Benevolence Ministry

At Summitview, we believe it is part of our Christian duty to help meet the physical needs of those within our church family, as well as those from the greater Fort Collins community (Matthew 25:35-36, James 2:15-16, 1 John 3:16-18). One of the primary ways we do this is through our Benevolence ministry.

Summitview’s Benevolence ministry is managed by our deacons. The work of meeting the physical needs of those in our community happens through our Care Groups. These multi-demographic groups consist of Summitviewers who have made themselves available to serve others in a specific ways, including childcare, meal delivery, job and financial coaching, and transportation assistance.

If you would like to join a Care Group, click the button below. If you don’t have an inFellowship account, you’ll have to create one before you can join a Care Group. You can join up to two Care Groups. If you have any questions about the Care Group sign-up process, or need to talk to one of our deacons, send them an email at benevolence@summitview.com.
