Mother’s Day, May 13 is fast approaching as is Golden Cross Sunday, an approved Tennessee Annual Conference Special Sunday with offering. Golden Cross Sunday has been a Mother’s Day tradition in Tennessee Conference churches for almost 50 years.
Golden Cross Sunday has had a different purpose for the offering—75% of the offering goes to the Golden Cross Foundation for the expansion of older adult ministries in the Tennessee Conference. The other 25% of the offering goes to the Conference Health & Welfare Committee\Disabilities Committee.
The Golden Cross Foundation is self-funded without conference apportionment. Additionally the total offering for the Golden Cross Foundation will be matched by a generous donor dollar for dollar. Will you share the importance of Golden Cross Sunday with your church members?
