Christmas Eve Children’s Production filming- last day 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 will be recording the children during the Sunday school time today. 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.
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 at the church. We would love people to drop in and say goodbye so we can give them all a hug one last time before they leave!
Toy Store is next week!

November is Homelessness Awareness Month
There are SO many ways we can help during the holiday season as well as all year round to local individuals and families experiencing homelessness in our Greeley/Evans area.
- Cold Weather Shelter- All of their dates to provide and serve a meal are filled! But, they welcome donations to provide for the likely 525 individual folks that go to the shelter for food and lodging during our cold winter months.
- Guadalupe Community Center- They welcome volunteers to prepare & serve (not provide) lunch and dinner EVERY day of the year. They also seek new volunteers to commit to serve one day a month, as well as sporadic volunteering. And, finally, they also welcome monetary donations The women are also collecting monetary donations as we support their “Non-Event Charity Ball” again this year! Look for the donation jar by the tithe box.
- Baird Survival Bags- See the information below and grab a flyer by tithe box to provide items to fill the bags. And talk with Dusty Kraft if you have questions.
Contact Rebecca Andrews if you are interested in more information.
Join Dusty Kraft with ‘Baird Survival Bags’
The Baird Survival Bag was kick started in November 2016 to help out a homeless man named Terry; a 35 year old man who stood by the entrance of a 7-11 during the coldest days of winter opening doors for customers asking if he could have a warm cup of coffee, always polite, with a big smile on his face. Alan Baird, Dusty’s co-worker at Realty One Group, wanted to help him get back on his feet and onto the road to success. That’s when the Baird Survival Bag was created.
Dusty will be collecting items to help those that are less fortunate and are living on the streets. This year, Alan’s goal is to pass out 250 bags. The best part is they are going to be giving away 30 bags up here in the Greeley area. See the insert for a list of items to donate and the link below to the GoFundMe page if you’d rather give monetarily
