There's a ton of fun and games in between worship and small group time, your middle school student won't want to miss it!

It's for middle school students entering into 7th and 8th grade in the fall of 2019. The cost of camp is $450 per student, and includes transportation, lodging, meals for the entire week and camp fees. Registration ended on March 31.

Summit Men - Frontier Justice

Guys, this next event is for you! Men today get told all the time in all sorts of ways that they have to be self-reliant men who can do anything and have anything, just by being tougher, smarter and as it turns out, lonelier, than the other guy. We get bombarded by heroes that are solo operators like Jason Bourne, James Bond, Jack Reacher. They show us one guy, taking the world on on their own, and living the dream. Making his own way, by his own rules. Guess what? That’s hopeless. That’s why at The Summit Church we hope to create a place where men can find a community, do life together and become better husbands, dads and followers of Jesus.

It all starts by getting to know other guys in our church family- and you can do just that at our Summit Men’s event at Frontier Justice on Saturday, April 13. The cost is just $20 per person and includes Zarda BBQ for lunch and shooting at Frontier Justice.

Registration for this event is now full.

Believe Middle School Retreat

to Feb 22

Believe Middle School Retreat

Middle school students are invited to Believe this Spring! Believe is an event taking place at the Kansas City Convention Center put on by Christ In Youth. It’s March 22-23 and it’s design just for 7th-8th grade students.

The theme this year at Believe is “I AM” and will help students explore their identity in Christ. The idea of identity is a universal struggle. Every generation wrestles with it. Middle school students sit at a pivotal moment in their lives where they are constantly asking the question “Who am I?” A student can’t truly know who they are until they know who God is. And this year CIY’s Believe tour will help your student understand what it means to find their identity in God.

There are hundreds of “I Am” statements in the Bible, but Believe will focus on four key phrases that will be a foundation for students to have deeper conversations about identity: “I am God’s masterpiece,” “I am God’s child,” “I am the church” and “I am a Kingdom worker.”
 
Believe also offers time for small groups where your child can connect with adult leaders and other students.

Registration for Believe is now open and it's just $99 for your student to attend! Students will leave from The Summit Church on Friday, March 22 at 5:30pm and return at 10:30pm. And leave for Believe on Saturday, March 23 at 8am and return at 4:30pm. Your student will need to bring money for lunch on Saturday, and for any merchandise they may want to purchase from CIY.
