Celebrate and Anticipate

One of the things we love to say about our culture at Elevation is that we “work hard and play hard.” We believe it’s important to both CELEBRATE what God has done and ANTICIPATE what his word says he will do.

Jesus was a joy-bringer. He invites us to rejoice in every moment because every moment is a gift. Even the muddy, messy moments of life.

Today, let’s decide together be joy-bringers. We can change atmospheres when we choose joy.

Pray with us: God, forgive us for our melancholy, complaining attitudes. Help us change our mindsets. Help us see our situations the way you see them. Help us to celebrate all you’ve done as we anticipate what you will do. Help us make a decision today to love the mud.

Gratitude – 94 days to LOVE Week 2015

On this throwback Thursday we remind ourselves of God’s faithfulness from SURROUND 2014. We saw what God was doing through our outreach partner One7 and we wanted to play a bigger role. We pledged $250k to support upcoming expansion there. Here’s a look back at that Thanksgiving 2014 weekend message.

We are 94 days to LOVE Week 2015 and we are counting down with a prayer each day. Today we’re praying our hearts will be filled with GRATITUDE.

Pray with us: God, we ARE so thankful for what we get to be a part of in our church. Forgive us, Jesus when we get so caught up in our own messes that we forget to look up and thank you for our lives, our families, and our partnerships. Help us this week to get out and love someone else in your name so we can be reminded of your goodness and mercy in our own lives. Help us continue to prepare well in the days leading up to LOVE Week. We choose today to be thankful, we praise you, we love you, amen.
