We just marked 8 years as a church, and it is incredible to see all that God has done in and through us! God is closing our last chapter and has begun writing our new chapter as a church. During this pandemic, we have impacted even more lives. And this is just the beginning. Check out the video below for a story of impact:
God is closing our last chapter and has begun writing our new chapter as a church. Over this season, we have seen God clarify and empower us to fulfill our vision to serve our community. We gave away over 425,000 lbs. of food to 4,500 local families in need. And this is just the beginning.
This is where our Heart for the House (HFTH) Miracle Offering comes in. It is a special offering that is over and beyond our regular tithes and offering. This offering, which can be given all at once or over the course of the year enables us to accelerate our vision. This sacrificial offering is an opportunity for you and everyone who calls i5 home to live beyond yourself and go all in to see even more people come to the freeing power of Jesus.
We ask that you pray purposefully, plan strategically, and sacrifice intentionally to be part of this year’s HFTH Miracle Offering. On November 29th you have an opportunity to go first! This is the day we get to give the first seed from our commitment to the HFTH offering. We are confident that God will blow our minds with incredible miracles of life change as we come together to fulfill His vision for us. Remember, we don’t give to a church, we give through a church. It is not the size of the gift that matters, but the size of your heart. Everyone matters. Every gift counts.
We are in this together, and we will change this world for Jesus! Let’s go!

This year, we are looking to raise $250,000 that will go to impacting lives in the following ways:
Currently, we impact our community through regular food and clothing giveaways, mobile showers for the homeless community, and with our mobile food truck. We would like to add a refrigerated truck and another Mobile Shower unit to our fleet through this year's Heart for the House. The refrigerated truck will increase our capacity to store perishable food for our community giveaways.
Through our continued generosity, we care for 27 children in our Kids Center in Kenya. We want to increase our capacity to care for the children by transitioning from renting to building on land we now own. This will enable us to take in more kids and provide better opportunities for them.
Mrs. Faye Scholarship
This scholarship, named in honor of our beloved Mrs. Faye Johnson, will assist i5 ELITE athletes with their college tuition and other financial needs.
We faced a significant dip in giving in the second half of 2020. Still, the pressures of the pandemic could not stop us from living out our mission to impact the world. A portion of this offering will help us recover from the budget shortfalls and allow us to continue to be the hands + feet of Jesus in our communities.
Then I told them about how the gracious hand of God had been on me, and about my conversation with the king. They replied at once, “Yes, let’s rebuild the wall!” So, they began the good work.
This year we can give our entire HFTH offering on November 29th or commit to giving the same amount over four dates: November 29th, 2020, January 10th, May 23rd, and September 12th 2021.
Ask God to tell you what over and beyond sacrifice He wants you to make
Make a financial plan to fulfill your commitment with a Go First Offering on Sunday, November 29, 2020
Be very intentional and specific about what miracle you are believing God for. Our money doesn’t buy us a miracle from God. Our obedience invites God to intervene on our behalf.
