2020 Vision and Giving
Oh, if only we could have a 2020 vision into the future! Well, maybe that wouldn’t be such a great thing in practicality, but when it comes to following a budget, predicting spending, paying off debt, it would be a good thing to know what the economy was going to do. When a pandemic hits, all bets are off. So, it goes with the finances of our lives and the life of the church in the year 2020.
Thank you to those of you who continued to pay on your pledge or gave consistently through the last three quarters of the year! Because of your generosity, we have been able to maintain the church staff, pay utilities and even pay down over $200,000 on the principal of the loan held on the Lakeville building. This is significant! This is a blessing!
The last quarter of this year marks the end of our three-year Capital Campaign to further reduce loan debt as well as to make improvements and repairs on our buildings at the Lakeville and Inver Grove Heights campuses. In March of 2021, we will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of CROSSROADS CHURCH! Wouldn't it be a blessing to raise enough funds to eliminate the loan altogether? If you are able to either complete your pledge and give a little extra, or donate if you didn’t pledge, you could be the difference we need to get rid of the loan and free up resources to do more ministry!
Likewise, we have noticed a significant number of persons who donate to the church do so while they are physically present in the building. Because of the Coronavirus and drop in attendance, it goes to follow that giving on Sundays has dropped. Please consider the church in your generosity so we can continue to bless the communities we are in with the support, teachings, counseling, gospel messages, resources, services, and help needed.
With one month to go in 2020, let us encourage you to help us finish strong and prayerfully consider giving generously to help us meet our year-end budget. As a church, we rely on strong December offerings. First, let's join together and pray that God would open the heavens and meet the needs of our church. Second, we challenge you to seek the Lord and give as He directs. We are fully aware that every dollar given to the Lord at CROSSROADS CHURCH represents a step of faith and sacrifice. Because of this, we assure you that, to the very best of our ability, we are good stewards of the Lord's funds while pursuing our mission with faith and passion. We are already beginning to plan for 2021 and looking forward to how we can continue to be a part of the community the Lord has us in.
Thank you, again and God’s blessings,
From the Pastors, staff, and leaders of the CROSSROADS CHURCH Finance Team
