Congrats to Our New Grads!

Seniors, you’ve graduated from high school during especially unusual circumstances this year. How crazy is it to finish school online and not be able to slip on that robe and mortarboard and walk across a stage for your diploma? 2020 grads—you will always have a story to tell! We congratulate you for your resilience and pray for you as you launch into a world full of unknowns.

WEDNESDAY ZOOM RALLIES

RED-LETTER JESUS // BLACK-LETTER JESUS

Ever seen one of those Bibles that prints all the things Jesus said in red? In between those red letters are the actions of Jesus, printed in black. During Jesus’ time on earth, he said some really important things that exposed truth, challenged evil and invited people in. Jesus also did incredible things to help, heal and invite. This summer, we’re taking a closer look at what Jesus said and what Jesus did—and why, if you let them, those red letters and black letters can change your life.

Wednesdays, June 17-July 29 / 7–8pm
Zoom Link HERE.

Each Wednesday, we’ll get together on one Zoom call to connect, have some fun, worship, and have some discussion around the week’s talk.

Summit Studies

We care deeply about the pain our friends of color are experiencing in this season—and in so many seasons before. That’s why this summer we’ve decided to focus our small group studies on two books we believe will help students better understand issues of race and care for our brothers, sisters and neighbors. We hope students will choose to join one of these opportunities to learn and grow together. If interested, email sam.townsend@calvarychurch.us or text 952.484.5337.

STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism & You
by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi
Discussion led by Jenna and Andrew Cleveland

Thursdays, June 18–July 23 / 7–8:30pm
Zoom Link HERE.

Remixed for teenagers from New York Best Times Seller “Stamped from the Beginning,” this book is “not a history book” but will help you understand why so many are so frustrated and tired with current events concerning racial injustice. Through high school-level reading and meaningful conversation, this study is for all students who want to better understand a different perspective.

DISUNITY IN CHRIST: Uncovering the Hidden Forced that Keep Us Apart
by Christena Cleveland
Discussion led by Trevor Limberg

Fridays, June 19–July 24 / 7–8:30pm
No meeting July 3.
Zoom Link HERE.

Written for those who want to lead in ministry, this book looks at the dynamics that keep Christians apart, even when we know we should be united! From a Christian social scientist’s perspective, this book will help you gain tools to overcome the hidden forces that divide us. With college-level reading, this study is for students who want to be challenged toward deeper engagement with others.

Post-Quarantine

Below you will see how our programs will run when we are able to meet publicly again.

There are so many ways for high school students to reach out, connect, serve, and grow, and ultimately honor God. At Summit, you’ll engage with others through small groups, Sunday morning gatherings, Wednesday night groups, service opportunities, retreats, and special events. Behind all the activity is a committed group of adult leaders who journey with you through high school years, graduation, and beyond.

Sunday Morning

September through May, down donuts while hanging out with peers, and tackle tough issues as you study the Bible. Rather than being spoon-fed answers, you’ll learn to think for yourselves, so your faith truly becomes your own.

Sundays, September-May
9am / White Bear Campus / Room 107
10am / Roseville Campus / Rooms 6-7

Wednesday Night

September through May, gather with friends and caring adult leaders to form real connections, talk about life, and discover God’s Word. Wednesday nights combine fun and games, worship, large and small group teaching, and plenty of time for discussion on topics relevant to you.

Wednesdays, September-May
6:30-8pm / Roseville Campus / Rooms 8-10

Special Events

For special event descriptions, dates, and details, we will be updating our Summit activities brochure. Watch for a new brochure to come!
