Firstfruits is where we get to participate in the principle of giving-God-first
with intentional and extravagant generosity
Each year, we come together to stretch our faith by giving above and beyond in support of all we’re believing God for in this next season.
Giving Sunday is when we get to come together with the intention of worshiping and going above and beyond our tithe targeting our generosity towards the year-end campaign

We are excited for the opportunity to honor our pastors on Sunday, June 14th. While honoring pastors is honorable and something PLC looks forward to each year, we know much has changed over the last three months for many people.
Those who have resolved to their traditional way of honoring should continue to do as you have done, however we do want to provide a way for everyone to be a part of this virtual occasion. Maybe its a smile, virtual hug, private expression or public social media post; whatever you choose, just make it special.
Here are 7 ways that your family can honor Pastors Heston & Sharese this weekend:
- Share a public post/photo to your social media; expressing how special they are and perhaps a special moment, message or encounter you had
- Share and upload a personal video message which your leaders will be able to watch this weekend | Upload it here
- Invite someone to church this weekend.
Our pastors get excited about when we invite people to church especially those who are looking to discover their identity.
- Bless them with a love gift.
This weekend is typically the main opportunity each year that individually and collectively we get to sow a seed. This could be of any amount yet should be from the heart | Give Online
- Make a commitment to pray for them weekly for their strength, wisdom support and anointing.
It's tough leading a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-generational church, and combine that with leading during this current season is even tougher. They need our prayers
- Reaffirm your commitment to pursue purpose.
Our pastors want us to pursue the divine callings and opportunities for our lives so what better way to honor them, than to recommit to pursuing Gods purpose for your life
- Finally on Sunday, June 14th at 12:20PM join us on Zoom in our Virtual Lobby as we get to share, smile, laugh, say thank you and even give virtual hugs to the shepherds of the house

This Months Theme
Jesus endured through the pain of the cross so that we would be able to have a forever relationship with God. God gives us the Holy Spirit to empower us to keep going, even when life gets difficult.

Why do we tithe?
The Bible teaches us that the purpose of tithing is to teach you to always put God first in your lives. (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB).
Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in your life.
Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
This July we will be taking a team back to San Ignacio, Belize.
Ever since 2014 we have been able to impact the lives of hundreds of young people and their families; as we share the gospel and help individuals discover greater meaning, purpose and opportunity for their lives.
Belize itself is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere with thousands of needy children and families living in poverty. Along with so many being not having easy access to education there has also been a disturbing uptick in kidnapping and human trafficking. During this Julys Mission Trip we are expecting to serve approximately 450 kids under the age of 13 with meals, activities, teaching, backpacks and care packages.
Other Highlights and Impact include
- Service projects and neighborhood development
- Mentoring and Young Adult Coaching
- A Women's Empowerment Conference
- Local Leadership Development
