|Please Pray for Central Asia – Sunday Morning Prayer|
Christine posted this on Slack, concerning the country that she has had to leave due to the Taliban.
Please join me in praying for my home and Central Asia. Things have really gotten bad there quickly. The extremist group is quickly taking over the country, invading cities, it is all-out-war. The city that I lived in is surrounded and there is active fighting between the extremist group and the local militia with regular citizens just outside the city. This has been escalating ever since I left, but is really bad now. My team has evacuated, our whole country wide team actually. My friends there are very afraid, especially women. My friend Star is very worried about their family, because they are from the people group who is the enemy of that extremist group and they’ve been associated with a foreigner. They’re too poor to have even been able to take a taxi to my side of the city much less leave the city or get to another country. In some places the extremist group demands families give one of their daughters to them…
Can you imagine being stuck in that situation with no way out? Yet there is hope, only in Him.
I am confident our Father is at work for good in all this and there are many who will turn to Him in the fear and hopelessness, that local believers will be stronger in faith and greater in numbers. Please join me in praying.I’m doing fine, btw, don’t worry about me. I have accepted that I cannot return to my home and the people I love so dearly at this time and likely not for a long time, but He has somewhere else for me to be to continue to be a part of these dear people turning to Him. Still grieving and processing, lots of loss, but much in prayer and confident in Him. His Name be glorified!
Please join us THIS Sunday as we pray together during our morning prayer starting at 8:30am as well during the service.

|Sunday School Plans for the Fall- Sept 5th|
We are gearing up for Children’s Ministry this fall and are excited about providing a teaching time for elementary age kids before the service and childcare and a toddler/preschool class during the service:
Gospel Project class for ages 5-5th grade before the service (9-9:30)
Nursery/Toddler/Preschool classes for ages infant – 5 yrs old
This is a change from our former Gospel Project program that was done during the church service. As part of this change we are excited to announce that David and Natalia Turner will be joining the Taylor’s and the Wuest’s as Children’s Ministry Coordinators!! The Wuest’s and Taylor’s will coordinate the Gospel Project before the service and the Turners will be heading up children’s ministry during the church service!
Upcoming Children’s ministry dates:
August 15- sign up for Nursery and Toddler volunteers and teachers
August 22 – sign up for volunteers and teachers
August 29 – 5th Grade Graduation (If you have an upcoming 6th grader we will be honoring them after the service as they leave the Sunday school program and move into youth group)
It is a joy to minister to the lives of young ones at Summitview and we are blessed to have the privilege of teaching them!
In Christ’s love,
Joey & Robin Taylor, Jack & Kelli Wuest, and David & Natalia Turner

Events are definitely back!! YAY!
Unfortunately, my intern’s last day is August 4th before most of the events. And so, I am looking for one or two volunteers to “man” a table with me.
We will be handing out promotional items and letting people know about our no-cost services. There will be a tent and chairs at every event. All you would need to bring is a smile, water, and a snack! If you are only able to be there a part of the time, that is totally fine! I will be at the table the whole time, so I can take any hard questions. 🙂
