Summit News!


Hey, Summit Family, this past Sunday was VERY SPECIAL as our church was presented the personally autographed football used in West High School’s win over East High, during the playoffs this year! Summit’s own, Coach Wes Shartz, the head football coach at West, presented it to us at our Men’s Ministry breakfast this past Saturday morning during his challenging message! He presented a great evangelistic goal of reaching young people for Christ to all the men present! Then, it was my privilege to present the football to the whole congregation Sunday morning! A display case has been purchased to house our gift for all to see in Summits bookstore. What makes it so neat is that it was the teams decision to give it to us. Earlier in the year we adopted West High School as one of our mission outreach projects. Some of our men even went out and held a cook-out for the whole team, and we have also donated funds to help with other needs of the individual team members. This was an amazing way for them (the players) to say thank you! Please pray for doors to open so that we will have additional opportunities to share with them the love of Christ. Having Coach Wes, and his lovely wife, Nancy, as part of our church family is exciting, and an honor! They are two of the many great new members God has sent us in the last few months!

We are getting more excited every day about the complete nursery remodel going on behind closed doors in the southwest part of our building! The project is about half finished and we will be announcing our  Ribbon Cutting ceremony soon. Please let me use this email to motivate all of you to help us get the news out that INFANTS, TODDLERS, and CHILDREN are very important to us at Summit! Invite those parents you know who have children and need a church home. You’re not going to believe it when you see it! It s going to be an area we’ll all be extremely proud of having! Help us get the word out. Don’t forget the commitment we’ve all embraced; INVITE, INVITE, INVITE!! Or, better still, BRING!!!! We continue to ask you to do your part in introducing new people to Summit!

Thanks for all your prayers, support, and encouragement, especially, during these last few weeks! As we learned this past Sunday, FAITHFUL, DEPENDABLE, GENUINE friends, and  consistent partners in God’s call  are RARE, EXTREMELY VALUABLE, and a GREAT BLESSING!! Never take them for granted. The INCONSISTENT are a real problem in The Church, universally! They always have been. Pastor John and I have frequently experienced disappointment in people throughout MANY years of ministry! That’s why we both thank our Heavenly Father, DAILY, for all of you we can COUNT ON! Never forget, I love you, Bro. Joe  P.S. This Sunday I will be sharing the last message in my sermon series, How To Get Along With Difficult People, as I share what God’s Word says about FORGIVING THE CRUEL. Don’t miss it. God wants to speak to you! Come listen.


The monthly Senior Adult Game night will be on Friday, November 16 @ 6:30 pm in the Welcome Center.  All ages are invited to attend.  Bring the family and enjoy a night of fellowship with others in the Summit family.  Bring a snack to share!

NO Wednesday Night activities this week.  Happy Thanksgiving.

“CONGRATULATIONS” TO  Ms Judy Reddoch on her retirement following many years of faithful service to the Ministry.


Our church dropped off 141 boxes to begin their journey to a special child.  Please continue to pray for these children and stay tuned for updates as to where our boxes went.
