Miracle Sunday Raises $50,000
July 23, 2014
Pastor Scott Allred of Aldersgate United Methodist Church, Chico, prepares to eat broccoli in celebration of a successful Miracle Sunday campaign at the church. Pastor Allred, no lover of broccoli, agreed to eat some of the vegetable if the church was successful in meeting the $50,000 goal for the campaign. The success of the campaign means the church will be able to continue supporting Aldersgate's in-house and outreach ministries.
The three month campaign highlighted the church's "Miracle Ministries" and culminated in an all-church celebration and barbecue on June 8. Pastor Allred ate the broccoli at each of the two church services the following Sunday.
