Christmas 2011 | The Update

December, 2010

Merry Christmas’s from the McKinley’s!  We hope this Christmas finds you loving the LORD and loving the life that He makes possible.  Jesus invented Christmas.  So, our sincere desire is that your celebration of the holiday would include acknowledging the one known as Jesus, the Savior, who is Christ the LORD [Luke 2:11].

Here is our 2011 Christmas Card picture showing how grown-up the McKids have become. My girls get more beautiful every year, and my boys more handsome. And after growing 6 inches in the last 18 months, my youngest is now the tallest!

Last year at this time we still did not have a location nailed down regarding where God wanted us to plant a church. What a difference a year makes! This year we will celebrate our family’s first Colorado Christmas and due to the 8 inches of snow that fell on 12/21 it will be a white one!

I’m encouraged by what God is doing to establish ELEVATION Church in Loveland, CO.  A solid Launch Team is gathering around the vision “to see people far from God filled with new life in Christ.” We have held three “monthly preview services” so far and have seen 50 or more folks gather with us each time for worship and encouragement from God’s Word.  The best news is that one young man has placed his faith in Jesus for salvation, and 2 others are considering baptism. Yayyy God!  If you are ever in the Loveland area we would love to have you join us at one of our worship gatherings [More information and directions]. We are also growing to love our new community. What a joy it is to make friends as well as reach out to total strangers as we bless our city with practical expressions of the love of Jesus.  As we round the calendar into the new year we are really looking forward to “birthing” 3 new Life Groups to open connection points to dozens of folks seeking deeper levels of relational connection and discipleship.

Keep up with all the latest at, or

Until ALL Have Heard,

Lead Pastor // ELEVATION Church
