Summit News!

VBS begins this coming Monday @ 6pm! See Details below!!!!

A WORD FROM BRO. JOE,

Hey, Summit Family,

    The Apostle Paul, under the  INSPIRATION of The Holy Spirit, records in ROMANS 12:2 these words: “Do  NOT be CONFORMED to THIS WORLD, but be TRANSFORMED by the  RENEWING of your MIND, that you may PROVE what IS that GOOD, and ACCEPTABLE, and PERFECT will of God.” We’ve  ALL used the  PHRASE “cookie cutter” to  DESCRIBE THINGS other than COOKIES: cookie-cutter HOUSES, cookie-cutter APARTMENTS, cookie cutter CUSTOMER SERVICE SOLUTIONS, and cookie-cutter HAIRCUTS on new military recruits. In other words, the  DESIGN is “SET” and “APPLIED” in EVERY INSTANCE, so the  RESULTS are ACCORDING to the  DESIGN — like when star-shaped cookies ALL LOOK THE SAME. The English Bible translator J. B. Phillips used the “cookie-cutter” idea in    his PARAPHRASE of ROMANS 12:2: “Don’t let the  WORLD AROUND YOU squeeze you  INTO its OWN MOLD, but let God  RE-MOLD your  MIND from WITHIN, so that you may PROVE IN PRACTICE that the  PLAN OF GOD for YOU is GOOD, meets ALL His DEMANDS, and MOVES TOWARDS the GOAL of TRUE MATURITY.” The WORLD (empowered by the devil) wants to CONFORM EVERY PERSON into a GODLESS IMAGE! Instead, we are to  RENEW our mind with GOD’S WORD, daily, so we can RESIST the pressures of SIN, the  WORLD, and the DEVIL! The TRUTH of The Bible is our PROTECTION! It DEFENDS US against being MADE INTO a “cookie-cutter image” of THE WORLD.  As we began 2019, over six months ago, I CHALLENGED each person at Summit to “APPLY” The Word Of God to their lives!  HOW are you DOING? I told you I didn’t mean just “READ IT”, or even “LISTEN” to it, BUT “APPLY” it!! If you ARE, you are  EXPERIENCING LIFE CHANGE! This Sunday I BEGIN a “series of messages” on the 10 COMMANDMENTS, found in the Book Of Exodus. I hope I’ll see you at 10:00AM. I’ll be SHARING BIBLICAL WISDOM that will SET YOU FREE from BEHAVIOR that will STEAL GOD’S PROMISED BLESSINGS from you! His COMMANDS are NOT GIVEN to be “RESTRICTIVE”, but to “BLESS YOU!!” God LOVES you, and WANTS what’s BEST for ALL of His CREATION! Pastor John just finished one of the MOST POWERFUL SERIES of sermons, I’ve ever heard, CENTERED AROUND the MAGNIFICENCE of our HEAVENLY FATHER! If you MISSED THEM, or even  ONE, they are  ALL available on  CD at the rear of the WORSHIP CENTER each Sunday morning. Please continue to  INVITE INVITE, and better still, BRING visitors to our services! As always, thanks for your FAITHFUL and ENCOURAGING support!  Love always, Bro. Joe
