It is always a great feeling to finish off a Sunday and be able to think about all that I was honored to be a part of when it comes to Elevation. I get so excited that I get to be a part of a movement of God here in Aurora. Today we started our series called the “F-Bomb” and it was quite explosive when it came to dealing with the area of forgiveness in people’s lives. Here are a few of the things that just blew us away:
- We had 7 first time decisions for Jesus Christ.
- Then had the honor to be able to pray for up to 40 people as the share the gift of forgiveness with those in their lives.
- Was honored to have a friend from High school show up with her daughter that I have not seen since I graduated. (Yeah I am old)
- Enjoyed the opportunity to have 8 new families check out Elevation and all that is going on.
- Was able to enjoy an awesome lunch with the awesome volunteers at Elevation as we had our Fall Leadership Community.
- Was told today by the custodian at Dalton that she was listening to message from her office and she said, “I was thinking that this is a message that my friend should hear, but then realized that Jesus was talking to me.”
As we have prepared and prayed the verse that my family and I had all over our house in California has kept me going.
Habakkuk 1:5 (NLT) “The Lord replied, “Look at the nations and be amazed! Watch and be astounded at what I will do! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.”
We believe that we are going to see God do something and amazing through Elevation. Why do we think that? What would cause us to think this for Elevation? We believe this because over the last 8 months we have seen Him do amazing things time and time again. So we are living with the expectancy of what we already have seen. So this weekend we expect to see something amazing as we launch out and start the weekly services of Elevation Christian Church. Come be a part of something amazing, come be a part of something that only God can do. Go to www.elevationcc.com and get the directions to Dalton Elementary so that you can be at one of the two services we are going to offer.
It is so exciting to be able to be writing about our preview service this last weekend. We are in the last week of preparation for the launch of Elevation Christian Church. This was the first time that we were in the school and setting things up and it was just incredible to see the team that we have work together and put everything together.
Here are some things that I saw that was incredible:
- We had a student walk up to the school from her house at 7:00AM to help set-up.
- We were able to see people get in and serve all over the place, when one area was complete they moved to help the others.
- Our children’s team had things so ready that families were able to go and hang out before the service started.
- The first impressions team made a place for people to hang out and the people that were there had a place to relax and get to know each other. Relationships happening.
- The music ministry hustled into place and presented worship in an amazing way.
- We had a man say yes to Jesus. It is awesome to the gospel move in a person’s life.
I am so excited to see what happens next week with our launch service and being able to reach a whole new group of people. I am so blessed to see God bring his team together and do the work that he has called us too.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are to many words to count, we were so blessed to be able to honor the teachers of Dalton Elementary.
Thank you to all the where a part of this, Team Elevation, Walmart, Home Depot, Best Buy, and the Principal of Dalton.
