Sunday, February 12, 2012, was a good day! On that day a new church was born and any day a new church is born is a good day.
ELEVATION Church in Loveland, CO is officially underway with weekly gatherings as of 02.12.12! We kicked off our shift to meeting every Sunday with a verse by verse study of Ephesians entitled, “Relationship Rehab.”
Over the next three weeks we are going to examine what God’s Word has to say about;
>How To Make the Most of Your Marriage
>How To Raise Righteous Kids
>How To Be an Exceptional Employee
God was gracious to send us 75 folks to celebrate Jesus with us on our birthday. What a joy to have my Mom there! She reminded me of the phone call I made to her back in the Spring of 2010 when I told her I was stepping out of my stable staff position to go and plant a new church. She asked me where I felt led to plant this church, and at the time I said, “Honestly, I don’t know.”
Eventually God led us to beautiful Loveland, CO. So, for her to be there for our “soft-launch,” was almost more joy than I could stand.
And then, when the room became so full we were scrambling for extra chairs, I felt so much excitement I thought I was about to come out of my skin! One of the Launch Team memebers who moved out here with us to help plant Elevation Church said with tears welling up in her eyes, “It’s really happening.” Indeed…it’s really happening!
