T’is the season to PRAISE and we continue the momentum of “#52days of Thanks and Praise” by serving this weekend alongside neighbors in need.
It’s the last LOVE Weekend of 2013 at Elevation. We are finishing strong with our Gaston and Toronto locations and we know the potential impact we can make together on December 7th is huge. This time is unique for our church because God we be using our service to simultaneously touch two cities that are countries apart. You won’t want to miss this opportunity. Here’s some of the places you can sign up to volunteer.
Hope 4 Gaston provides basic assistance to families in need. This coming weekend, we will be supporting them as they provide clothing, furniture and children’s toys to families at no cost. In preparation for the Christmas season, they will be hosting a Christmas shopping experience along with a warm meal and lots of love to families who are experiencing hardship during this Christmas season. Whether you’re a professional parker or a whiz at gift-wrapping, there are many areas to serve at this event.
You can sign up to bless a family by helping them build a house for Christmas with Habitat for Humanity Gaston County. Is there a better gift than a home built with love? In order to participate, we ask you to be 16 years or older. So bring your friends, family, or eGroup and construct Christmas together this year.
Hey GTA, this one is for you! We are partnering with Ephraim’s Place to “ReFresh” and paint a few homes. Refresh is a unique program designed to create a strong sense of community, restore local pride and improve the living conditions of We had an awesome time serving with this organization over LOVE Weekend this summer and now we have the opportunity to do that again during the holidays. A simple coat of paint can have the power to show love and give families a new start. Sign up for this event today!
