Weekend recap and encourage a friend

What an incredible weekend! It was eGroups spring semester launch and we hope you got connected to a group and are excited about what God will do in your life through CONSTANT CONNECTIONS.

We hope too that you are knocking out your “The Power of Same” John 15 memorization, and that you are getting a lot out of this series.

Remember that Your Success is Only as Sustainable as its Source and that you need a constant to reach the kind of deep-rooted success God wants for you.

Pastor Steven taught us from Romans 15:4 (MSG) “Even if it was written in Scripture long ago, you can be sure it’s written for us. God wants the combination of his steady, constant calling and warm, personal counsel in Scripture to come to characterize us, keeping us alert for whatever he will do next.” And he challenged us to ask the question, “What is my constant?”

If we remain in Jesus (the vine) HE will give us:

A Constant Calling.

Constant Character.

Constant Counsel (connections).

Today’s Monday Sermon Recap photo is of the Jay Rabon family. Jay is our eGroups Pastor at Elevation, and he and his team of staff and volunteers worked hard to make this weekend’s eGroups launch a success. Hundreds of people got connected to groups.

Jay’s wife, Brandi is on our Elevation Outreach advisory team. Next week we’ll get together to go over all the new non-profit applications we received and make recommendations for new partnerships.

Jay and Brandi are an incredible team, and are one of the original families who launched Elevation Church with Pastor Steven and Holly. From the outside looking in, with their beautiful smiles and cheerful, helpful dispositions, you’d never know they were going through a difficult season in their lives.

Their once very active, spunky 10-year-old Addison suffers from two rare medical conditions. You can read details in this local newspaper article.

We are believing in total healing for Addison and we believe her story will bring God glory.

You can give her spirits a boost by voting for her in the “Rare artist 2014″ contest.

Do it. Tell everyone you know about it. You’ll be inspired.

Outreach Rally

Together in 2015 we will become better storytellers. We will “consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,” (Hebrews 10:24) and we will tell the world about the miracles we see all around us. Great evening of vision, worship, and prayer with friends. Our outreach leaders change atmospheres and we are so grateful for their commitment to excellence in everything they do.

LOVE Weekend UPTOWN

Opportunities for our upcoming LOVE Weekend Uptown are filling up quickly. Serve Saturday or Monday with partners like Men’s Shelter of Charlotte, the Relatives, and Ronald McDonald House. Looking forward to starting the year off right in service with YOU!
