Share the Joy: Ministry Enhancement Projects
|“Share the Joy: Ministry Enhancement"
In additional regular offerings, Cross of Christ members and organizations like to give to tangible projects that will improve or enhance our multifaceted ministry. A “Share the Joy: Ministry Enhancement” is not meant to cover expenses of regular maintenance items or other budgeted expenses unless proposed by the BOD. Regular maintenance items will be covered in our budget or by our Capital Expense Fund. “Share the Joy: Ministry Enhancements” are enhancements to our overall ministry.
The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few
You may or not realize that our church body is experiencing a shortage of called workers. The Call List that publicizes current pastor, teacher and staff minister vacancies gets longer and longer as churches and school look to fill these openings. We also continue to see more and more opportunities to spread the gospel here and abroad so the need for called workers is growing. While we continue to offer prayers to provide workers for the harvest, we also have an opportunity to support workers who are already preparing for the public ministry.
Last year Cross of Christ had the opportunity to participate in the Martin Luther College Congregational Partner Grant Program
which directly supported 3 Cross of Christ members who were enrolled as Freshman at MLC (Emily Brand, Abby Enstad and Rebecca Figueroa). This year the program is being expanded to help support their sophomore year and MLC will once again match $1000 per student. Last year we met that Share the Joy Ministry enhancement goal in a just few short weeks. This year we would like to expand our support to include other students who are in our worker training system (Josh Enstad - Junior at Martin Luther College, Isaiah Pederson - Sophomore at Luther Preparatory School). Please consider a generous gift today either online, text-to-give 763-703-2552, or through the envelope you will find in the atrium and by the mailboxes.
