THE SUMMIT YOUTH MINISTRY

Our Purpose

The Summit Youth Ministry exists to help develop middle school and high school students into committed disciples of Jesus Christ.


Our Structure

Two key components provide the backbone of the Summit Youth Ministry:


1. Discipleship (Focus Areas)

  • Bible Knowledge. Grow in your knowledge and understanding of the bible.
  • Commitment. Discover Jesus and fully commit your life to him.
  • Daily Walk. Learn to faithfully walk daily with Jesus and glorify him.
  • Personal Ministry. Learn to serve others with love and compassion.

2. Friendship (Environments)

  • Foyer. Connect with students and adults in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
  • Living Room. Establish friendships, feel a part of the Summit, and begin to trust others with his/her heart.
  • Kitchen Table. Feel safe to deeply trust others and open up your heart without fear of judgment.


We really want all of our students to connect in the Summit.  One of the ways we can help get you connected is by getting to know more about you.  Please fill out a student profile by using the link below.

Winterfest 2021 is February 12-13

Winterfest 2021

Winterfest is February 12th & 13th right here at Alameda! 


Since we're not gathering in Arlington this year, we purchased session videos so that we can have our own Winterfest here in Norman!


The theme this year is "Truth Sessions," and the videos are packed full of great stuff, featuring speakers Josh McDowell, Jeff Walling, and Chris Seidman, along with other content by Daivd Bowden, the Skit Guys, Jared Hall, O'Chancey and songs recorded by United Voice Worship. You will be encouraged by what you see and hear!


Because we're having Winterfest at Alameda this year and not limited on space, we're able to invite parents too! We'd love for all Summit parents to join us for this Winterfest experience.


Cost is $20 for youth students

This includes food, a t-shirt, a special scholarship drawing and all the Winterfest content sent to your email!


Cost is $10 for parents

This includes food and a t-shirt.


Bring your Bible.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday Morning Bible Class (S.M.B.C.) begins at 9:45 am in the Summit Youth room. We dig deep into God's word every Sunday morning. Our hope is that over time every student will learn the story of God in such a way that they can and will share it with everyone they know, at any time. 

We study the Old Testament and the New Testament, discovering more and more about God's covenants with his people. Come join us!

PEAK

PEAK is on Wednesday nights during the school year.


Join us at 6:30 pm on Wednesdays in the Family Life Center! We hang out together before the lesson & worship at 7 pm. At 8 pm, it's time to go home.

So now you know what your teens are listening to but have no idea what the songs are saying? This website is a great way to find out just what those rappers are rhyming. All you need to know is the artist name to look up any song. This website also will usually play the song that goes with the lyrics you are looking up.


Plugged In

This Focus on the Family website could possibly be the best one out there to arm you the parents with information about movies, music, and TV shows. The best part about this site is that they always look for the positive elements in whatever media they are reviewing. It also tells you exactly the amount of language, violence, sexual content, nudity and other questionable content in each movie, show, or album.
