Living the crazy life that God has given me!

FIVE things to do to start the year off RIGHT!

Here are five things that you can do to start your year off right when it comes to being a team member at Elevation Christian Church. Each one of them will help us accomplish our mission statement: “Develop relational environments where people can become followers of Jesus.”

#5 Set-up Online Giving

As you prepare and plan for this coming year when it comes to your finances get your online giving set-up.  I pray that each and everyone of you has set some financial goals that are based in what God wants for you and your family. So make your tithe to the church one of the first things that is taken care of this month.  You can get it started in CCB through your login and if you don’t have a login just go to the Community tab on the website and you can ask for one.

#4 Join a Community Group 

In the coming weeks we are going to be talking about the importance of having a community of people around you as you walk through life.  So why not this weekend make it a priority to get signed up for a community group at the Guest Services booth.  It is as easy as picking what night works best for you and your family then getting your name on the Community Group card at the booth. Then the leader will get in touch with you and make sure you are ready to do life with others.

#3 Learn to Laugh

I know that you might think that this is a strange thing to put in this list. But I believe that if we were to live life more in the joy of being a child of God then we wouldn’t be as stressed out.  So learn to laugh at the things that are going on in your life and know that there is a Father that loves you in a huge way and is there with you each step.  Plus, they say that laughing actually extends your life that means my wife is going to live a long time. (Insert Laugh)

#2 Get to know someone NEW

We are so excited to share with you that on Christmas Eve that we had our largest attended service ever. So that will mean that we will see more and more new people attending our services over the next couple of weeks.  Make sure that you take the time to stop and talk to someone new invite them to get a cup of coffee and some cookies in the E-Lounge during the gatherings. Who knows you might even get in a Community Group together.

#1 Learn that WE ARE . . .  means something to us all

This month WE ARE going through a series called WE ARE. It is a series that is going to get us focused again on what is important to Elevation.  It is a series that is going to push us each to take next steps when it comes to our walks with Jesus Christ.  So I am asking you to take the time to see what WE ARE means to you and what God is calling you to do next.  Because WE ARE a movement of Jesus Christ and WE ARE not going to sit back and wait anymore.
