SUMMIT FAMILY FOUNDATIONS
Glorifying God In Our Homes By Teaching Our Children To Exalt Jesus Christ!
The leadership of Summit desires to equip parents to teach our children how to exalt Jesus Christ. We offer monthly workshops taught by Summit Elders and Pastors to teach parents how to seek wisdom from scripture to disciple their children.
Held in the spring and fall, this is an opportunity to meet the Family Foundations team and learn more about the heart Summit Church has for our families.
VISITING WITH US?
If you are new to Summit, we can’t wait to meet you! Our Family Foundations Supervisor will greet you at the Welcome Desk, help you register your family and walk you to your child’s classroom.
We teach the love and truth of Jesus Christ. At each age level, our children hear from God’s Word, worship Him as Lord and Savior and practice applying the truth in an age-appropriate way!
NURSERY // AGES 0-2
Every week, your child, ages 0-2 years old can be dropped off in their classroom at 9:50 am. Your child will learn all about Jesus through a lesson from God’s Word, worship and play!
PRESCHOOL // AGES 3-4
Every week, your child ages 3-4 years old can be dropped off in their classroom at 9:50 am. Your child will learn all about Jesus through a lesson from God’s Word, worship and play! At this level, children are beginning to learn how to spend time reflecting on God’s Word through quiet time.
ELEMENTARY // KINDERGARTEN – 5th GRADE
On the first three Sundays of the month, our kindergarten – fifth graders, will begin the service worshiping with their families. Before the sermon, children will be dismissed to line up in the foyer by grade level.
ELEMENTARY // GRADES K-5
On the first three Sundays of the month, our kindergarten – fifth graders, will begin the service worshiping with their families. Before the sermon, children will be dismissed to line up in the foyer by grade level. During their time in Summit Kids, our children learn from God’s Word, play a game in the gym and have small group discussions in their classroom. At this age level, children are beginning to ask questions and evaluate what they have learned. In small groups, we desire to engage children in deeper conversation about who God is, who they are and why they need a Savior.
ELEMENTARY // GRADES 2-5
Grades 2nd-5th will return to the service to reflect on what they learned and respond in worship to our God.
END OF EACH MONTH: FAMILY WORSHIP
We value the opportunities we have to worship and learn with our children. On the 4th and 5th Sundays of the month, our kindergarten-5th grade children get to stay in the service with their families for worship and the sermon. A Summit Kids bulletin is available to prompt our children to think about what they are hearing, ask questions and to reflect on their worship.
HERE’S HOW WE CAN HELP YOU, PARENTS!
1. Your kids are a BLESSING to us. They are an important part of our church family and God gives them gifts to encourage all of us. Don’t worry about the noise they might make, or the inevitable “wiggling” in their sits they’ll perform. Need to take them for a walk at some point? You can watch and hear the service in our lobby, so feel free to take advantage of that resource if you need it!
2. Let us introduce you to our dear FAMILY FOUNDATIONS team that are committed to helping you to parent your children in a way that points them to a real relationship with Jesus. Check out the video below!
