WELCOME VISITORS!  We are so glad you visited today.  You are important to us!  We hope you will be encouraged by the service today.  If you are visiting for the first time, please fill out the visitor tab from the Welcome Brochure.  You may take it to the Connections Table for a free gift. 

FAMILY SUNDAY:  You are invited to join us after the service for coffee and desserts.  Stay and talk awhile!

THANK YOU!  Thank you to everyone who contributed to our collection for the needy this month!  You are a blessing.  By giving to the poor, we are laying up treasure in heaven!

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH VIOLENCE IN THE USA?  Last week, there was another mass shooting, which included school children.  Last Sunday, Pastor Terry gave a prophetic message from the Lord concerning this issue.  We encourage everyone to listen to it, meditate on it and share it.  You can find "Why is there so Much Violence in the USA" at www.summitchurch.us/sermons.

SHARING JESUS:  We are sharing the gospel through the passing out of tracts.  Pray over your tracts!  Pray that God will direct you to the right people to give them to. Continue to pray for boldness and the direction of the Holy Spirit as you share Christ.  "Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold." 2 Cor 3:12-13  NIV

GIVING:  For your convenience, Summit Church offers online giving and text to give.  You may text the amount you'd like to give to 314-888-9741 or go to summitchurch.us and click "Giving" on the menu bar.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!  We will be decorating the church for Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 3, after the service.  Everyone is invited to join in the fun.  The church will provide lunch.  Please sign up at the Connections Table so we have enough food!

SPECIAL CHRISTMAS FAMILY SUNDAY:  On Sunday Dec. 17, we will have a special service to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  It's a great time to invite friends and family!  After the Children's Church skit, there will be a Christmas Party for the kids in Children's Church.  The service will be followed by refreshments.

NEED PRAYER?  Do you have a need in your life or a loved one you would like prayer for?  You are invited to come to the front of the church, after the service, to have someone pray with you.  

SNOW CANCELLATION POLICY:  If a church service needs to be canceled due to inclement weather, a text will be sent out to the Summit members and a message will be left on the church answering machine.  It will also be listed on KSDK and on ksdk.com. 

CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE:  On Christmas Eve, from 10-11 AM, Summit Church will have a Christmas Candlelight Service.  We encourage you to come, bring your family and honor God for His awesome gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.

PRAYER:  Summit Church's Prayer Life Lines are groups of 2-3 people who join together on a weekly basis on the phone to pray for Summit and its members.  If you would like to become part of a Prayer Life Line at any time, stop by the Connections Table and find out more details.  The results from people joining together in prayer have been wonderful! Prayer Calendars can be found at www.summitchurch.us/Prayer-Calendar.

EASIEST MINISTRY IN THE CHURCH!  Did you know that 70% of Americans are on facebook?  On Summit Church's facebook page, we share the gospel, encouraging thoughts, songs we will be singing and church news.  In less than 5 minutes a day, you can go to Summit Church Fenton on facebook and like and share the posts.  If you've been looking for a way to share the gospel, this would make a great and very easy start!  Be part of our Social Media Team!

Thankfulness

"We would worry less if we praised more. Thanksgiving is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction." 
- Harry Ironside

I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. Ps 69:30 NIV

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. Ps 95:1-2 NIV

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD  is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Ps 100:4-5 NIV

"Thanksgiving is the language of heaven, and we had better start to learn it if we are not to be mere dumb aliens there."
- A.J. Gossip

Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp. Ps 147:7 NIV

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.  Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. Eph 5:3-4 NIV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:6-7 NIV

"Thanksgiving, to be truly Thanksgiving, is first thanks, then giving." Jacob Braude 

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior. 4 1 Tim 2:1-3 NIV
