August 23rd - October 4th, 2017
Are you a new Christian who is a bit overwhelmed with the Bible? Do you wonder why and how to pray, what it means to be a Christian, and what your next steps are? We have developed a group just for you! There are five different sessions and the group meets at Summit Church at 7:00 on Wednesday evenings. They will not meet during the Second Wednesday Worship Experience.
This group is also great for seasoned believers to re-visit the basics of faith! You can start attending at any time. Childcare is provided, but pre-registration is required.

Operation Christmas Child National Collection Week
November 13th - November 20th, 2017
Summit Church is partnering with Samaritan's Purse project Operation Christmas Child. This November, we will serve as the Central Drop-Off Location for shoeboxes that will be distributed to children around the world. The message of Jesus is shared with each child that receives a shoebox, along with other special gifts.
As the Central Drop-Off Location, we will be collecting shoeboxes from 3 counties. Our role is to show each individual who walks through our doors the love of Christ. This is a special opportunity to serve not only individuals in our community, but also children in other countries.
Learn more about Operation Christmas Child at https://www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.

Sign up by Sunday, October 15th!
November 18th - November 19th, 2017
Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. It is the next step after salvation and we look forward to celebrating with you the next time we offer Water Baptism during the worship portion of our services.
