The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

By December 10, 2014 Uncategorized No Comments

Hey Elevate!

We had such an amazing launch to our Christmas series Fear Not that we wanted to share so you could celebrate with us!  On Sunday we saw 55 people stand and make a decision to place all of their trust in Jesus for for the forgiveness of sins — past, present, and future!  The simple message of Christmas is not only GOOD NEWS, it’s life-changing news!

 I also want to remind you about a few BIG things in preparation for the next few weeks…
NUMBER 1. This Sunday we will be tackling the reality that for many people this time of year is not filled with joy, but with stress, depression and anxiety. So how do we discover and uncover that peace and joy in our lives during Christmas?NUMBER 2. A Merry Gem City Christmas is going to be the most incredible Christmas experience at Elevate Church to date! Start planning now which service you will attend. And if you want a seat, get there early!

NUMBER 3. Volunteer during our Gem City Christmas services.  We are looking for more hands to help us, park cars, start fires (contained of course), welcome guests, make hot chocolate, set up and tear down, etc. If you would like to help make Gem City Christmas an unbelievable family experience you can sign up at

Be by volunteering at one of our amazing weekend worship experiences.
Invite someone with you to experience the goodness of Christ at Christmastime.
Invest by giving something special toward our Step Up campaign.

Can’t wait to see all that God will do in your life and in our city this Christmas season!
