Your question is a bit confusing as you say you bought a lot to build a church on. Did you put the lot in your name or the churches. Is the church properly incorporated and have its non-profit tax exempt status confirmed? Are you deeding the church the property? What do you mean when you say "our Church" you just a member or you start the church or on it's Board? What makes you think you can get money back from a church that has gone under make some members individually responsible? This whole situation and transaction needs to be taken to a real estate and/or business/non-profit attorney and likely an accountant for the church to make sure they conveyance/deed/any contract is valid and enforceable under the circumstances of both parties.
