Sending (Local & International)

Jun 16, 2021 | By Chris Jacobsen
At The Summit Church, we say "sending" for much of our Great Commission work because we believe every disciple of Jesus is sent—in RDU, into the nation, and around the world.


Two of our church values are... We Do Whatever It Takes To Reach All People and We Send Every Member.

On Saturday June 12th we hosting our Annual Family Fun Day for Adoptive and Foster Families in Raleigh-Durham. It was a huge success! We were able to host over 110 people and bless them with a fun outdoor day with games, inflatables, face paint, carnival games, and snacks!

Thank you for loving and supporting those in our church and community who are adopting and fostering!

Get Involved!

Let's continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our neighbors in Raleigh and to bring the hope of the gospel to all people!
