The Journey thus far | for such a time as this…

January, 2012

Having just completed our 5th and final preview service it is appropriate to reflect a bit on what God is doing and has done. We hit the ground running back in July of 2011 with our very first outreach effort to the city of Loveland the week after we arrived. Through our, “Kids Week sports camp” we were able to impact the lives of roughly 50 children from 25 families with the love of God and the truth of the gospel. Oh Yeah, we also had some super fun times playing sports, making crafts, and eating snacks!

We started met monthly for worship in October, November, December, and even threw in a gathering on Christmas Eve! Each service was led by a different worship leader, which made the Elevation church experience kinda like a box of chocolates, “You never know what you’re gonna get!” The best news of all is that 3 adults have turned in Response Cards indicating their desire to begin a faith relationship with Jesus Christ. Hooray!

As we rounded into the new year, we served the community with a Teacher’s Appreciation Breakfast at the High School where we meet, and a Gas Buy-Down just down the street [I'm a poet and didn't even know it]! We’ve had a blast blessing our community with the love of God expressed in practical ways!

The latest development is that we have opened up our missional communities [we call them Life Groups] to our congregation. In doing so we have instantly tripled our small group attendance and drastically increased our relational connectivity and our serving capacity. Life Groups represent the place in our church where faith-filled disciples of Jesus are developed.

Epilog | As we have come to the place of being just days away from launching into weekly services, we couldn’t be happier with what God is doing through the passionate Christ followers of ELEVATION Church!
