“When you have unexpected support like this, there is no other way to describe it—this is a big gift and we are putting it to immediate use,” she said.

Cindy Brown, Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees at South Church, said the gift to Chase Home represents their weekly giving philosophy, which is captured in a mission statement:

“At South Church, we nurture spiritual growth through worship, learning, and community,” she said. “We celebrate the worth and dignity of all people, and we inspire one another to act on our faith in the larger community.

“We are so thankful for South Church and their choice of us as beneficiary,” added Wheeler. “I want all their members to know they have made a difference in the lives of kids and families who need help today.”
