On Sunday, April 28th Pastor Chan announced the launch of First Fruits Food Ministry, an exciting New Ministry here at The Ridge.  The centerpiece of this ministry is a full commercial kitchen…..ON WHEELS!  Under the leadership of Gina Huff, and the support of Ridge volunteers, First Fruits will utilize this food trailer as a means to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those in and around Fannin County.

We will start by delivering hot meals (and in the near future boxes of food).  In meeting these basic needs we can then begin to build relationships that will enable us to share the Gospel, make disciples and offer counseling that will help these families and individuals break the cycle of poverty. According to the First Fruits Director, Gina Huff, our initial plans are to utilize the food trailer both here at The Ridge and in the Copperhill area.

Volunteers, prayer and financial support are needed.  Anyone who is interested in this can sign up to receive information by going to www.theridge.cc/food and share your first and last name and your preferred e-mail.  You can also go directly to theridge.cc/firstfruits for updates, information and opportunities to communicate with First Fruits Ministry.

The Lord has surely blessed The Ridge and has called us to love our neighbors and make a difference. First Fruits is designed to do just that.

Proverbs 3:9 – Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the first fruits of all your crops;

Galatians 5:14 – For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this command; “Love your neighbor as yourself”.
