2 1/2 years ago, our church had a goal to serve 10,000 hours during our first LOVE week. Isn’t it amazing what God can do when a group of people unite under one vision? This year together, we served 58,720 hours in the US and Canada!!!

420,00 meals packaged for distribution to malnourished children in the US and around the world

6 Habitat home construction sites

500 school uniforms collected for homeless children

3,000 backpacks assembled for under resourced children

1,500 shoe boxes packaged for Operation Christmas Child

6 trucks of clothing donated

514 units of blood given, impacting up to 1,542 lives

Over $400,000 given away because of the generous givers at Elevation Church

And perhaps my favorite number, 3,664 hours served by kids. How exciting is it to know that we are raising up a generation of kids who love to serve others in need.

The best part is, the love doesn’t stop with LOVE week. There are so many ways you can get involved on an ongoing basis with your kids, your spouse, your eGroup, and more. Check out ElevationOutreach.com for ongoing opportunities.

I’ll leave you with a picture of my kids last Sunday, excited to go to Ekidz to turn in their LOVE week logs and collections. Have a great weekend!!
