House of Neighborly Service

With locations in Loveland and Berthoud – The Life Center is home to non-profit ministries and organizations collaboratively working to strengthen families, change lives, and positively impact our community.


Bent Tree is a huge factor in its success. Thank you for your continued Tithes and Offering. In 2018, 75.5% of monies donated to HNS went directly to programming.  14.8% to administration and 9.7% to fundraising. It is making an even bigger difference during this pandemic to help our community.

Vision Statement
House of Neighborly Service (HNS) is a local Christian faith-based non-profit organization established in 1961 by the Loveland Council of Churches and in 1990 by the Berthoud Council of Churches, with the united vision to faithfully serve the people in our communities.


The HNS vision is to stabilize and strengthen at-risk families, children, youth, seniors and disabled who are experiencing situational crises or the effects of poverty. The programs at HNS encourage self-sufficiency and self-reliance by helping to access and maximize the economic, physical, social, emotional and Spiritual resources available in our community.


By providing a multitude of basic services in one location there is greater opportunity to access valuable resources. Community partnerships create a greater degree of support and establish accountability from those receiving assistance and to our faithful donors.

Mission Statement

House of Neighborly Service assists and advocates for people challenged by the effects of poverty or situational crisis. HNS provides basic need help for today and hope for tomorrow.

Longs Peak Baptist Association

The LPBA seeks to provide a network of cooperation. We endeavor to partner with local churches in Loveland and the surrounding communities. This network of churches leverages the collective resources of each individual congregation.

The LPBA includes several types of ministries that include Cowboy Churches, Multi-Ethnic Churches, Church Plants, and Collegiate Ministries.​


The mission of the Longs Peak Baptist Association is to resource and network churches and ministries together as they make disciples of their world as they fulfill their distinct, God-given vision for carrying out the Great Commission in Northern Colorado. We accomplish this mission by teaming up. 


Our primary passion is seeing God be great in and through His churches and leaders. Our primary value is that we are better together. We believe that more can be accomplished for God’s Kingdom collectively than any one church can do alone.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child gift-filled shoeboxes go to difficult places. From densely populated inner cities to deserts and jungles, local churches are using these gifts to share the Gospel—even where the Name of Jesus has never been heard.


Working with these ministry partners, Samaritan’s Purse aims to follow the Apostle Paul’s example and preach Christ where He is not yet known (Romans 15:20-21). Together, despite formidable challenges, the Lord is opening doors for us to deliver Good News and great joy to children in need around the world!



The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
