WARNING: You are going to be hearing a lot about love week from me on social media over the next week. Why? Because I love LOVEWeek. I love serving our community with my friends and family. I love being the hands and feet of Jesus without any ulterior motives. If you are a part of Elevation (or if you are not but you live in the area), I want you to be a part. Not just do your part, BE a part.
When we all put our gifts and our passions together we can make a huge difference. Do you like to do yard work? Do you like to build? Do you like senior citizens? Are you passionate about feeding the needy or helping homeless children? There is an opportunity for everyone. Remember, you can go to the LOVEWeek site and search by location, type of event, time of day, and/or family friendly events.
And if you need a little help deciding, over the next week I will be posting opportunities for you to get involved. Here are the top 4 events you can be involved with this Saturday…
If you like to build, tear down, reconstruct, or paint and you live in the Cornelius, Charlotte, or Concord area? Habitat for Humanity has events happening at five locations this Saturday that you can sign up for. Come be a part of the first day of a new home build or renovate an office. This is your chance to put God’s love into action to transform lives and add beauty to your community. Register HERE.
Do you like to party? To start up LOVE Week, we’ll be teaming up with Second Harvest Food Bank to have a packing party at the Uptown area warehouse. Come spend some time with your friends and help supply much needed food to organizations throughout the Charlotte region. To register to help to make sure that food pantries stay stocked throughout the summer and serve those who might otherwise go hungry, click HERE.
Calling all green thumbs and parking lot artists! Your passion for gardening and painting in straight lines is needed at the Ada Jenkins Center to freshen it up before Fall. The Ada Jenkins Center is a new LOVE Week partner added with Elevation’s expansion to Lake Norman and we’re more than excited to be transforming this local non-profit inside and out. Have a hand in creating an inviting environment for students as they enter the next school year by registering HERE.
Want to give a landscape a new look? Jackson Park is a long-time strategic partner that has new energy to help transition families out of homelessness. Thirty volunteers are still needed for this Saturday’s transformational landscaping event. The lawn needs mowing, weeds have taken over play areas, and mulch needs refreshing. Sign up HERE and come out to create for Jackson Park an environment that matches their passion to help families in crisis and restore lives.
We will also have opportunities for you to serve at each of our campuses after the worship experiences all weekend. Make sure that you plan to stay for a bit after! Maybe I will see you out there?
