“From what I see, your church is well on its way to being great! This is the MOST community involved faith group that I have worked with. Thank YOU for all you do.” -Leah Weycker, WeCAN Executive Director
"Thank you for the great service last night. I think that it was one of the best Good Friday services that I have attended."
-Good Friday Service Attender
My husband said very emphatically that this was the best Easter message he has heard in a Sunday worship service."
"My oldest son said he liked MainStreet because he could tell it wasn't fake, and he got good vibes as soon as he walked in the door.' He said he'd like to come more." -MainStreet Mom
"Your service reminded me of a retreat I attended a few years ago...It was life-changing, leading me to relate to Christ's passion in a whole new way. I witnessed some of that same spirit at the Friday service..." -Good Friday Service Attender
"I first gave my life to Christ under a full moon like this 33 years ago...and I met him again tonight.” -Good Friday Service Attender
“A few years ago I went into cardiac arrest, and while unconscious in the ambulance I heard the voice of Jesus telling me, “I’m not taking you home yet, I still have an important task for you to complete.’ Please pray for me as I try to shine the light of Jesus in these apartments so full of hurting, broken people. Pray also for a new companion to fill the hole in my heart from the loss of my husband.... The Lord told me that your church is going to grow rapidly in the days ahead. Keep pressing on and being faithful to the task the Lord has given you. I will be praying for you.” -Anita, woman we served
“I’m not a church person. I believe in God but I don’t believe in organized religion... The church excommunicated one of my family members years ago, but still kept sending them envelopes asking for their money. Churches are only out to get your money.” [Note: This woman came to worship at MainStreet on Easter after we served and invited her!] -Eva, woman we served
“You have no idea how much this cleaning help means to me. Because of my disability, my husband has to do everything -- buy groceries, cook, do laundry, work a full time job -- and the house just never gets cleaned. And I have to sit in the mess everyday all day, and can’t do anything about it. I don’t know how we can thank you enough.” -Lenora, woman we served
“I know folks really appreciate this [community outreach]...and I’m guessing maybe more would get involved down the road. It is a very wonderful thing you are all doing!” -Carolyn, WeCAN Meals-on-Wheels Coordinator
“I just drove by Grandview Middle School on my way home from the band concert and couldn't believe my eyes! The flower beds look amazing! This spring has been so beautiful already, and thanks to your efforts, we can actually see and enjoy the sprouts that tell us summer is right around the corner. On behalf of our staff, students, parents, and myself, please pass along my thanks to your wonderful volunteers. We are so grateful to all of you! -Christine Zachow, Grandview Middle School Principal
“Yesterday you asked everyone who was willing to go meet people and clean houses to step forward. The whole circle stepped forward. I was very proud to be part of a church made up of people like that.... [At Lake Minnetonka Shores] we spent the next hour talking with Lucille. We talked about family and church and read scripture with her. She held my hand the entire time. On the way out of the building [at Lake Minnetonka Shores] Bonnie stopped at the front desk and volunteered to come in and read to people.”
