Cross Roads Church Narrative Budget 2018

 

Operating Budget

The leadership of Cross Roads Church has constructed a challenging financial plan that is aligned with and supports additional steps in pursuit of our God-honoring vision - “living together… beyond ourselves,” a vision that is accomplished as we make disciples of Christ through our process of Worshiping God, Serving the world, and Connecting with others. We invite you to join us in this journey.

Worshiping God

When Jesus was asked, “what is the greatest commandment?”, he replied with “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. Our desire is to help people express their love for God by worshipping him in their everyday life. The various ministries of Cross Roads Church exist to help people live a life of worship and growth. Our weekly congregational gatherings to celebrate our Creator are designed to be friendly and welcoming times that allow us to encounter God and clearly hear from Him, leading to life change and genuine worship. Our worship teams work diligently to this end and give God their best each week, striving for excellence in sound and video presentation. Our website is an integral part of our worship ministry because many of our guests visit it prior to joining us for a Sunday morning worship service.

Serving the World

We seek to help people move from being observers to transformed and thus active participants who serve the Master by serving the world, both locally and globally. We have an active team of volunteers who serve faithfully both inside the walls of Cross Roads and beyond. We will continue to challenge and equip our people to find a place where they can use and develop their God-given talents. Our outreach programs provide us the opportunity to share God’s love in practical ways and are our fastest growing ministries. Our commitment to serving the spiritual and physical needs of others is seen in our support of the Brethren in Christ Church’s Common Ministries, our local benevolence ministry and a growing number of missionaries.

  • Budget $280,832.00
  • Percentage of total operating budget ~ 35%

Connecting with Others

Spiritual growth does not happen in a vacuum, but rather as we interact with others in smaller informal settings that create an environment where transparency and growth can occur. We pursue this understanding of how true disciples are developed in our children, youth and adult ministries.

  • Budget $284,834.00
  • Percentage of total operating budget ~ 36%

Our total operating budget for 2018 is $793,937.00.
