Sending (Local & International)

Apr 01, 2021 | By Chris Jacobsen
At The Summit Church, we say "sending" for much of our Great Commission work because we believe every disciple of Jesus is sent—in RDU, into the nation, and around the world.


Two of our church values are... We Do Whatever It Takes To Reach All People and We Send Every Member.

This past February I've seen this to be true of us! After Pastor J.D.'s sermon on sanctity of life, you the church rose to the occasion by caring and serving those facing unplanned pregnancies and those adopting and fostering. Here are few highlights from this past month:

  • Over 30 people reached out to get involved after Pastor J.D.'s sermon!
  • A Capital Hills Small Group came up with the idea to host a Diaper Drive in the parking lot!
    • Because of this idea, we collected hundreds of diaper boxes, car seats, cleaning supplies, and gift cards for our local partners!
    • Members of a local CrossFit gym rallied around this call and donated a SUV and trailer full of supplies!
  • We were able to raise $5,000 to support of local partner, Human Coalition!

Keep being the church, Summit! We want it to matter to the community that we are here!

Growing as Witnesses!

A continued theme growing at Capital Hills is a desire to embrace the identity of witness - proclaiming Christ in word and deed.

Get Involved!

Let's continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our neighbors in Raleigh and to bring the hope of the gospel to all people!
