WELCOME VISITORS!  We are so glad you visited today.  You are important to us!  We hope you will be encouraged by the service today.  If you are visiting for the first time, please fill out the visitor tab from the Welcome Brochure and take it to the Connections Table for a free gift. 

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD:  Today is the day!  After the service today, we will have a potluck lunch and Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Packing Party.  Join us for a special time of ministry to children around the world.  Many thanks to everyone who donated items for the shoeboxes!

TEENS:  Every Tuesday night, from 7-8:30, we have a great ministry for teens.  Teens spend time learning and discussing the Bible and how to walk out their Christian life.   All teens are welcome!

VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK:  Our last Volunteer of the Week is our youngest volunteer, Tristan Collins. Tristan loves to help! Tristan helps on work days and with Christmas decorating and un-decorating. He really loves to vacuum!  Tristan wants you to know that two of his favorite things are cardboard boxes and duct tape. We really appreciate all that Tristan does to make Summit Church a great family church! Give a shout out to Tristan and let him know how much you appreciate him!

ENCOUNTER MEETING:  Encounter Meetings are in-depth Bible Studies geared toward strengthening your faith.  Our next study will be "Letters from a Fisherman-a Study of 1 & 2 Peter", which will be held on the first four Tuesdays in October, from 7-8 PM.  Everyone is encouraged to join in studying God's Word!

YOU ARE NEEDED!  There are many opportunities to serve at Summit.  Check out the many ministries and outreaches we have.  We are currently in need of Ushers, Door Greeters, Hostesses and Connections Table volunteers. 
CHILI COOK OFF AND GAME NIGHT:  Clear your calendars now! We are having a Chili Cook-Off and Game Night on Friday, October 26, from 6-9. This evening is for the whole family, so load up the teens, kids and grandparents! We are going to have a great time with lots of good food, prize for the best chili and all kinds of games. Kids are welcome to dress in costume. (nothing scary) You can sign up at the Connections Table.

GIVING:  For your convenience, Summit Church offers online giving and text to give.  You may text the amount you'd like to give to 314-888-9741 or go to and click "Giving" on the menu bar.

SHARING JESUS:  We are sharing the gospel through the passing out of tracts.  Pray over your tracts!  Pray that God will direct you to the right people to give them to. Continue to pray for boldness and the direction of the Holy Spirit as you share Christ.    "You are the light of the world." Matt 5:14 NIV

WORSHIP GOD!  Pastor Terry is currently teaching a series on Worship.  Did you know that Martin Luther required his whole church to attend choir practice?  He did this so that on Sunday mornings, the whole congregation could sing out to the Lord.  We encourage you to be familiar with the worship songs at Summit.  You can find a link to all of the songs we sing and new ones we will be learning at  We also put a list of the songs we will be singing on facebook every Wednesday afternoon.
