The Illinois Great Rivers Conference will celebrate Golden Cross Sunday on May 11.
Envelopes for the special offering have already been mailed. Bulletin inserts may be downloaded from the IGRC website at: www.igrc.org/goldencross.
Proceeds of the offering support conference ministries as they care for God’s Family. The IGRC Golden Cross agencies are: Evenglow Lodge, Sunset Home, United Methodist Village, Wesley Village, pastoral care ministries at Alton Memorial Hospital and Methodist Medical Center of Illinois; Chaddock, Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House, The Baby Fold and United Methodist Children’s Home.
The Golden Cross agencies provide services to more than 30,000 persons per year. More than 2,000 volunteers provide 19,000 hours of service and more than $10 million of benevolent care is provided by these ministries.
The Golden Cross agencies in cooperation with United Voices for Children will have a special luncheon, Caring for God’s Family at noon Friday during Annual Conference. Tickets may be purchased as part of your annual conference registration, which opened April 1 and runs through May 12.
