Message from Lead Pastor, Brian Agovino
Monday, March 30
Hey Summit Family,
Happy Monday! Every Monday I will send out the Monday Memo to keep you up to speed on all things Summit. God is doing some really cool things, so I just want to keep you in the loop with what’s happening. Here are the events and information for this week:
01. Holy Week | Easter Sunday
Easter is less than two weeks away. I want to encourage you to plan on celebrating with us virtually that day! We are still finalizing the details for Sunday, but during Holy Week we will provide Easter Packets for you. These will contain activities and various elements to help you engage with Holy Week. We will have these packets ready by next Monday, April 06 and they will be placed in a tub outside the Worship Building doors so you can swing by and pick them up. Definitely plan on swinging by the church early next week to grab one.
02. Community Groups
Staying at home and being unable to see people is tough. During this next season, it is critical that we stay connected. Community Groups are the key to this! Right now, we have 13 groups actively participating virtually and we are working on getting two new groups started. If you are not currently in a group, please contact Brandon, email@example.com. We want to get you connected. And if you already are part of a group, even if you haven’t attended in a while, please make time for this. It will be good for you as well as for the people in your group.
03. Caring For The Vulnerable
Many of you have asked about our plan to serve the community. Right now we are finalizing a plan to put together blessing bags with the Sharing Shed to give to previous clients of the Shed. Next Monday, April 06 I will have more details about donations and how you can participate or donate. We also started a specific benevolence fund called COVID 19 Relief. We are going to use that fund to provide for needs within the body and in the community for COVID relief. You can give online anytime.
Action steps for you:
Keep checking thesummitstl.info, keep checking the Summit Facebook page, and keep praying. Pray for God to open up opportunities for us to serve our community as we believe and become the gospel.
Thankful for you all.
In an effort to protect others and our community, the need for social distancing continues to prevent us from gathering together for corporate worship on Sunday mornings. Even so, we encourage you not to allow that to cause distance in your spiritual life. Participate in the worship service together every Sunday at 10:00 AM, be disciplined in your continued giving, let us know how we can pray for you, and engage your kids in an age-appropriate lesson. Be intentional about setting aside time for church!
Parents: Use the Kids Lesson card to teach this week's lesson in your home.
Students: There will be no in-person student gatherings until the CDC lifts the recommendations for gatherings staying under 10 people. But join us on Instagram (@summitstl_students) for live devotions each Wednesday at 6:00 PM.
We want to encourage you to continue to give faithfully to The Summit even though we aren't meeting on Sunday mornings so that we can continue to do ministry and be on mission. You can continue to give three different ways:
01: You can drop your donation by the church office Monday - Friday | 9AM - 4pm. Or mail your donation to 927 E. Terra Ln, O'Fallon, MO 63376.
02: You can set up on-line bill pay through your bank to draft your donation directly out of your account each month.
03: You can give online through our website. Click the button below.
