Welcome Pastor Vince, Marianna, Matthew, Collin and Kathleen Parks! Their family got everything on a moving truck this past week, hit the road and have now arrived in Arizona. When they arrived the welcome banner we signed at church last week was in front of their new house (thanks to some Summit guys).
I hope you can join us this Sunday to welcome them in person! Pastor Vince will be officially installed as a part of team during worship, and there will be a chance to meet their family following both services.
I love the promise that God gave Joshua: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9) It’s exciting to have them here. Continue to pray for them through this transition and ask for the Lord’s hand to be on them (and our church) in this new season of ministry.
I can’t believe that Easter is just a week away! It is a powerful weekend to celebrate the hope we have and share that good news with others. Here are Summit’s Easter worship times:
Good Friday (April 3) at 6 & 7:30pm
Easter Sunday (April 5) at 8, 9:30 & 11am
Children’s ministry will be provided on Sunday morning at all three services. Youth worship will be at 11am.
Earlier this year our church went through a series called “Just Walk Across The Room.” We celebrated steps taken by reaching out, praying for and inviting using Toekins collected on Sundays to show our walks across rooms. We’re so proud of these steps our church is taking, but particularly with our kids! The kids knocked it out of the park and took many walks across rooms to impact classmates and friends.
Let’s keep that spirit going – This season is one of the best times of the year to reach out and invite people to church: they are open to invitations to Easter Sunday.
I can’t wait to celebrate Easter with our church and community!
Yours in Christ,
P.S. This Sunday we are going to have some creative ways to invite friends including something special (remember to invite your peeps):
