- So pumped about the Grand Opening of Summit Church! It’s true that the mission hasn’t changed (Jesus gave us the mission 2,000 years ago!) but the methods have and Summit is more committed than EVER to Reaching those far from God, Raising them up in Christ, and, Releasing them for His mission! So let me tell you how you can help (especially in the first part of our mission… “Reaching those far from Christ”).
First, there are two video invites you can share—yes, “TWO.” Why?Several reasons.
First, the primary place to reach the masses is through Facebook—and people on Facebook will only give you about a nano-second of consideration before deciding whether or not to watch your video. Therefore, it needs to be exciting and non threatening. So we have a video designed to be shared with all your friends, co-workers, family, neighbors, etc. who are unchurched and probably have some pretty far out notions of what Christianity is all about.
The second video option goes into a little more detail about what we do as a church. Many of you have Christian friends who have not yet found a church. Some of you have met neighbors and friends who recently moved here and are looking for a true, Bible believing church that presents the gospel in a relevant way—Summit is definitely that. If you want to invite those folks—the second video option is for you. You can access both below.
It’s important that everyone follow this in order for us to reach as many people as possible, so let me make sure there’s no confusion…
First, some may think the unchurched invite is too, “seeker sensitive” (whatever that means) but consider the alternative—should we make an invite that’s ‘Seeker Hostile?’ Of course not! It is our hope that the family fun and free food, etc. will bring folks in, but, at the same time, we know the only thing that changes lives is the true gospel message of Jesus Christ! The salvation message will be going out all three weeks of our grand opening! Remember, it’s what’s inside that counts!
Second, there may be a temptation to spam all your Christian friends who already go to good, Bible believing churches in Denver. Please don’t do this. At Summit, we have no desire to reshuffle the deck nor do we want to encourage a culture of church hopping and shopping. Again, the second video is for Christians who don’t have a church home and are looking to make a huge difference for God’s Kingdom! We want to make the name of Jesus famous in Denver!
Please consider this unique opportunity to reach those far from God and invite as many as you can to the Summit for the rest of September! Do this by actually sharing it on your own Facebook page–literally hitting the “SHARE” button below the video on the Summit Church Facebook page and following the simple instructions they give. Thanks!
- The Student movement at Summit is still in full swing—and picking up speed! Last Sunday was the biggest event in years, and both students and parents are beginning to see that we are more than a party. Our students are just as sold out to our mission to Reach, Raise, Release, as the adults—maybe more so! Honestly, what they pulled off last week as far as invites will be a tough act to follow for the rest of the church. We up for it?!
- Remember the ribbons! Over the last several weeks many of us have been writing names on ribbons and tying them to the harvest trees! Just as a reminder, we are begging God for a great harvest—He already gave that to us! Matthew 9:37, “He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but…
“But the workers are few.”
So the trouble is not on God’s end. He’s moving in millions of hearts every single day. The issue has always been, ‘too few people out there ready and willing to invite people to Jesus!’ Let’s be part of the solution and fill His house all three weekends of this grand opening! In other words…
38 “…pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”
