Celebration Youth News
Summit Youth served joyfully at the Carolyn Scott Rainbow House on Sunday. We started by making chili and other foods at the Celebration kitchen, and then took it to the Rainbow House, a place where families of Children's Hospital patients can stay while their kids are getting treatment. We prayed for people and gave them a reason to smile. Here you see a picture of our youth praying for a grandmother visiting her grandson who is recovering from his third open heart surgery.
Owe nothing to anyone - - except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God's law. Romans 13:8

Nov 19th, City Wide Prayer Focus
As part of our commitment to the Citywide Prayer network, Celebration has agreed to pray for the Metro area churches on the 19th of every month. This month’s prayer focus is "Thankfulness". As 2018 rounds the corner toward the finish line, there is certainly no shortage of needs to lift before God’s throne! But just as our forefathers saw fit to take time to offer praise and thanksgiving to God in the midst of an unknown and uncertain future, we would do well to follow their example, because HE IS WORTHY. So stop too and thank Him for what He has done, and praise Him for who He is! For a list of scriptures and prayer points follow the link HERE.
