They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God.
our heart for the house
…is to see a community of faith that passionately follows jesus, loves across boundaries and makes a tangible difference in our community region and world!
WHAT IS HEART FOR THE HOUSE?
This house is a house of God. But it is more than just a house, it is our home. “Heart for the House” is a special once-a-year offering over our normal tithes and offering. The giving received during Heart for the House is our means of paving a way for the future. It’s about more than the right here, right now.
We’re praying that God will give each of us a deeper love for His house and everything He wants to do in and through us. As a family we want to challenge you to ask God, “What’s my responsibility for Your house? How do you want me to build Your house and make it stronger – so people can learn to passionately follow Jesus love, across boundaries and make a tangible difference in their community region and world?” Here’s what we know – eternity will be forever changed by our commitment to pray and sacrifice to build a home where more people can come and discover that Jesus is relevant.

God is at work at relevant Church!
In the last year, we’ve had over 250 first-time visitors at Relevant.
We’ve been blessed with 70% growth from 2017 - 2018.
This year, we’ve seen people lives transformed as they took their next step with Jesus. More than 100 people decided to make Jesus the Lord of their life, recommit their life to Christ and/or was baptized.
Hosted Spring, Summer, and Fall Relevant small groups creating a place of belonging, community, and spiritual growth.
We actively served Greater GR community through various initiatives like Back to School Giveaway and Friends of GR Park Clean Up.
behold I am doing a new thing and now it springs forth; don’t you perceive it. I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
2019 & BEYOND
We know that our middle/high school students are not the church of tomorrow but they are the church of today! Also our elementary and younger are being shaped at a critical time in their lives to develop a firm foundation of faith. In 2019 we want to increase our ability to serve our children and students! To make sure our kids and students know we value them, we’ll be investing in ReKids/Youth generously.
Relevant is growing! Scripture reminds us that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared…” With growth comes the challenge to increase capacity. H4TH will allow us to develop more leaders and resource them for greater impact as we anticipate MORE in 2019!
God has called Relevant Church to be a church that makes a tangible difference in our community, region and world! This year we want to gain more ground in our impact. We want to increase our partnerships with local organizations in our community, support the work of the Gospel in our region and increase our support for missions around the world.
Don’t underestimate the part you play in building the future of Relevant Church and a legacy that will continue for many years to come. We ask that you prayerfully consider what God is is inviting you to give.
Giving towards Heart for the House does involve going above our usual tithes and offering, so in some cases, people choose to make their H4TH offering in parts over a period of time (ie weekly, every two weeks or monthly until the offering date) rather than as a one time contribution. To make partial offering until the offering day, please submit a pledge card that helps our finance team consolidate the H4TH offering installments.
