Children worship together, learn who God is, and understand salvation through Jesus Christ by participating in art activities, games, and lesson discussion – all in a fun and inviting way!


Welcome to Summit Kids!

We are so happy to have you worship with us.  Summit Kids is a place where kids ages 3-5th grade are learning about God through discovery, hands on experiences, building relationships, and creating a change of heart – not just retaining Biblical knowledge. We offer childcare during our Saturday service at 5:30pm and our Sunday services at 9:00am and 10:30am. 

Summit Kids are encouraged to:

Love God (Matthew 22:37): Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

Love Others (Matthew 22:39): And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself

Share It (Matthew 28:19-20)Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”




Follow Summit Kids on social media! We post spiritual activities that you can do with your family throughout the week.

Dedication and Baptism

Infant Dedication is when a family dedicates their child to God and the infant is welcomed into the church family. Baptism is when a child makes the decision for themselves that they believe Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior. Every year, Summit Church does a river baptism for all who are interested. This event is typically in August, and we will be posting more information about it on our website this summer. For more information or to sign up for an infant dedication or baptism please click below.

Sophia is the Summit Kids Weekend Coordinator. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, she is now a student at Fort Lewis and is planning on getting her degree in geology with a GIS certificate. In the meantime, she has attended Rooted and Summit, and has loved getting to know the wonderful people there. Sophia loves hiking, fishing, birding, and anything to do with the outdoors. Having the opportunity to work with youth is so exciting for her because children have such a curiosity for the world around them, and they are so eager to learn about God’s love for them.
