30 Apr “What are you waiting for?”
More than 1,200 volunteers clearly took Pastor Steven’s Waiting Room week three message to heart: “What are you waiting for?” At all six Elevation locations, you brought SIX TONS of food to be distributed to local food banks. In all, you filled SEVEN local pantries with food. That’s not waiting around – that’s love in action.
And you brought cash gifts, too – at Blakeney – a family drove up with $1k in grocery store gift cards and said, “We’re so inspired by what you’re doing every week, and we’re so glad to have the opportunity to be a part of it.”
This was our grand finale to the Orange Initiative: A promise to our city that we would serve 100,000 hours and give $750,000 to participating strategic partners. We’re excited to release the totals of this unprecedented outreach initiative. Be sure to join us on Mother’s Day for the big reveal.
We’re doing the natural – God’s doing the supernatural. And we get a front-row seat as a city is changed for Jesus. It doesn’t get any better than that. Thank you for being the change we wish to see in the world!
