Sid and Kathy Mair are Summit Connect pros… In fact, they got involved from the very beginning – when it was originally called Community Development Initiative – about eight years ago! The Mairs jumped in and led a group that lasted for 18 months. Ever since then, it has been their passion to connect in Christ-centered relationships and help others to do the same. Sid and Kathy believe that the best way to develop real relationships at Summit is through Summit Connect. “We had been involved with other ministries at Summit and we didn’t necessarily get the continuous connection with people until we started with Summit Connect,” says Sid.
If the Mairs could offer one piece of advice to someone looking to join a Connect group, it would be to stick with it. “The important thing is that you don’t give up on Summit Connect,” says Sid. “Make sure you spend the time to get to know people. ‘Date’ or check it out for 8 weeks, but don’t give up if it doesn’t work out.”
Kathy thinks that leading a group is another great option for someone who hasn’t found a group yet. “If you’ve had a hard time finding a group you connect well with, consider leading a group,” she says. “Maybe there are people in the church who are looking for a group just like the one you have in mind!”
Sid and Kathy are committed to helping as many people as they can plug into Christ-centered community. One of their greatest joys is developing tight-knit friendships with people through Summit Connect.
God created us to be in relationships. Sid and Kathy Mair have invested time and energy into developing authentic friendships.
And that’s how they connect.
