Summit is a small congregation of around 100 members, 50 of whom attend the Sunday service. While many members are older, there are some young families and we have a multiracial Sunday School class of around 10 children. People wear what's comfortable for them.
There is plenty of parking and the main entrance is the one with the canopy (where you may drop people off in bad weather or if they need assistance).
Someone will greet you at the door. The worship space is to the right, and the rest rooms to the left.
Visitors are always welcomed warmly. You are invited to contact us if you'd like more information before attending for a first time.
Email the church with any questions or comments.

God of Wonder, I Give You Thanks
by Pastor Karen Candee
Thank you God for the gift of life
and for creating us in your image.
Thank you God for the many ways
in which you reveal yourself to us;
not only in Scripture, through the sacraments,
and in worship,
but in the beauty and peace of a crimson sunset,
in the power and greatness
displayed in the waves of a raging sea,
in the vastness of the universe
as we gaze upon the stars and planets of the night sky,
in the smile of a stranger or the gentle touch of a friend.
Most of all, dear God,
Thank you for how you have displayed
the depth of your love
and your great desire to live in communion with us,
by coming to us in the person of Jesus Christ.
In Jesus, you not only showed us how to live,
but you accepted the cost of human sin
and bore that burden for all
as the sins of humanity nailed you to the cross.
Even while nailed to the cross,
in the person of Jesus Christ you prayed for us;
“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
But sin and death could not defeat you
as you raised Christ from the dead into new life.
Through your great mercy in the gift of forgiveness,
you set us free from the bondage of sin,
and restore to us our relationship with you
and with all of creation.
By the gift of your Holy Spirit,
you transform us from within;
empowering us to walk in your ways.
God, thank you for your persistence in calling out to us when we go astray;
for being the light in the darkness
that shows us the way back home,
and for the open arms that lovingly embrace us
when we turn to you in humility.
God of all creation,
may I humbly walk with you as your faithful servant;
may others come to know you in all I say and do.
To you, O God,
Father/Mother, Son, and Holy Spirit,
Be all glory and honor.
