In 2014, we celebrated the 125th anniversary of the CNH District Church Extension Fund and walked through the histories of many of our district churches. Evident in these stories, is God’s faithfulness in working through our congregations to demonstrate the love of Christ in their communities.

Through these 125 years, church extension has played a vital role in the growth of the church. This growth provided the opportunity for more people in a wider area to hear the Gospel and come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior. Church extension is really “church People” extension as the faithful members of our congregations make it possible for others to know the Gospel. Through it all, one constant remains. God is good all the time.

As we look to the future, we at CEF continue to look for new and creative ways to allow our investors to be involved in the changing way we as a Synod are “doing” church. Through mission loans and short term mission trips, new generations of people are hearing about and coming to faith in Christ. And through it all, one constant remains, God is good all the time.

We are so appreciative to our loyal investors who make church extension possible in the CNH District. May you have a blessed and healthy 2015.
