C.R.O.S.S. Appeal Sunday

September 14th has been designated in the Church Year Calendar as being “Holy Cross Day.”  On Sunday, September 17, we pause to thank our gracious Lord for the gift of Christian Day School ministries in our District and their efforts to provide a Christ-centered education to children beneath the cross.  To that end, our Minnesota North District gathered in convention has also initiated the C.R.O.S.S. Appeal (Congregations Reaching Out to Support Schools).  Gifts to this appeal are divided equally among the seven Christian Day School ministries in our District and is used to strengthen our schools (gifts are not used to pay normal operational costs).
