Welcome to Summit Students!

 

Summit Students is the youth ministry at Summit Church for students in 6th-12th grade. Here, we hang out, make new friends, and develop our relationship with God and each other through messages, small group time, and serving one another and our community.

Middle School Gatherings

6th – 8th Graders

Join us for food fellowship and games! Starting September 13th there will be a van bringing students directly from school to the church! Students are encouraged to bring friends and bring their Bibles. On September 6th parents are encouraged to come in and drop off their child

The vans will be picking up students up at the following schools: Escalante, Mountain and Miller. If you want your student to be included in a van transportation please fill out this form.

High School Gatherings

Next Steps

Join a Small Group!

Information about our current Small Groups can be found on our Small Groups page.

Attend confirmation!

Confirmation is open to current 8th graders and any high schoolers who may not have done confirmation in the past. Confirmation is a time to dive into what your faith means to you. We ask questions and have conversations about what it looks like to have a relationship with Christ in todays world. We use the Youth Alpha course, which has worked really well in the past. Students feel like they grew closer to the Lord and to each other and mentors feel like they are able to connect with students.

Join us for a mission trip!

“I had so much fun! It was amazing to see God act thought me and others. I will always remember this trip, the people in it, and how we helped others.” – 2022 High School Mission Trip Attendee

Youth Director 

Kelsey Scott has been attending Summit Church since her freshman year at Fort Lewis College in 2015. She was involved in our Rooted College Ministry her entire time at FLC and even continued to serve in leadership roles within Rooted after she graduated in 2019. Kelsey was also a volunteer leader in our youth ministry for several years while she was at FLC, so some of you already know her. She got married to her husband, Nathan, last summer here at Summit Church. Nathan was an intern here at Summit last year and still continues to lead worship here from time to time.
