Dear Church Family,
What a great year at Cross City! As we look back over the past year, I am incredibly thankful for a church focused on reaching people for Christ. We have increased our focus on inviting our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and those in our community who are the most in need to hear the good news of Jesus Christ, and I love seeing you rise to the challenge! Because of your faithful giving and focus on those around us, we have reached more people this year and are seeing more new families walk through our doors on Sundays. It’s great to see even more of our seats filled—people need to hear the good news of Jesus Christ now more than ever!
2023 was a year of reaching people in new ways. Staff, lay leaders, and committees have partnered to refine processes and better fulfill our mission of reaching all people for Christ. That mission is being made more tangible and attainable through new executable strategies and prayerful plans. The results are always up to God, but we want to do all we can to be faithful stewards.
Now, we look ahead to a big 2024. This budget represents plans to help real people find real hope and experience real life in Christ. I’m so glad we continue to make that our focus, and I am so grateful for you! Your partnership in ministry through service and giving fuels our ministry and vision. Please join me and so many others in these efforts, and let’s continue to reach people together!
What's New and What's Unchanged
The 2024 operating budget reflects an increase of just $150,000 from the 2023 budget. We have seen God’s faithful provision for Cross City through many years, and we believe He will continue to provide. We’re passionate about faithfully using any resources given to fulfill God’s will for this community through our church.
This budget is a prayerful collaboration of staff and lay leaders. The Personnel Committee approves its portion of the budget. The Budget & Finance Committee approves the entire operating budget. The church staff team makes recommendations and provides budget details for reporting and accountability. Transparency, integrity, and stewardship are cornerstones of our financial processes.
