We hope this email finds you well! We are continuing to pray for you and your family. Please let us know if there are any specific needs we can pray for during this time. As our congregation is practicing social distancing, we know that many are missing the connection we have with others, not just on Sundays, but throughout the week. We want you to know that we ARE connecting throughout the week! We have four Bible studies and three life groups meeting throughout the week using an online option. We also have two additional Bible Studies that will begin in mid- April. We also have been connecting with our teens and children in "unique" ways.
You have the opportunity to connect. Summit Church has invested in Zoom accounts to keep our congregation meeting in an online format. You can see those you are meeting with "face to screen" and have conversations just like you would on FaceTime! It is a free app that can be downloaded on your phone, tablet, iPad, desktop or laptop computer. If you would like to be involved with one of the Bible Studies or Life Groups listed below, just contact the leader and ask them for the Zoom invite. They will send you the Zoom invitation by email or text and you will be on your way to spending some time with your brothers and sisters in Christ. And, if you need additional help with navigating the Zoom app, see the attached information! And if you still need assistance, feel free to contact Pastor Aaron at 810-712-3787 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Not only are we meeting together in Life Groups and Bible Study throughout the week, we are also meeting weekly to pray as a church family. At 6:30 pm each Thursday evening, we invite you to join us via Zoom to pray together. An invitation with the link to this prayer meeting will be sent out each Thursday morning.
And we know for many of you, part of worshiping also includes giving. We know with social distancing it is difficult to give in the same manner you may have previously. We have always had an online alternative to giving through our website estesparkchurch.org/giving. This is a safe and convenient way of giving online during this time. If you prefer not to give online, you do have the option of sending your offering to us by mail at Summit Church, PO Box 1231, Estes Park, CO 80517. Thank you for being faithful in your giving during this time.
We know that many in our congregation and in our community are struggling at this time. With businesses and lodging closing and a town that is dependent on tourism, we understand that there are those that may be facing difficult times ahead. We want to be here to meet your spiritual needs, but we also want you to know that we are here to meet your physical needs. If you are in need at this time, please contact the church office or a staff member so we can care for your family during this time. If you would like to be included on the list to help others in our Summit community during this time, you can contact Cheryl Grigsby at 970-481-7486 or email@example.com.
We love and appreciate each of you.
