Lifeway Church in Rancho Cucamonga is a rapidly growing church in our community. In addition to offering services on Sundays and Wednesdays, we are proud of our community outreach programs for people of all ages such as tutoring, children and youth literacy, storytelling, food assistance, job fairs, health and wellness fairs, building holistic lives and other various human relation programs. Lifeway Church does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities. We currently collaborate with faith based, community and governmental organizations.
Our buildings are available to local and county groups, and we host activities such as Foster Care/Adoption awareness, disaster preparedness, homeless programs, art programs, counseling services, senior citizen gatherings and other various programs within our community. Over the years, we’ve developed a reputation for not only being a religious haven, but also a strong community partner in times of need.
However, we have now outgrown our current facilities and are in need of a new building. So the time has come for us to do some development and we will be constructing The Education Building, it will be a 17,000 sq ft., two story building that will consist of classrooms, administration offices, a kitchen and a multi-purpose room. In anticipation of the future we have developed a master program to accommodate our present need to expand and continue services within in our community. However, we are faced with a timeline within the master plan to begin construction by September 1, 2016.
The Education Building will continue to help us provide much needed services to individuals right here in our local community, surrounding cities and the counties. Each year, the number of people whose lives are affected by the lack of education, food, and work, increases, and our services are needed more and more. It is our mission to provide assistance to every person within our reach. At Lifeway Church, we cannot stand the thought of turning away individuals who are in need simply because we do not have room to accommodate them. Our community and county have come to rely on our services and collaborations. It would be devastating to see thousands of lives being negatively affected should we have to cancel such effective programs that are tangible and recharging to so many. Because of the increasing need for assistance in the local area, Lifeway Church has committed to expanding our facility so that we may fully serve the needs of the communities who are being impacted.
The cost to construct The Education Building is approximately $3,977,057.35. In addition to the amount that Lifeway Church members have contributed thus far, we decided to launch another pledge drive that started June 1, 2016 and will end June 30, 2017 and that will bring in an additional $132,979.34 to go towards The Education Building. We are still in need of $3,284,838.00 and we need your help! We are calling on all ministry partners, business owners, and entrepreneurs to consider joining us in this endeavor by sponsoring a section of the building or simply giving a monetary gift. All sponsors will be recognized through letters, mentions of gratitude, church website, community events and through our programs as a sustaining factor within our cities and counties and as a 501 (c) 3 organization, we will provide a tax receipt for all donations.
We would like to thank you for the time and consideration in sowing a seed that will impact the lives of many people who come through our doors.
Again, we thank you and we are grateful for your thought in becoming a sponsor for The Education Building. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us Monday-Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm at (909) 948-5557.
May God Bless You Always,
Chris A. Esteves, Ph.D., Senior Pastor
