There are many opportunities throughout the year to be involved in outreach through Summit Church. Please stop by the Connections Table or check the bulletin for details.
Every summer, people from Summit Church travel to Imperial, Nebraska, to participate in a Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) packing day. FMSC is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God's children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: Children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and we ship these meals to our distribution partners. FMSC meals have reached nearly 70 countries around the world.
Each spring, the town of Estes Park hosts a city-wide cleanup effort. Volunteers from Summit Church partner with volunteers throughout the community to beautify our town. Hundreds of bags of trash and debris is collected from all the streets, valleys, hills, and river beds in town. This annual Saturday morning outreach is a great way to bless our town and help on a very practical level. (This event takes place the Saturday before the Annual Duck Race in Estes Park.)
On October 31st each year, the town of Estes Park encourages all residents and visitors to gather downtown for a community-wide event. Those celebrating Halloween and those just enjoying community all come together for this one evening. Summit Church provides chili for all of the folks gathered downtown. It is a wonderful way to show love to our neighbors and interact with great people.
Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is a branch of Samaritan's Purse. Samaritan's Purse is a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. In the hands of local churches, every OCC gift -filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship-transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the good news of Jesus Christ! Summit Church packs hundreds of boxes each holiday season and enjoys participating this a world-wide Christmas effort.
Summit Church values the Estes Park School District and the many efforts of teachers and staff. As an expression of gratitude, Summit Church presents breakfast gift baskets to all the teachers and staff once each quarter of the school year.
The Community Corner Café is a free dinner meal open to all, especially those with financial difficulties, seniors, singles, and anyone wanting fellowship and a warm meal. Volunteers from various churches and other organizations help prepare, serve, and clean-up. Children’s activities are provided during the meal where sometimes more than 100 are served. Summit Church is scheduled to work and serve Friday, February 17th from 2:30 to 8:00 PM. If you would like to be a part of serving that evening, please contact Karen Thompson at 970-590-9942 and she will arrange a time for volunteering.
