Invite some people and join us this weekend for Friendship Sunday at Summit! It is a going to be a great morning and a perfect time to welcome someone new.
Jesus taught a parable about a banquet in John 14 where a man threw a party and had a bunch of no-shows. He told his servants to “Go out into the country lanes and behind the hedges and urge anyone you find to come, so that the house will be full.” (v. 23) Here at Summit we take to heart Jesus’ call to invite and welcome new people beyond our walls!
It will be a fun day with food, bounce houses and activities following both worship services. A crew of guys will grill hamburgers & hot dogs… and there will even be pulled pork! Rain or shine, we are ready to welcome our community on campus this Sunday.
We will kick off a new series called “My Story” that will share how the significance of decisions today shape the story God writes in our lives tomorrow. My prayer is that is that it will help your friends (and each of us) listen to God’s voice and have some great stories to tell this coming year.
Finally, as an extra incentive to bring your friends, there will be a special drawing to win a Family Pass (2 adults/2 children) to Disneyland. Anyone who brings a friend as well as their guest is eligible to win!
More than ever, people look for recommendations from someone they know. Your invitation will often mean more than you realize… Take the opportunity this week to reach out to someone in person, use the “invite a friend” link on the Summit website or do whatever works for you.
Pray with me that many friends, neighbors, coworkers and family members will join us for worship and be moved by how much Jesus cares about them!
Yours in Christ,
P.S. This weekend our Growth Group team will have signup sheets out for our midweek groups. All groups will be starting a new topic as we head into March, so it’s a perfect time to join a group (or invite others to get connected). You can view the new studies here and register online as well.
