Well Done, Summitview

You did it, Summitview. Well, okay, God did it — through your generosity, your faith and your desire to advance the gospel in our city and to the nations. The total pledge amount for the 2016-2017 Missions Fund came in at $39,196 (more pledges have come through since the email on May 2). These funds — along with the surplus from last year's fund — will be used to fully fund the operation of the Nepali Children’s Home for the seventh-consecutive year and to help fund CSU dorm scholarships for Rock students.

This Is How We Make Disciples

What does it mean to send laborers into the harvest (Luke 10:2)? First, it means realizing that the local church matters; that all of life is ministry; that the Kingdom is everywhere — in your home, on college campuses, in a wheat field in Nepal. From there, it means trusting God to give us opportunities to build and send workers. For you and me at Summitview, that looks like this:

Love Like Jesus

Missions is the overflow of our delight in God because missions is the overflow of God’s delight in being God. [John Piper]

God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply. [J. Hudson Taylor]

To know the will of God, we need an open Bible and an open map. [William Carey]
