Once again, we are challenging everyone to bring a “First Offering”.
What is a First Fruit offering? The Scripture teaches that everything ‘first’ is holy to God. God taught Israel to bring First Fruits as an offering of the land. It was the first portion of their crops. He promised he would bless them for it. This is a powerful scriptural principle.
Our ‘first’ portion this year will be sown into two parts—designating 1/2 to a local mission, The Prairie Gleaners and 1/2 to a world missions group, One for Israel Ministry. Please pray and ask the Holy Spirit what you should give ‘first.’
Please direct your regular tithe offering into the general fund and any ‘first fruits’ offering please mark on your envelope “First” along with the amount. Then trust God to look after you financially as He has promised.
Local Missions: Prairie Gleaners
Feeding the hungry in the name of Jesus. Prairie Gleaners is a charitable society located just south of Medicine Hat. They seek to help those in need by utilizing unmarketable produce that would otherwise go to waste. They receive produce from very generous greenhouses in Southern Alberta and turn it into a dehydrated vegetable mix that is shipped all across the world to feed the hungry.
