First Fruits Offerings

PROVERBS 3: 9 - 10

"Honour the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops;
 Then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine."

During our recent teachings about "God's Threshing Floor" we are encouraged to acknowledge that everything that we have comes from God in the first place, and out of what He has given us, we can give back to him as a "First Fruits Offering" - before anything else.

In line with this at our 1st Sunday Celebrations - which at the name suggest - is the very first Sunday at the start of each month, we will be providing the opportunity not only to be generous with our normal tithes and offerings, but also to help the Poor & Needy in our community, support the work of our local Christians Against Poverty centre, as well as practically supporting the work of Thurrock Foodbank.

In doing so we are reminded that our God promises to open the floodgates of heaven and bless us both individually and as a Church.
