Summit Youth students on Spring Break from Millard and Elkhorn Public Schools spent some of their time very well this week! We helped out Celebration's Blessing Bag Ministry downtown, passing out bags, and loving on and praying for those less fortunate in our community. Next, we served our church and surrounding neighborhoods by beginning to prep Easter eggs for the hunt coming up on Sat, April 20th. Also this week, Youth Ministry Director Dawn Lewis presented the quarters collected for The Beautiful Gate's laundromat ministry. $110 worth! Thank you to everyone that donated, and keep those quarters coming because we are doing it again!
Volunteers are needed to prepare the coffee and donuts on Sunday morning for church attendees. And/or to clean up the refreshment station after the 10:30 AM service. Volunteers serve once a month.
Do you enjoy caring for children ages birth - 3 years old. Sign up on the connection card to learn more about serving 1 Sunday a month either at the 9 or 10:30 am service in the nursery.
Ice Melt donations

April 6, 7-830 pm, Upper Room Night
The upper room is a place where Jesus showed His disciples His love. On the eve of Passover, he washed their feet, broke bread with them, and prepared them for the days ahead. After His resurrection, He met them there. And on Pentecost, as they prayed, He sent them the “Promise of the Father”—the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Upper Room Night is a time set aside for fellowship with Jesus, teaching in an interactive setting, and receiving and expressing the Holy Spirit. Both adults and students, church members and guests, are welcome. Join us and let Jesus reveal His love to you, through the Holy Spirit! Also, save the date for our next session on May 11.
