Why do I need to reserve my seats?

Our space is limited in order for us to maintain social distancing, so we are asking each family to book their seats in advance. We don’t want to turn anyone away! Your information will not be shared with anyone. 

Do I have to wear a mask?

In accordance with the Washington State mandate, we are asking everyone in attendance over the age of five to wear a mask over their mouth and nose throughout the duration of our service time and to practice social distancing.

What other safety precautions is Summit View taking?

We’re doing everything we can to create a safe, loving environment.  

  • Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building.  
  • We will also regularly clean high-touch surfaces throughout the morning and in between services (delete if you only have one).  
  • In the auditorium, we’ve arranged our seating to maintain social distancing and are asking that family units leave three open seats between them. 
What should I do to prepare for Sunday?

You can help us love others well in these ways, but you’re not limited to this list! Together we can find creative ways to tangibly show the love of Christ. 

  • In accordance with the Washington State mandate, we are asking everyone in attendance over the age of five to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Please keep your mask on both indoors and outdoors and make sure your mouth and nose are covered. 
  • Please refrain from hugging or shaking hands in order to maintain social distancing. 
  • Please monitor your own health and the health of your family.

  • Consider your risk. If you are part of our vulnerable population such as the elderly and immunocompromised, we strongly encourage you to continue worshipping with us online. 
What can I expect when I arrive on Sunday?

When you arrive on Sunday, you’ll be greeted from a distance by our greeter team. Please have your confirmation email ready to show our greeters. You’ll be asked how many seats you reserved as you’re welcomed inside. 

  • As you come inside, an usher will help you find your seat in one of the open rows. Ware asking each family unit to leave three vacant seats between them to allow for proper social distancing.  
  • Plan to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure ample time to find your seats. If you have not arrived 10 minutes after the service starts, we’ll assume something came up and we will share your reserved seats with others. 
What about SV Kids?

Currently, our services are family-style, so please include your children in your booking to ensure we have enough room. We will have things available to keep kids busy during the service.

RECOMMENDED VIEWING ON RIGHT NOW MEDIA

With-Ness (2019 Right Now Conference) – Matt Chandler

The Christian life is first and foremost an act of following. Discipleship begins with shouldering the cross of Christ and settling into his footsteps. After all, it’s his church, it’s his mission, and it’s his Way we walk. Let’s shoulder only the burden he’s placed on us and find—in him—rest.

The Art of Neighboring – Dave Runyon

Luke 10:27 – “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Jesus taught us to love God and our neighbor as ourselves… but can our neighbors say there is a noticeable difference in us? We hear it a lot, yet many of us have lost connecting to it. What if we took this command seriously and literally? What would our neighborhood and city look like if we did?

Secret Church 3: How to Study the Bible – David Platt

In Secret Church 3, David Platt provides a condensed training course in how to study the Bible. We’ll consider why this one book is so critical to our faith, and we’ll get answers to questions like, Why do we study the Bible? Who can study the Bible? How do we study the Bible? To answer this last question, a dependable approach to studying the Bible is explained and then applied to the different genres—letters, Gospels, parables, narratives, etc.—of Scripture.

MLK 50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop – John Perkins

The 50th anniversary of King’s tragic death marks an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the state of racial unity in the church and the culture. It creates the occasion to reflect on where Christians have been and look ahead to where we must go as we pursue racial unity in the midst of tremendous tension.

PSALM 46: Linger Conference 2016 – JR Vassar

In this 41-minute session, JR Vassar, Senior Pastor of Church at the Cross in Grapevine, TX, teaches Psalm 46 in light of Jesus’ death on the Cross. He highlights that Jesus had the message of this psalm stripped away from Him in His death so we could sing it forever.  

Breaking Free from Strongholds – Eric Mason

A Stronghold is a mindset, value set, or thought process that hinders our growth. Much of this stems from us being recovering unbelievers. Eric Mason, Lead Pastor of Epiphany Fellowship in Philadelphia, explains how strongholds of unbelief keep believers from maximizing their potential in God in all areas of their life.   

When the Wilderness Is His Will (2019 Right Now Conference) – Jada Edwards

Part of what makes following God’s will so difficult sometimes is the times we feel stuck or lost. Detours for us are original plans to God. When life seems uncertain, even when detours and delays take place, God still has our ultimate destination secured. If we are here to give God glory, God sometimes uses periods of uncertainty to do just that.

The Gospel-Shaped Life – Tim Keller

A gospel-shaped life will be culture setting. The gospel takes burdens off. Burdens of the past, of guilts, and fears of the future. A gospel-shaped life is a life of humility—a right understanding of who we are in light of grace. Secularism makes people selfish, and religion makes people tribal, but the gospel makes people fulfilled and selfless at the same time. Tim Keller in this session reminds us to focus on God’s work in our life through grace, and life selflessly toward others.  

Studying Scripture and Finding Jesus – Al Mohler

Al Mohler, the President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, looks at Jesus’ claims about Himself in the book of John to create a vivid picture of Jesus throughout the course of all of redemptive history. Of all things that point to Jesus’ ability to save the world, the whole Scriptures are the most crucial. Mohler warns us of the  temptation to teach the Bible as simply moralistic, or giving us good or bad examples to follow or reject. The Scriptures point to Jesus and to His work on our behalf in advancing God’s mission of redeeming the broken world.

Crazy Love – Francis Chan

What we do with our life, and our things matters. Doing things God’s ways leads to fulfillment. God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts – it’s falling in love with God. 

One Life with a Global Gospel – David Platt

How do we live our lives with a global gospel perspective? The American Dream invites us to trust in yourself and will make much of ourselves. It promises that we will be recognized by others for what we are,  you can have it all. Yet, the Scriptures call us to have a Gospel Dream… the gospel has radically different priorities, and we are being conquered by a gospel dream, realizing that the last thing the gospel tells us to do is trust in ourselves, look into ourselves, believe in ourselves. The gospel says, Crucify yourself. We follow a Savior who said, “Apart from me, you can do nothing.”

When You Believe in God but Pursue Happiness at Any Cost – Craig Groeschel

You believe in God, attend church when’s it’s convenient, and you generally treat people with kindness. But, have you surrendered to God completely, living every day depending upon the Holy Spirit? Does God want you happy or holy? Are these two things at odds with each other? In this session, Pastor Craig teaches us that happiness is based on the goodness of God.

Psalm 119 – Matt Chandler

The only way we get anywhere in life is through an honest understanding of our starting point. This is just as true for road trips as it is for our relationship with Jesus Christ. He knows us better than we know ourselves so pretending to be something we are not is a futile effort. In this session, Pastor Matt Chandler helps us understand what it means to live a blessed life. Matt described Psalm 119 as a shadow of what has come in the person and work of Jesus Christ. We do not gain the blessed life through works of our own, but through the finished work of Jesus Christ, which is credited to us by faith. A disciplined reading of God’s Word will ultimately lead us to the Word made flesh—Jesus.

Building a Christian Conscience – R.C. Sproul

What exactly is the conscience? Many would describe it as a God-given inner-voice that lets us know when we are doing something wrong. Some modern thinkers have called it an evolutionary defect—a sort of a misinformed internal tyrant that we must learn to overcome. Whatever it is, we all have one. But are all consciences created equal? Do consciences inform us or do we inform them? Dr. Sproul gives us insight into these questions as he considers “The Question of Conscience.”

Marriage in Light of God’s Glory – Francis & Lisa Chan

We often misunderstand what the purpose and goal of marriage is. When we gain the proper understanding that we are here for a brief period of time, it changes everything about our lives; that we should invest our marriages and family and in things that matter for eternity. In all that we have and do, in our marriages and family, do we keep God first, or is he simply a character in the background of our lives? In this video Francis Chan and his wife Lisa speak to how one can create a Christ-centered, eternity-minded marriage.

When Should Christians Engage In Civil Disobedience –Tim Keller, John Yates, and Al Mohler

God commands us to submit to those in authority. Submit to your government and ruling authorities, but be faithful to God first. As some seeing our government as drifting away from God, some Christians propose civil disobedience as a proper response. When should Christians engage in civil disobedience? Christian leaders and pastors Tim Keller, John Yates, and Al Mohler unpack the issue of civil disobedience from a biblical perspective.

What is the Church?
–Mark Dever

The church wasn’t our idea—it was His. Jesus established the church as the natural arena for our spiritual growth, and our health depends on it. In this session Dr. Mark Dever survey the marks of a healthy church, where we are called to display God’s glorious character in unity, holiness, and love. We can’t do it alone.

The Book of Ephesians
–J.D. Greear

As we’ve started our study in the book of Ephesians, we want to encourage you to really take this next season to dig in with us. Not only can you utilize the resources we’ve put out at summitview.net/Ephesians, but also consider review some of the great teaching content available Right Now Media. In this first session from J.D. Greear’s, Pastor J.D. discusses the beautiful presentation of God’s amazing plan found in Ephesians.

The Benefits of Abiding 
–Tony Evans

This week in our study in Ephesians 1:3-6, we learned more about the concept of what it means to be “In Christ”. Paul tells us elsewhere in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” In this session, Pastor Tony Evans speaks more to what it means to live a life that is abiding in Christ. Abiding in Christ is not simply an intellectual exercise or gaining more information about God, but ultimately relating in and communing with God. It’s a matter of experiencing more of Him.

Label Maker – Louie Giglio

Labels matter, and our culture is saturated with them. Some labels are given to us by others, some we place on ourselves. We wear, either in pride or shame, the labels of our accomplishments and failures, our family name, our job titles or stage of life, our popularity or pain. But when we let anything other than our God make claims about who we are, we end up being defined by temporary labels that are as fleeting as the wind. In this sermon Pastor Louie Giglio teaches through Ephesians 1 on understanding what it means to be a co-heir with Christ.

Contentment With Christ’s Body, The Church – Thabiti Anyabwile

When we look at our churches, it’s easy to list the things that we’d change or that we don’t like. But we can find true contentment with our churches if we train ourselves to see God present in our people. He is working constantly both in and through each member of the Body of Christ. This was definitely apparent in how Paul saw the Ephesian church as we saw in our text this week. You see, Paul understood contentment with the church comes from seeing God in the church. In this week’s Right Now Media suggestion, Thabiti Anyabwile, pastor at Anacostia River Church in the Washington, D.C. area, emphasizes the importance of seeing the presence and work of God in the context of the local church.

The Essential Ministry of The Body of Christ – Paul Tripp

This past week we learned about how the grace of God brings us alive. Not only does God’s grace change us for ourselves, but also for the sake of others. In this session, Paul Tripp points out that if we are to live in the Body of Christ as God has called us to, then we automatically become ministers of His grace to each other. Every sin you encounter is an opportunity to participate with God in showing grace to the sinner in the midst of their sin. All too often we view sin against us or around us as a violation of our own perceived rights and rules. Instead, embrace the call to administer God’s grace to those who sin around you. Show them to the God who can and will forgive them and transform them.

Rooting For Rivals
– Peter Greer

As we saw in our passage last week, division is our default. Sin separates, making our differences liabilities. Christ’s atoning death reconciles our differences. In this message from Peter Greer, we hear about what can happen for the Kingdom of God if God’s people see themselves as one, working together. We can accomplish so much more together when we cease competing and rivaling with one another. Peter Greer is President and CEO of HOPE International, a global Christ-centered micro-enterprise development organization serving throughout the world.

Christians In The Age Of Outrage: How To Bring Out Our Best When The World Is At It’s Worst Ed Stetzer 

As Christians, we are to be bridge builders for people to Jesus. Unfortunately many of us are burning the bridges instead. Today there are too many examples of those claiming to follow Christ being caustic, divisive, and irrational, contributing to dismissals of the Christian faith as hypocritical, self-interested, and politically co-opted. What has happened in our society? In this session Ed provides a solution and a new lens in how to see things as we seek to be disciples and disciple makers of Jesus.
