“I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps.” Psalm 40:1-2

This is Ethan’s 1st year as a part of a Cross-Country Team. His God-sent 6th grade teacher suggested a few sports for him to try, and as a family we thought this might be worth a shot. It has been worth much more than that! From being blessed with a Christan coach/Christian focused team that supports one another, to seeing Ethan push himself individually in order to add to the success of his team as a whole – this sport had been a blessing to us. Perseverance. For Ethan, this word sounds strong with every race and every minute on his path. For Elevate, this word rings true as well as we continue through the remaining steps to open doors this Fall. Much like Ethan’s team, our Board of Directors realizes strongly that we each bring a different gift from God and when we do our part through Him, He will successfully allow us to launch this new page in Anoka County for the Kingdom. What a blessing. Don’t forget our 2nd Annual Bean Bag Tournament THIS SATURDAY! Sign up today!
