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.

2019 & BEYOND
a permanent home
Earlier this year God challenged us with a simple statement, “there is more.” As a result of nothing short of a holy interruption, God moved us out of our downtown location. Now as we anticipate the new home God is preparing for us, we must begin to faithfully set aside resources so we are able to seize the opportunity when it arrives.
Relevant is growing! With almost 80% growth over last year, scripture reminds us that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared…” We have faithful servants who’ve lived sacrificially for the sake of ministry. H4TH will allow us to compensate these staff and resource them for greater impact!
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 our local partners in our community, support the work of the Gospel in our region and increase our support for missions around the world.
a RELEVANT STORy
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.
