.  Thank you for helping us increase awareness of this important program which has helped many of our small churches.  Your church may be one of those that have received funds.
