First Offerings is a introductory program to help families begin their journey in Christian stewardship and almsgiving.
The delegates of the 5th Youth Sobor saw a need within our youth to develop a better understanding of stewarship in their lives, communities and the church. First Offerings was one of the ideas they suggested as a way for families to begin this process within the home!
