holy week

Holy Week is the last week before Easter and  begins with Palm Sunday.  Traditionally, Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus's entry into Jerusalem riding on a colt and as was noted by the crowds present who shouted praises and waved palm branches.  Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, where Christ gives the new covenant found in Holy CommunionGood Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and his subsequent death in this Tenebrae service. 

Easter Happenings

He is Risen. Alleluia. We have many opportunites to celebrate our Risen Lord at Summit of Peace for you and for your family. Below you find information about our Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt, our worship Services, and our Easter Breakfast. You are welcome to attend any event or service.

  • Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt

    March 31st - 9 am

    Please Bring your own Baskets, all are welcome
    At Summit of Peace we are going on a hunt for Jesus! This year at our Special Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt, kids will be paired in groups with the youth and will use Bible clues to find the next station! Each station will have a mini-lesson, a craft, and a prize, including of course some candy! If you have a bible, you're welcome to follow along with the clues, but don't fret if you don't bring one! The youth will be helping the kids through the various stations making a more meaning hunt. There will also be an Easter Egg Hunt to follow.

  • Sunrise Easter Service

    April 1st - 6:30 am

    Central to the Christian faith is the belief that Jesus proved that he was who he claimed to be by rising from the dead. Without this miracle Jesus is just another false messiah – deluded into believing he was the son of God and foolishly giving his life to save the world. But the resurrection proves that Jesus’ death rescued us all and that his mission to restore God’s creation has begun. Best of all, Jesus taught that, because he lives, we shall live also! He is the “first fruits” of all who believe. We too will one day rise again!

Foolish Things Christians Believe

New April Sermon Series! In this series that begins on Easter Sunday AND April Fools’ Day, we will explore five things that are central to what Christians believe but seem foolish to the rest of the world. Paul put it well in our theme verse for the series:

 

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God! 

1 Corinthians 1:18

 

During this series we will explore five aspects of the “message of the cross” – the story of God’s love and grace for those who are being saved. We will look at how these foolish concepts – at least from a worldly view – are the very core of our faith.
