“Golden Cross” is a ministry that reaches out in love to the laity in our Annual Conference who are experiencing financial difficulty due to excessive medical expenses. Through Golden Cross, United Methodists care for members of our local churches in time of emotional stress and financial need. We have served scores of families across our districts. Each one represented someone active in their local church. People just like each of us, who in a moment of struggle found means of grace and love coming from “their” church.
