During the current COVID-19 pandemic, the primary concern globally is the wellbeing of everyone and running at a close second is the concern of keeping finances strong for everyone. Our government has made several commitments to assist individuals, charities and corporations, which are presented below. In this unprecedented time in history, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing possibly the greatest window of opportunity for every Christian and the church in our lifetime, to stand together financially to fuel God’s kingdom-efforts around the world in helping as many as possible in this time of physical and spiritual need. Below you will find some very helpful ideas for your church to strengthen finances.
As a District Network, the BCYD team is committing to bringing you an ever-growing list of creative ideas to help you keep your finances strong. Each day when we learn of more ideas, we will commit to including them on our resources page. Please check this link daily for more great ideas.

The whirlwind of ministry just changed, and with each passing day, the uncertainty seems to increase.
We're with you.
As church leaders, we're in uncharted territory—for this generation, at least—but the Church has withstood and thrived in times of persecution and plague, panic and need.
It's very likely our churches are going to experience the first Easter Sunday where we are not able to gather together collectively.
How can we be creative in planning for dispersed but still shared experiences? Join us as we imagine how our Easter gatherings could go far beyond a spectacle to watch to engage people both inside and outside our church families and outside the faith.
In this free webinar, Tony Morgan will host communications specialist, Kem Meyer, as well as Amy Anderson and Sean Bublitz from The Unstuck Group’s team for a community conversation about how churches can prepare for this year's unique Easter service.
Join us for an hour on Thursday, March 26 at 1 p.m. EST for a free webinar.
