Golden Cross Ministries

God works through your prayers and support in acts of mercy to bless the lives of individuals at all ages and stages of life. Your 9 Golden Cross ministries are hard at work every day in their settings across our conference, bringing hope and healing to people from the cradle to the grave. Golden Cross Sunday is always the 2nd Sunday in May, Mother’s Day. When you give, your offering is divided equally among all nine ministries. And it is also multiplied because we are stronger and more efficient together. When you support these excellent ministries, God blesses your generosity and will forever change the lives you touch.

Your Golden Cross Ministries serve more than 6,500 individuals each year in benevolent care!
