Throwback Thursday to February 2013 when Elevation Outreach travelled to East Africa to capture some of the stories of impact we’re making together as a church through our generosity and service.
This week, Elevation volunteers returned to see our giving in action. Pastor Steven and our entire church prayed for the team during the “Power of Same” week 5 worship experience. We look forward to hearing about how the work of our partners Bless Back Worldwide and Sports Outreach Institute is changing lives for people in Kampala, Uganda.
Here’s a clip from the 2013 documentary.
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.
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 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.
