Encounter

Summerlakes Church exists to encounter in the following ways:

  • With God – through passionate and contemporary worship, we will connect with the Father of all in praise and adoration, allowing His Spirit to lead us into the presence of God, where we can have a “God encounter”. Through personal and corporate prayer, Summerlakes Church will facilitate effective prayer to expand the Kingdom of God and to foster healthy personal relationships with the God of heaven and earth.
  • With each other – through small groups that will develop meaningful and supportive relationships with other believers, to build one another up; to encourage others along their journey of faith; to demonstrate practical love and caring in times of need; to partner in prayer for specific needs.
  • With the community – through meaningful and practical programs, Summerlakes Church will speak to the needs of the local community. Families, marriages, life goals, youth and children will all be areas where we can connect and support the broader community.
