Coronavirus Information and Resources

This information was last updated on Friday, April 3.

As concerns increase surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are committed to doing whatever we can to provide a safe environment for you and your family.

To that end, our directional elders have appointed a team, consisting of several key staff members and medical professionals from our church, to monitor this situation more directly. This team has been meeting daily (sometimes hourly) to assess the current public health news and policy updates issued by the CDC and other appropriate agencies, applying their recommendations to our current situation.

While God has not given us a spirit of fear, he has called us to love our neighbors and to contribute to the welfare of our community. Exercising caution is not merely wise, but is a tangible way of expressing love toward others.

How to Watch or Listen to Services

For the foreseeable future, we will not meet for worship gatherings at any of our campus locations.

We will be streaming services at the following times on Facebook, YouTube, and live.summitchurch.com:

  • Saturdays at 4 and 5:30 p.m.
  • Sundays at 9 and 10:45 a.m.

These services will be archived and available at any time on all three channels:

Summit en Español

We will also stream a service in Spanish for our Summit en Español congregation on Sundays at 10:45 a.m. on their website and Facebook page.

Facebook YouTube Website

You can participate by watching one of our streamed services on your smart TV, in a browser on your computer, or on your mobile device. If you have a smart TV with the YouTube app, you may navigate there directly and search for "The Summit Church."


Easter Services

While we can’t gather in person for Easter this year, we’re excited to worship together in several ways. Click here for more information!


Listen to the Service by Phone

For those who may not have access to the internet in their home, nursing home, or hospital room, we have a phone number that allows you to call in and listen to our 10:45 a.m. service live. Here’s how it works:

  1. Call (844) 698-6868.
  2. To be notified when our 10:45 a.m. service goes live, press “1,” and you’ll receive a phone call on Sunday before the service begins.
  3. If you miss the live service, you can call the number at any time and hear the previous service on-demand.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Interpretation

Our sermons from “The World Upside-Down” series are now available on-demand with sign language interpretation for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.


First Time Guests

Even while we’re apart, we want to welcome our First Time Guests. If you know someone who joined us for the first time, encourage them to visit summitchurch.com/guest so they can receive our First Time Guest resources and we can connect with them.

Resources for Bible Study and Prayer

We are so encouraged by the way you’re loving on and serving your community in this season. We are praying that God would strengthen and encourage you to keep finding ways to image Christ to your homes and neighbors in the coming days, weeks, and months.

As a church, we want to provide resources to help you do this well, so we’re sharing a discipleship resource called “Don’t Waste Your Quarantine.” In it, you’ll find various tools and resources on how to leverage this season in regards to your home, spiritual disciplines, your community, and more.

How to Care

Our ServeRDU team recommends partnering with these local ministries and organizations to help our community.

Small Groups

While we won't be able to gather as small groups in person, we want to encourage every group to continue to relationally engage and meet virtually each week during this season. This is a great time for you to assist your "technologically-challenged" small group leader, as you use one of the great virtual meeting platforms out there! You can find each week's small group guide included in our weekly resources, updated every Friday.

Small group leaders, we will continue to resource you through the SG Weekly Update each Friday afternoon. You can expect resources ranging from how-tos for virtual community tools to weekly group curriculum.

Events

All other official Summit events scheduled between today, March 20, and the lifting of Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order will not be meeting as scheduled. We will assess, in due time, whether we can reschedule these events.
