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.
SPRING CLEAN UP DAY: Once or twice a year, we ask for volunteers to help deep clean the church. The next date this Saturday, April 1, from 9-12. We will be working inside and outside. Bring your cleaning supplies and yard tools! Come and join the fun!!! Refreshments will be served.
CHURCH PRAYER: One of the basic functions of church life is to join together in prayer. We will be praying together on Wednesday, April 5, at 7 PM. Everyone is welcome!
LADIES: We have a luncheon planned at Sister's Tea House in Fenton on Saturday, April 22 at 11:30 AM for ladies and teenage girls. We're going to have some great sister time! The church will pay for lunch for teenage girls who attend Summit. Sign up at the Connections Table if you plan to attend. We will be ordering off the menu; no payment is due to sign up.
ADOPT AN ISLAND: Adopt-an-Island is a volunteer program that helps with the maintenance of the landscaping areas of the church grounds, mainly weeding. Volunteers choose an area and commit to keep the area weeded weekly throughout the growing season. This program does not require you to purchase anything. Commitments can also be made for shorter periods of time or to help when someone goes on vacation. We need lots of helpers! Info fliers are on the Connections Table. See Pastor Diane if you are interested.
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

DOING A GOOD WORK~HELPING PEOPLE
THE LORD'S SUPPER
For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. 1 Cor 11:23-26 NIV
The Lord's Supper has been greatly instrumental in keeping His cause alive. It is the voice of all believers preaching the Lord's death till He come. He who believes that the Lord did come and die for us, and will come again and take us to Himself, and will not hesitate to regard this last request of our Lord and Saviour. -Charles Deems D.D.
The purpose of the Lord's Supper is to receive from Christ the nourishment and strength and hope and joy that come from feasting our souls on all that He purchased for us on the cross, especially His own fellowship. -John Piper
Surely there is fitness in the institution of the Lord's Supper as a standing memorial by which the church at large may commemorate the grandest act, and by which the heart of each individual believer may be reminded of his dearest friend. You, who have learned to love the Saviour, will prize His ordinance for the Saviour's sake. You who rejoice in the salvation purchased by His dying, will not fail with gratitude and faith to show the Lord's death until He come. -William Morley Punshon
No doubt a man may be saved, like the penitent thief, without having received the Lord's Supper. It is not a matter of absolute and indispensable necessity, like repentance, faith, and conversion. But it is impossible to say that any professing Christian is in a safe, healthy, or satisfactory condition of soul, who habitually refuses to obey Christ and attend the Lord's Table. -J. C. Ryle
Let us think of a Christian believer in whose life the twin wonders of repentance and the new birth have been wrought. He is now living according to the will of God as he understands it from the written Word. Of such a one it may be said that every act of his life is or can be as truly sacred as prayer or baptism or the Lord's Supper. To say this is not to bring all acts down to one dead level; it is rather to lift every act up into a living kingdom and turn the whole of life into a sacrament. -Aiden Wilson Tozer
