Simply stated: Summit Student Ministries exists to make disciples of Christ (John 8:31). We want students not only to learn about Jesus but to put his teaching into practice. Students are inundated with many messages that contradict what Christ taught. Therefore, everything we do is geared toward showing kids what it means to love God by being Christ’s disciples. Whether it’s dodge ball, Core Groups (small groups), or summer camp, our goal is to create environments where students can draw near to God.


6th – 8th graders, join us Sunday at 10:30am in the Loft. You'll experience a live worship band and a relevant message that you can apply to your life! There is just enough activity at Avalanche to keep you engaged while still presenting the message God has for you.



High school students meet Sunday at Noon in the Loft. We get together for worship, a message, and to interact with other students. At Vertical, you'll participate in a service that's just for you! The message you hear will be able to be applied to your life right away.


Core Groups

Wednesdays 6:30-8pm, from September through May, on Summit’s campus. You'll be with an adult leader and a group of students in your same grade. You'll be encouraged to talk about life, ask questions, and grow in community with each other. Occasionally, we’ll throw in some other fun events on Wednesday night, like worship night, dodge ball, and more!
