Partnering with families to raise a generation for Christ

Mission

Summit Kids wants to partner with families in the discipleship of their children. At every weekend gathering, we engage our kids—infants through 4th grade—with the gospel in a safe, fun, and age-appropriate way!

Awana

Awana is a tool we use to sink Scripture into the hearts and minds of our kids, 3 years old through 4th grade. We believe one of the most important gifts we can give to the next generation is a deep and lasting knowledge of God’s Word. Awana is designed to help parents cultivate that in the lives of our kids through an exciting, weekly experience where fun and learning go hand in hand.

Parent Commissioning

Parent Commissioning represents a commitment on your part to raise your kids up "in the training and instruction of the Lord" (Eph. 6:4), and a commitment on the part of The Summit Church to support you in that effort!

Jen Wilken on Raising an Alien Child

Many of you enjoyed hearing Jen Wilken speak to being a parent who pushes her children to love Jesus. This talk from a conference I attended a few years ago has been tremendously challenging and helpful as I've watched it numerous times. 

Why We Do Parent Commissioning Instead of Baby Dedication

If our parents are truly missionaries in the home, we want to send them into that mission field fully equipped.

Milestone Events

Parent Commissioning

Parent Commissioning is the Summit’s first opportunity to partner with parents as you build a strong foundation for your children, teaching them to love God, love each other, and love the world. We desire to come alongside you as you have children and learn what the Bible says about creating a gospel-centered home.

There are two steps in this milestone for your family:

First, our Parent Commissioning Orientation is where we discuss God’s design for parenting and how the Summit plans to support you and partner with you in discipling your children.

Second, our Parent Commissioning Celebration is where we come together to celebrate your desire to raise your child up in a God-centered home. During a designated weekend service, we’ll bring you onstage and pray for you as a church family.

Sign Up for Our Next Parent Commissioning Orientation

Gospel & Baptism

This class is a place where you and your elementary-age child will walk through the basics of the gospel and biblical reasons for baptism with Summit Kids staff. We provide resources for parents and give guidance during a time in which your kids are asking questions about the gospel, have made a profession of faith, or maybe just want to know why all those people are getting dunked after church! Sign up for the next available Gospel & Baptism class below.

Caring for Kids with Special Needs

Welcome to our GRACE Class ministry, where GRACE stands for God Reaches All Children Everywhere. We want this ministry to be the hands and feet of that promise to families and kids here at the Summit!

If you are interested in registering your kid(s) for this class at your campus, please take a minute and fill out this form and email it to the appropriate Summit Kids staff member listed at the bottom of the form. At most of our campuses we have options as to which services this class is offered, and we will communicate with you about those options during this process.

We consider it our blessing to be able to partner with you in caring for and discipling your kids!
