Yes, if the labormen and materials lien is properly filed, they can force a sale of the church building and real estate to get paid. As I stated before, it is in your best interest to work something out on this.
If they promised in writing to finance the work, you may have an enforceable claim against them to keep thier promise.
Please consult an attorney in your area for specific advice. The attorney can review your paperwork to see if you can enforce the promise to finance the work.
