What is HEART FOR THE HOUSE?
Heart for the House is an opportunity for
everyone who considers Life Church their home church to give above and beyond their normal tithes and offerings. Heart for the House is not about equal giving, but equal sacrifice. We believe that as everyone participates, God will use our collective obedience to accomplish His purposes.
We will celebrate Heart for the House quarterly but
gifts may be given weekly, monthly or annually and designated to the location and/or the project of your choice, with ten percent of all proceeds marked for local and global missions.
One house many rooms
What we do in one room benefits the whole house. As we work together, each doing our specific part, we believe God will accomplish MORE in and through us this year. This year, Heart for the House will be used to fund these specific initiatives:
It’s our desire to have a greater footprint in the city of Bethlehem. To have a permanent place where we can gather, share meals together and grow together in our groups; where people can walk through the doors and find hope and assistance.
This will allow us to welcome more people home at our Nazareth and Macungie locations, and accommodate their parking needs as our church family continues to grow.
As we continue to follow our mission to take church to people and launch new campuses, getting involved in our communities, we’re bringing Life Church to Easton because we have a heart for the City.
We are in desperate need for transportation for our college students, youth and those in our urban cores who can’t get to church. These vans will allow many the opportunity to experience time in the House.
“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine.”
PRAYER OVER OUR HOUSE
As we launch into this new season, we are believing there is more for you, your family and our House. As your Senior Pastors, we are beyond grateful that you are a part of our family. At Life Church, we believe we are stronger together. We ask that you pray this prayer along with us as we all continue the important work God started within Life Church 28 years ago. The best is yet to come.
When we were far away from you, you pursued us and welcomed us home. You made us your sons and your daughters, giving us a family of faith—a place where we can know and be known—love and be loved—serve and be served.We declare that we devote ourselves to your purposes in this world, through
We declare that we as Life Church will be therevolutionary,energy-expan- sive, prevailing church, always on the offense! To bring light into darkness, hope into despair, release for those who are captive, and freedom for those who are oppressed.
By your Spirit, make us one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in nal victory. Through your Son Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty Father, now and forever. Amen
THERE IS MUCH MORE!

Pastors Randy and Maribel Landis
Founding and Senior Pastors
We are so grateful for every person who has brought a sacrificial offering that will enable us to be in a place of strength for this new season in the life of our church. As we all prayerfully consider the part we will play, we are believing each part will ultimately contribute to an unusual miracle!
We love and appreciate you!
