Elevation is showing some serious love this week in the city of Charlotte. Love Week kicked off on Saturday, February 13 and ends Sunday, February 21. The call to action was simple – to see our church commit to serve 5,000 hours of community service in our city. 5,000 people serving just 1 hour of their time. Our volunteers responded to the vision and have stepped up in a big way.
As of Thursday morning, 4,917 hours have been served since Saturday!
Some of the outreach opportunities have included: sorting clothes at Crisis Assistance Ministry, making 11,558 sandwiches for Operation Sandwich, sorting over 5,300 pairs of shoes for Samaritan’s Feet, building a soccer field for Jackson Park Ministries, serving breakfast at the Charlotte Rescue Mission, reading to children at Piney Grove Elementary School, adopting a teen mom with Safe Journey, and the list continues.
Elevation, we are well on our way to breaking through the goal of 5,000 hours. There is still much to do, so find out more and register here. Let’s finish strong as we continue to transform our city with the love of Jesus.
