THE RACK FALL/WINTER CLOTHES CLOSET – We are busy preparing for our next free shopping day on October 28th and we can use your gently used fall/winter clothes, shoes, jackets and coats to help those in need right here in our community. We take clothes and shoes in all sizes and are in specific need of boy and infant clothing. You can drop off donations at the Engage Culture kiosk on Sundays or at our HQ during the week, Monday-Thursday. Contact Kristina at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Watch for more event information and volunteer sign-up coming soon!

EXCITING THINGS ARE HAPPENING AT BASECAMP: The new Summit Student Ministry, on Sunday nights, is growing with new students each week. We are in great need of Servant Leaders who can serve alongside another leader to help facilitate a Small Group of 12 students. There are specific opportunities to serve with our 6th, 7th, and 9th grade girls. As our ministry grows we will need leaders for other grade levels for both guys and girls. If you are interested in Serving as a Small Group Leader or in any capacity at Summit BASECAMP on Sunday Nights, we would love for you to contact Nicole for more information.
