Serve at Summit

Love God | Love Others | Share the Good News

Serving with Summit is a simple, meaningful way to live into our mission to love God, love others, and share the good news. It is also a great way to connect with others and be part of what we are doing and where we are going as a Church. If you call Summit your church home, we encourage you to serve once a month in one of our ministry areas. Not sure where to begin? Please reach out to me! It’s my great joy to help you find the right serving role—a role which will bless you with spiritual growth and bless others with the light of Christ in YOU! You can also contact the Ministry Leaders below to get involved.
