A Message

FROM OUR PASTOR

Thanks so much for checking us out!  We are so excited about what God is doing at Summit Church here in Buffalo, and we were filled with anticipation with where God is leading us in the future.  We are passionate about guiding each person take their next step on the journey of faith.  It doesn't matter if you've been a follower of Christ for fifty years or are just investigating the whole church thing for the first time, we are here to help you through the process.


As you can see, we are also passionate about families.  Children are a priority to us.  We don't want kids to feel like they are being dragged to something they don't enjoy and don't understand.  Instead we want to have a vibrant kids program that fills children with such excitement that they can't wait to come back again next week. 


It's also a high value for us to do life together.  We want to help people plug in, get involved, and find genuine friendships. 


If you haven't yet visited us on a Sunday morning, we can't wait to meet you!  We are committed to giving God our very best every weekend and providing you with inspirational music, engaging messages, dynamic kid's programs, and a welcoming grace-filled atmosphere.


See you at the Summit!

Pastor William


A PLACE TO CALL HOME



YOUR  FIRST  VISIT

WORSHIP STYLE:

Our 8:00 Traditional Service is for those who prefer a more historic form of worship.  Expect a hymn, responsive reading, and the celebration of the Lord's Supper every week.


Our 9:15 and 10:45 Contemporary Service is for those who enjoy more upbeat and modern worship.  Expect a full worship team with drums, guitar, and 4-5 songs. 


The message is identical in all three services. 


WHAT TO WEAR:

We truly have a "come as you are" atmosphere that you will feel comfortable in whatever you are wearing.  Most will be wearing business casual, and the pastor will likely be preaching in jeans. 

A PLACE TO INVESTIGATE:

Summit Church is known for being warm and outgoing.  We work hard at making you feel loved and welcome without making you feel uncomfortable or singled out.


We know everyone is at a different place on their faith journey.  If you aren't sure what you believe or are investigating spiritual questions we have made Summit Church a safe place to explore faith for the first time.


WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?

We have childcare and kid's church in the 9:15 & 10:45 services from birth to 5th grade.  Just turn right in the foyer and walk your kids to the Family Life Center in the north wing of the building.


We also have a cry room located near the restrooms with audio/video of the services for nursing mothers and small children. 

ENGAGING  &  INSPIRING

What We Believe


Our prayer for every gathering is that you would feel welcomed and loved and that you wouldn’t leave the building thinking about how cool our artwork was, how funny the preacher was, or how awesome the guitar player in the band was. We want you to leave our gathering amazed at God’s radical love expressed through the finished work of Jesus Christ.


Our Ministries


We have a vast array of programs for you and your family to get involved in or serve with.  Each age group has opportunities to worship the Lord and study His Word in various arenas.  Check out the areas of interest and contact the people listed for more information or to explore how you may serve within these ministries


Small Groups


A small group ministry, Life Groups, are designed to connect people with one another in order to lift each other towards  Christ.  Each group should be a safe place for all persons to find real answers. These answers are not provided by an "answer person" but rather through the collective life stories of the members. The main goal is that people are lifted towards Christ!
