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).
An Urgent Request for Funding from Pres. Fondow

Dear Minnesota North District Treasurers:
Improve your overall understanding of budgeting with this webinar for pastors and church executives!
Nonprofits and churches alike create budgets for a variety of reasons. The bank might require a budget prior to lending money, your board may require a budget to ensure your planning on spending money is in alignment with your purpose, or you may want a budget to make sure you will have the resources needed to accomplish your purpose.
