Golden Cross Sunday is first Sunday in May

April 03, 2007

An opportunity to assist those in the Conference hurt by the high cost of health care is coming your way. The Golden Cross Fund provides assistance in the form of a grant to those whose health care has been impacted because of rising care costs, the loss of a job, limited health care or the financial stress of dealing with long term health care costs. Because it is a grant, the recipient is not asked to pay the money back.


The first Sunday in May is recognized as Golden Cross Sunday. Below you will find some helpful information and contacts for information about the Golden Cross Fund.


This fund is administered by the Conference Board of Missions. All requests and recipients’ names are kept confidential.
