What an incredibly powerful weekend! We are so grateful to have Pastor Steven back with such an impactful message – “Forever Fearful, Never Scared” that had hundreds of people standing to receive the gift of salvation!
We also announced the launch of the new Elevation Gaston location on September 9 – You can get involved in this new campus now, or get in touch with new campus Pastor Ken Hester for further questions.
Great outreach opportunities are coming up at all our Elevation locations as well. Providence students have a unique event tomorrow night for our strategic outreach partner Pregnancy Resource Center of Charlotte.
The Pregnancy Resource Center is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing compassion, aid, and information to support mothers with unplanned pregnancies. Cherish Rush, an Elevation volunteer and liaison to the Pregnancy Resource Center, says,
“Pregnancy Resource Center is an incredible resource for women who have experienced an unplanned pregnancy. This organization shows the love of Christ to every client who comes through their doors. PRC not only helps with the pregnancy needs of their clients but also have seen many salvations through their ministry. As someone who has experienced an abortion and did not have these resources, I am so grateful that PRC exists and can give women the assistance and guidance I know that they need.”
We have the opportunity to bless this organization by providing more than 500 boxes full of baby items that will be given to mothers in need. Students head to Elevation Matthews on the 17th from 6:30 to 8:30 PM to pack boxes, have fellowship, eat pizza, and bring a friend!
Elevation church will be providing much of the necessary items to go into the gift boxes, but we would love to see our students take the extra step and bring some supplies as well! Some great items to consider bringing include:
- Infant diapers
- Diaper cream
- Infant formula
- Baby blankets
- Baby soap
- Stuffed animal
If you are not a student but still want to be a part of what this ministry is doing, mark your calendar for September 13th. PRC is hosting its “Celebrate Life” Benefit Dinner for its 30th anniversary of helping mothers with unplanned pregnancies. Volunteers will be needed at this celebratory event to serve as ushers, greeters, and clean up teams.
Both of these upcoming events are great ways to get involved with the outreach mission of Elevation Church, and reach our neighbors who are in desperate need. From our students to our empty-nesters we challenge you to come be a part of life change through Elevation Church and the Pregnancy Resource Center!
