Christmas Eve Children’s Production filming- today
We started making a video for the Christmas Eve service involving children at Summitview and adults who would like to be involved. The video will be a retelling of the Christmas story from Luke 2 with scripture, singing, and children’s thoughts and responses to the story. We plan to record children during the Sunday school time today and on Sunday, November 17th. If you would prefer for your children not to be involved, please speak with Jack Wuest or Cale Rogers. Also, if your children normally sit in the service and you would like them to be involved, please let us know.

Youth Group Food Drive Scavenger Hunt- this Saturday!
Our Annual Scavenger Hunt will be on November 16th from 3-7pm at the Teele’s House (3010 Grand View Dr., Greeley, CO 80631).
Students will be put into teams and head off into different neighborhoods to collect food for the families in need in our community or give to the Weld County Food Bank. We come back together to see which team won and to eat dinner and fellowship together. We need students to sign up this year to make sure we get a head count for teams. We also need parent drivers to make this event a success. If you are not able to drive, but would like to pitch in, we will need help with food for dinner. Sign-up sheets will be in the lobby for students, parent drivers, and food items needed to feed our great kids after working so hard. If you have any questions, please see Darren or Kathy Teele (303-503-2477).
Everett’s Send-Off Party- Saturday, November 30th
James & Ali Everett (with their 2 boys Henry & Ellis) will be moving oversees to spread the good news of our King in South Asia! They will be living in a city of 18 million people, of whom, less than 1% are followers of the Way. There are many ways you can partner with them as they go, and they would love to talk to you more about those! They leave December 3rd, and have committed to be gone for at least 3 years. They ask that their family at Summitview remember them and lift them up to the Father often that He might become famous in South Asia!
We will have a Send-Off party on Saturday, November 30th from 2-5pm. We would love people to drop in and say goodbye so we can give them all a hug one last time before they leave!
