Elevation Church - Uptown Christmas 2009



This is the first of a few "better late than never" posts, as I'm still playing catch up from 2009. I'm pushing through - it WILL get done. :)

First up - Elevation Church's Uptown Christmas at Belk Theater. The four services were nothing short of amazing - lasers were fired, drums came down from the ceiling, snow fell from above...and lives were changed.

If you weren't able to attend Elevation's Christmas Eve this year, you simply must get yourself to one in 2010.













Over the course of four services, there were 8,000 (!) people in attendance. It was truly an incredible sight to see when looking over the crowd.













Pastor Steven Furtick

I'm pretty bad about scrolling quickly through blog reader and not ever going to blog's to comment but after seeing these I had to come tell you how amazing they are. Every last one of them. It really makes me want to go there and isn't that the purpose of church event photography?!?! What an incredible way to serve the Lord!
Amazing job!
