Une fois par an, notre église se réunit lors d'un dimanche spécial pour apporter une offrande qui va au-delà de nos dîmes et offrandes habituelles.
Notre dimanche Un Cœur Pour La Maison est toujours significatif, l’atmosphère de sainteté et de foi est tangible. Les gens prient et préparent, des mois à l’avance, leur don..
Cette offrande miracle nous permet d’être une bénédiction pour les personnes dans le besoin et nous aide à aller de l’avant en prenant des mesures stratégiques pour investir dans l’avenir de nos campus afin que nous puissions bien servir nos villes.
We are entering into our Heart For The House season and it’s an opportunity for us all to accelerate our ability to realize vision.
It is our 18th year from our first service in Paris which we still remember the enthusiasm, the presence of God and sense of future before us. After all these years that sense of future is still very clearly present!
The theme of this year is: We are living stones.
Every stone is unique, and every stone is shaped, formed and able to build something magnificent. Stones that build a foundation, stones to build places of worship and living stones that cry out and give all praise to God.
Through this year’s Heart For The House, I pray that you, as a living stone for God, will realize your important role in being a building block for the Kingdom of God in our world today!
Heart For The House gathers those who are new on this journey and others who have been there for many years. It is a time that we look to see vision advance, bringing strength and provision for campuses, establishing and equipping departments in the life of church, helping us navigate the challenging times, helping us reach out to see people’s lives transformed, making a social impact, and strategically preparing to buy a building to be our permanent home, a church for the generations to come!
Church, we encourage you in considering your part as a living stone this year so that together we can see the vision advance and many transformed lives.

“You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
1 Peter 2:5 (NIV)
I immediately think of Jesus, who is the main stone, and we, His brothers and sisters, are the living stones, His Church, that is to say His body, and Christ the head. The Church is not a stone building that stands still on Sundays. We are the Church, living stones destined to move around the rest of the week to serve our God everywhere. By giving up our time to listen to the sufferings of others and handing them over to Jesus to deal with. By going into homes to visit the sick. By talking about Jesus. By loving others. By simply being like Jesus. Because today’s world needs our Saviour God more than ever. Jesus just wants to be our faithful friend, to have a relationship with us. His faithfulness is unfailing when we confide in Him with an open heart.

“I think that the Church is so crucial in God’s plan. His church, established on Him, Jesus, as the cornerstone. I’m so aware that it’s so easy to get distracted from it being all about Jesus, even in Church. Revelation 2 talks about how the Ephesian church got so much right, but that they forgot their first love. How do we keep a solid foundation as a living stone? We keep Jesus as our first love. Our number one love. And I have a personal responsibility in this, and there is also a corporate responsibility in this. All about Jesus.”
