HELLO Loveland!

We rolled into Loveland at midnight on July 17. We traveled 1,320 miles across MIssissippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas before reaching the promised land…Colorado!

After unpacking the moving truck on Sunday [Thanks again Caleb, Marshall, & Luke], we had one week to prepare for our inaugural outreach effort in our new community; Kids Week 2011. Together with a team of 40 Students and Adults from Durant, OK, we hosted 2 sports camps at 2 locations simultaneously, from July 25-28th.

We offered the 25-30 kids who attended Kids Week their choice of tracks; Soccer, Basketball, T-Ball, or crafts. The most important time every day was the Truth Track where we taught God’s truth about God’s Creation/ Our Rebellion/ God’s Rescue/ and Ultimate Restoration. We built amazing relationships with the children and their parents throughout the week. Kids Week wrapped up with celebration parties for families that included Inflatables, sno cones, cotton candy, hot dogs, burgers, games, free give-aways, and an invitation to join the journey of planting ELEVATION Church.

The desired outcome going in to Kids Week was to build a few solid relationships. We had encouraging conversations with 2-3 families who have an interest in connecting with ELEVATION church as we form our Launch Team. Plus, at the South location, Courtney got asked to babysit 2 sisters who attended all week. At the North location, Sergei and Sarah received an invitation to dinner at the home of a couple who we are pretty sure have yet to trust Christ. Mission Accomplished!

You can follow our progress at elevationlife.co. In the meantime, please take a few minutes to pray for the formation of ELEVATION Church in Loveland, Colorado. Thanks!
