This weekend Elevate will be meeting in the gym, but we will be joining the rest of the church to pack 1 MILLION SEEDS PACKS!!!  If you have not heard, as part of Celebration of Hope Willow has set the goal of packing 1 millions seed packs to send to families all over the world, so that they can use the seeds to grow vegetables.  This will allow them to provide for their family or even sell and make some income.  Come and help Elevate do our part at 5:15pm on Saturday, 8:45am or 11am on Sunday.  See you then!

You can learn more about packing seeds HERE!

Before During and After

Before During and After Week 3

December 14/15, 2013

The one and only Scott Rubin will be teaching in the last week of our Before, During and After series.  He will be teaching us that Jesus took an attitude of service everywhere he went and therefore we should do the same especially in the Christmas season.  Jesus served people not because it made him feel better about himself but because it is the way we are called to live.  See you this weekend.

Reminder: Elevate will be in the main service the next two weekends.  Go to the Christmas service with your families!  Click this link for more information about Willow’s Christmas services.  We will be back on January 4th!

Before During and After Week 2

December 7/8, 2013

This weekend, one of Elevate’s very best, Gretchen Dedina will be sharing from Matthew 1:22-23.  She will be using these verses to teach us that during Jesus’ life, not just his birth, Jesus is always with us.  This truth in turn should lead us to understand that, it is the presence of God that we need most this Christmas.  Come ready to dive in as we continue to prepare our hearts for Christmas!  See you soon!

No Elevate on Thanksgiving weekend

November 30/December 1, 2013

Parents and students.  We won’t be having Elevate this weekend.  We encourage you to attend church together during any of Willow’s regularly scheduled 3 weekend services.  Below is the Elevate schedule for the rest of 2013.

Before During and After week 1

November 23/24, 2013

This weekend Elevate kicks off the Christmas season with Matt Vairetta teaching us about the story of God predicting Jesus’ birth before it even happened!  Matt will be teaching out of Isaiah 7:14 and showing us how God’s promise of Jesus being born came about in His timing and in His own unexpected way.  This story gives us good reason to rely on God to come through in everything he says he will do – even though it might not always be when or how we expect him to.  See you guys this weekend at ELEVATE!
