Hello again, my friends! After a small hiatus, I’m back with this week’s sermon notes from Elevation Church. Pastor Steven Furtick gave a message titled Bent Knees Break Chains.

Remember that you don’t need to be in Charlotte to be a part of Elevation’s ministry – head to to learn how to join an online volunteer team or an eGroup.

Also – remember that these are not my own thoughts, just the notes I took while Pastor Steven was speaking. You’ll need some context – click here to watch Bent Knees Break Chains on YouTube. Bible verses are linked as well so you can click those to read.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today. I appreciate you. 🏝
