Summit News!


Hey, Summit Family, I really enjoyed the time we spent this past Sunday honoring not only MOTHERS, but ALL WOMEN in attendance! I’ve been, especially, happy to hear from a number of ladies who have not experienced carrying a child “full-term”, but who, this year, felt included! Many have had miscarriages, or have lost a child in some other way.  Most  “Mother’s Days” they have felt left out! Taking the opportunity to remind them they STILL HAVE a son or daughter IN HEAVEN was a blessing! We, also, included ALL POTENTIAL MOTHERS during our “special” prayer time. I’m told some even picked up, ON THEIR WAY OUT, the beautiful long-stemmed pink carnations, being shared by our ushers and greeters with EVERY WOMAN, which they had passed up as they entered our worship service. It  really was a neat time! I want to, personally, thank Pastor John for his LEADERSHIP in this effort, and to all of those who HELPED, to make it a very meaningful time in our gathering.

Your response to this series of messages called “FAMILY MATTERS”  has been extremely encouraging! Preaching on GOD’S BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES, to ensure a GODLY FAMILY, is “tough”, “straight to the point”, and, definitely, “politically incorrect” teaching! Frankly, EVERY WEEK when I share God’s Word, honestly, it steps on MY TOES as much as anyone else’s! But, we all NEED to, constantly, “EXAMINE OURSELVES to see whether or not we are IN THE FAITH!” That’s a Biblical command we all need to take seriously! Join us this Sunday, at 10:00AM, as we take a close look at LOVE, SEX, & MARRIAGE. I’ll be looking for you.

Have a blessed week, and never forget how much I love you! Bro. Joe
