Following the rebuilding of Jerusalem’s city walls, Nehemiah leads the people in an act of thanksgiving, praise and dedication. Nehemiah 12:43 says ‘And on that day they offered great sacrifices, rejoicing because God had given them great joy...The sound of rejoicing in Jerusalem could be heard far away’.
This year’s Rise and Build is called ‘A Year of Thanksgiving’ and the offering is being designated as a thanksgiving offering. Rather than the giving being allocated to specific projects, the Vision Core Team are encouraging the whole church to bring a sacrificial offering of thanks and praise to God who has sustained, protected and strengthened us over these past 12 months. The Vision Core Team will then designate this offering for use across the church according to our vision and mission
We want to thank you for your generosity to previous Rise and Build offerings and we are asking every partner in Alive to prayerfully consider what they can give, as part of our year of thanksgiving. Your contribution to this year’s praise offering will make a significant investment into the future ministry of all our Alive locations, and allow us to continue our commitments in each location.
Last year we gave £124,000, this year we are believing that we will exceed this.
