Loving the City, Serving the City

Another audacious goal from Elevation Church:

Love Charlotte by giving over 5,000 hours in service to the community Feb 13-21

Elevation Church is celebrating its fourth anniversary by loving the city of Charlotte in very tangible ways: a goal of Elevation volunteers giving at least one hour each for a total of 5,000 hours serving in the community.

Pastor Steven Furtick spoke powerfully in worship Sunday from Jeremiah 29:4-7. Some key thoughts:

  • We exist for the good of this city
  • Churches should be known for loving their cities more than any other entity there
  • Love - because God first loved you
  • Wherever you are, God put you there for a purpose

The typical responses of churches?

  • Condemnation
  • Isolation
  • Imitation

Elevation Church is choosing TRANSFORMATION instead.
