It’s become a tradition to sit in the chapel and write this portion of the annual report. So here we are, after a beautiful Sunday together, reflecting on what’s taken place in our faith community this past year. Despite a continual sense that the world is on a razor’s edge this past year, what comes unmistakably into view is this; OUR GOD IS FAITHFUL!
Nevertheless, in my day-to-day living, even in serving and leading in our church, I forget this at times. Maybe you can relate?
In the scope of history, God’s faithfulness is staggering to consider. Time and time again, through every unknown and around every blind corner, God has proven Himself trustworthy. This year was no exception.
Summit, as we push off the shore of 2021 into 2022, we have no clue what might be ahead of us. But this we do know because our God is with us, we are free to stay the course of the great commission and the great commandment. God will do all the heavy lifting we are incapable of doing.
Simply put, we get to be faithful, knowing our God will be steadfast. May that bring us tremendous peace that surpasses all understanding and a courageous hope to remain focused on seeking first the Kingdom of God together.
Jesus declared he would build his Church and that nothing would ever overcome his plan. So let’s keep betting the farm on that. Thank you for investing your lives (time, relationships, finances, and talents) into our faith community. Summit wouldn’t be the same without your unwavering commitment, generosity and trust. We are better together, and the best is yet to come!
