In January we begin an important conversation about our 2022 vision for the next missional season of connecting people to Jesus and one another at Elevate Church. Where do we start? With 21 days of praying together! Patterned on the New Testament Church in the book of Acts, we will lay a foundation of prayer before moving forward. We will pray for ourselves, our church family, our leadership, and the forward vision and impact of Elevate Church. We will praise God for who He is, thank Jesus for what He has done, and prophetically declare his will over our lives. Our goal is to learn how to pray and fast according to the word.

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say: “‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come." LUKE 11:1-2

BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE

The exercise of spiritual warfare: What is it? Do you need special training? Do we need to confront evil or does God do that for us? How do we relate as believers to Satan and demons? In The Beginner's Guide to Spiritual Warfare, Neil Anderson and Timothy Warner provide an overview of the battle between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness, which affects every one of us. First, we need to know who we are in Christ. And to help apply the victory Christ won over the enemy, the book gives basic practical instruction for obtaining ongoing victory in daily life. Topics covered include: having a biblical worldview, knowing which God I serve, giving up my reluctance to be a warrior, and becoming fit for battle. Here's how to have confidence in God that the battle has already been won, and know how to stand firm in your faith.

 

AWAKENING

A New Approach to Faith, Fasting, and Spiritual Freedom

 

Awakening helps you stir up your slumbering soul.  You’ll discover how to break out of your season of dryness or get off to a great start either in the New Year or the next season in life. Take your faith-walk from a “going through the motions” or “have to” mindset to the stimulating, fresh “want to” experience enjoying God’s presence—24/7. 

 

AUTHENTIC

Developing the Disciplines of a Sincere Faith

 

Has complacency crept into your life?

It doesn’t just happen overnight. Drifting into complacency is a long, drawn-out journey away from God’s will for your life and toward a two-faced existence. How do you know when your inner self-has deteriorated when you've become an expert at presenting a faithful-looking facade? Hold up the mirror of God's Word and take a good look.
