"One of the principal rules of religion is, to lose no occasion of serving God. And, since he is invisible to our eyes, we are to serve him in our neighbor; which he receives as if done to himself in person, standing visibly before us." - John Wesley

Action Steps to Serving Others

The Summit Church could not do what we do without faithful volunteers. We're thankful that approximately 85% of regular attenders volunteer at least once a month, which means we can accomplish more. If you're looking for a place to get involved, you've come to the right place. We use a three step process for helping someone get involved in volunteering:
1) Take the Spiritual Gift Assessment
2) Learn About Your Gifts
3) Use Your Gifts


Our goal is that most people would be serving somewhere at our church within the first 6 months of attending. Even if you've been around for a while, jump in and begin serving! This is an important part of the DNA at The Summit because God commands us to be involved as a part of the body of Christ. You can check out all the places to serve!

Food Pantry

The North Canton Cares Pantry is driven by a single goal - to do our part in helping provide food to individuals and families.  We strive to build relationships with our guests and do all we can to serve them. Serving at the pantry allows you to meet the needs of people right here in our own community and show them the love of Jesus. You can find more info about the pantry here.

Community Outreach

Reaching into our community by loving, serving, and speaking the good news is not a single "event." We believe one of the purposes of the church is to equip the people of God so that they will go to their homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, and social circles representing Jesus well. This can be enhanced through events sponsored and/or hosted by the church.

Leadership Teams

Although the Summit has several full-time and part-time staff members, it is important to have volunteer leadership to support and help provide direction alongside the staff. These teams (finance and deacon) assist the staff team by serving where needed.
