Over and Above Giving to Our North American Missions Offering
Please consider giving to our 2019 Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions over and above what you already give to our church. This offering goes directly to the missionaries across the United States and their work directly. You can learn more about this offering here. Planting gospel churches, mobilizing missionaries, and evangelizing the United States is imperative. Together with the 52,000 other churches and congregations of the Southern Baptist Convention, let’s make a difference.
Giving Weekly Through Cross Church
Even though you may be away for Spring Break, make sure you have given through Cross Church upon your return. You can mail your check to 1709 Johnson Road, Springdale, AR 72762, or you can make your contribution online now. You can also sign up for recurring giving, which helps ensure your giving continues even while you are away. Be faithful to honor God each week with at least the first tenth of all God has given to you and your family.
See You Sunday,
