July 13 - July 21
Of all English-speaking countries in the world, Ireland has the lowest percentage of evangelical Christians. Less than 1% of the population (30,000 people) would even call themselves evangelical Christians. Ireland ranks fifth among all European nations in teenage suicide (with the city of Limerick having the highest percentage in Ireland). The secularization of Ireland has brought about many changes over a short period of time and Ireland is certainly not the country it was 20 years ago.
Through all of the brokenness, hope is rising. Elevate church is located in Limerick, Ireland, and is a church plant of Orchard Group that was launched in 2013. Elevate is a group of people that believes that life is an adventure. They are not about mere religion or a specific denomination; they are about introducing people to the adventure that a life with Christ can bring, and then challenging and encouraging them to live a life of significance. They want to be an Irish Church that's known for its service to the city of Limerick. They don't want to be a Church that talks the talk, but a Church that serves people. While in Limerick you will get to interact with the local people and culture in a variety of ways – meeting local University students, prayer walks throughout the city, learning from Elevate church members, and participating in various outreach opportunities on behalf of Elevate.
