As we consider the best timeline and approach for reopening our campuses, our directional elders continue to keep an eye on the governor’s guidelines, to consult with medical professionals, and to consider what other churches of our size are doing. As we have from the beginning, we are attempting to make wise decisions that both honor our governing authorities and bless our community.
To that end, our directional elders have decided that we will continue to operate online-only for all ministry functions, including the weekend service, at least through Sunday, July 19.
Our task force will make a new recommendation to the directional elders the week of July 20. As they decide the timeline for our next steps, we will communicate them with you as soon as possible. Until then, stay tuned at summitchurch.com, social media, and your email.

Right now, our primary strategy to reach all people is through Summit Online—including worship services and small groups (or virtual groups).
Summit Online Service Times
Saturdays at 4 p.m. | Sundays at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. | Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
Worship Together With Neighbors in Your Homes
As you’re comfortable, invite neighbors and friends into your home to worship with you.
Preparing for and Returning to In-person Worship
We’ll remain online through at least July 19. We don’t have specific dates and times for resuming in-person worship, but know that we’re preparing our reopening plan to use when we are ready to do so.
Upcoming Virtual Member Meeting
In light of the recent developments in our state, we have postponed our member meeting originally scheduled for the end of June. We’ll reconvene and share updates on our plans to keep you and your families safe as we have more information.
To help you navigate the current season, we’ve addressed some FAQs regarding our church, how we’re making decisions, and our plans moving forward. You can find them on the right side of this page under “More Resources.”
Watch a recap of our virtual member meeting to hear more about the Summit’s ongoing response to COVID-19 and our strategy for reopening.
