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.


Student Profile


While we can't meet together in person due to COVID-19, we still connect through out the week online.  We have a Zoom Bible class on Sundays at 1 pm, we share a Minecraft Realm, and we have a book club that we call "Inklings." If you would like more information about getting connected in our youth ministry, contact Lee Langdon.

Senior Sunday

Typically this is such an exciting time for families of graduating seniors as they

prepare for the end of senior year celebration activities. Of course, this school year has turned out to be quite different with all of the COVID-19 issues and we are all trying to adapt to the unfortunate, but necessary changes and cancellations. Like other organizations, we have to make changes with our senior events too, but we really don’t want to cancel anything unless we just plain run out of time.


Depending on when we can meet for in-person services again, we plan to still have Senior Sunday as a live celebration, like we have had in years past. If it looks like we won't be able to have services again before the end of June, then we will have a virtual event to honor our high school seniors. 


HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS:

Please fill out this Senior Questionnaire


PARENTS OF HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS:

This means, we still need to collect some information from you that will enable us to prepare for our Senior Video and student introductions, regardless of whether the event will be live or virtual. If you have not received an email that includes the list of things we need from you for Senior Sunday, please contact Joley in the church office as soon as possible. Parents, you can send pictures and audio files by uploading them to the Senior Questionnaire form that your seniors are filling out.


As stated above, we are not sure yet if Senior Sunday will be a live event, or an

online virtual event. The earliest we could possibly hold Senior Sunday

would be May 17th, but it may end up being later than that depending on when the Mayor’s gathering-edicts are changed or lifted. 


Thank you for your help! Let’s make this something special for our graduates!

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.
