We want you to take the next steps in pursuing Jesus and engaging his mission. Here’s how you get connected here at Summerside:
Let us know you’re here!
We do our best to make sure that every person who comes to Summerside is welcomed, engaged, and made to feel welcome. But help us out! If you are here, let us know by filling out a contact card. Someone from our staff will follow up to see if we can help in anyway.
Come to Connections 1
Connections 1 is a class that takes place after a Sunday service. Lunch is provided, and it’s an introduction to who we are, and what we’re all about. It’s a great way to connect with other people, hear more about our mission, staff, programs, and philosophy of ministry. Connections 1 takes place every few months. Our next class is Sunday, July 22 @11:45 in the foyer. This includes lunch.
Connections 2 is for those who are considering membership. Our next class is TBA.
Join an “On-Ramp” Group/ Community Group
This is no better way to be a part of this family here than to join a Community Group. We have a mix of different groups that meet at different times, but they all have one purpose: to work out what it means to be ‘God’s People’. This is where the rubber meets the road. Community Groups are small groups (8-12) of people who meet throughout the week to grow together, pray, apply the gospel, encourage, and challenge one another. This is where we do life together. On-Ramp – is a large, open group for anyone interested in getting connected into a Community Group. It’s very much like a Community Group, but less intensive and requires less commitment. There are 2 options for you: 1. Monday evenings – and takes place every other week. The potluck meal begins at 6pm and the evening ends @8pm. If you are interested in this option, please see Pastor Deven or just show up. 2. Tuesday evenings (last date before the Summer break is June 5) – and takes place every other week. The potluck meal begins at 6:10pm and the evening ends at @ 8:15pm. If you are interested in this option, please see Pastor Mark or just show up. On-Ramp – this is like an extended intro to our values, mission, and purpose. For more information on Community Groups, or to find a group to join, fill out the contact card here
*Please note that both On-Ramp groups are taking a break for the summer months, but will resume in the Fall (date to be decided).
Find your place on mission
Church is not a spectator sport. Summerside does not exist to serve you and make you comfortable. We exist to glorify God, make disciples, and share the love of Christ. We want you to find the place where your gifts and abilities can be used to point people to Jesus. Whether that’s here in a volunteer capacity or in your work-place or neighbourhood, our desire to help you grow, develop, and be released to engage the mission for which God is calling you. Become a member! Find a place to serve! Be active in your Community Group as you reach out together. Life is too short to live it for yourself.
Our pastors and elders are passionate about training and equipping the people of Summerside for ministry. If you are looking for a place to use your gifts and serve Jesus, come check us out.
