Home Gatherings

Home gatherings are how you can be the movement in your community.

A Summit home gathering is a weekly meeting of Summit members and guests, in homes, where we worship Jesus through singing, teaching, and fellowship with one another, in order to make disciple-making disciples in RDU and around the world.

In this season, we want to do whatever it takes to ensure no one has to worship alone.
