Movie Night at the Summit Friday, June 12

On Friday night, June 12th, at 7 pm Summit will have a Movie Night.  The movie being shown is Return To The Hiding Place.  The movie is about the life of Corrie ten Boom. Cornelia “Corrie” ten Boom was a Dutch Christian who, along with her father and other family members, helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. She was imprisoned for her actions.

Tickets are $7 for anyone attending this movie.  We will have concessions available to purchase before and during the movie. BUY TICKETS HERE

For the children that evening…

We have a free (age appropriate) movie that will be shown for the younger children (K-6th grades) while their parents attend the movie.  They will enjoy free pizza and popcorn in the Children’s Department during their movie.  A nursery will be provided for all pre-school children whose parents are attending the movie.

Summit Church Has an App

In case you missed the announcement: Summit’s new App is now available on IPhone and Android Smart Phones!  People who have already downloaded the App love it! You will find Live Streaming, Videos, Audio, Bible, Notebook, On-line Giving, Prayer Wall….and more… all at your fingertips with the new Summit Church Mobile App.  To download from your App Store (for Apple users) or the Google Play Store (for Android phones), search for “Summit Church Kansas” and install—the App is FREE!

Thanks for Your Faithfulness

Please remember to be faithful with your attendance as well as your tithes and offerings.  As you are seeing, we are re-doing the front of the building with all new concrete and steps as well as replacing several roof air-conditioning units.  The cost of these projects is $60,000.00. We need everyone to help us cover these extra expenses. We want our church facilities to be honoring to the Lord.  You can give through our website (summitchurchkansas.com) or by mailing your gifts to the church.  Our mailing address is: Summit Church, 10225 East Kellogg Wichita, KS 67207. Our new Summit App also enables giving on it.

We are looking forward to a great weekend here at the Summit!  Pastor Joe Wright will be preaching Sunday morning at 8:45 and I will be preaching in the 10:50 am service.  See you Sunday!

Blessings,

Pastor Terry

A Christian’s Take on “Do You Believe” Warning: Spoiler Alert

In my opinion “Do You Believe” is this generation’s “In His Steps”. “In His Steps” is a fiction book that tells of a pastor and his church that change a community when they take seriously the question, “What Would Jesus Do”. This movie is similar in that Matthew, a pastor, challenges his church to ask themselves, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ.”

The story really begins when Malachi, a street preacher who carries around a huge wooden cross, walks up to Matthew’s car and asks him, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ?” Matthew’s response is, “I am a pastor.” Malachi says, “That isn’t what I asked you, I asked you if you believe in the cross of Christ?” Matthew responds that he does believe in the cross of Chris and this begins an awakening in his faith. He realizes that if he really believes in the cross then it should change the way he lives. On the following Sunday he then passes out a pocket sized cross to all of his church members and challenges them to answer the question, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ”.

The movie then tells the story of 12 people somehow related to his church and how they come to the point of experiencing an awakening in their faith because they realize that to believe in the cross means giving up their pride, their comfort, and even their lives.

So is this movie simply for Christians? No, I believe everyone will enjoy this movie, matter of fact I think it is important that as Christians we get all of our unbelieving friends to go see this movie. While the movie may not be a blockbuster, it is a powerful jolt to the heart asking believer and unbeliever alike, “Do you believe in the cross of Christ and what difference has that made in your life”.

If you have seen the movie, please share this post on Facebook.

SUMMIT SEEKERS NEWS

The Children’s Department has been a very busy and exciting place to be
this winter. There are many varied activities that your children will be
enjoying. Here is a brief description of each activity. Please feel free to call
461-2563 if you have any question.

1.  Please remember that we do serve breakfast the first Sunday of each
month. We serve breakfast from 9:30 to 10:00. Please inform Janie
or one of the teachers if your child has any food allergies.

2. Our Department is really growing.  We have had a total of 65
different children come on Sunday mornings’. We are so pleased
with our growth. Keep bringing your friends. Let’s see if we can all be
there at the same time, WOW !

3.  The children are having a skating party. We will be skating at Skate-
South on Saturday, April 11th from 1-4 p. m. The skating rink is
located at 1900 E. MacArthur Rd. in Wichita. Janie will ask a parent to
sign a permission slip ahead of time. The church will pay the
admission fee, however, the children will need to bring money for
refreshments.   Everyone will be asked to sign a liability waiver.

4. We have had several big accomplishments.  Several of the children
have acquired the knowledge of learning all 66 books of the Bible!!
So proud of them!  Many of them have learned the meaning of the
Ten Commandments. We have been discussing one commandment a
week for the last 10 weeks.

5. I would like to give a special shout-out to Joel Smith, Emma Sells and
Logan Short for completing the New Christian class taught by
Faye Robertson.  Their graduation will be Sunday, March 29th during
Children’s Church.

6. I would like to encourage ALL children to be present Easter Sunday.
We will have an egg hunt with a couple prize eggs and a special craft.
We will also be presenting the Resurrection Story.
Once again, thank you so very much for allowing me the privilege of
telling your children about our awesome Lord.
