HERNDON CAMPUS HISTORY
After three years of meeting in clubhouses, at Aloma Cinema Grill, and at Winter Park High School, Summit moved into its first permanent location on September 11th, 2005. What was once the old AMC theatre just off Colonial Drive near the Fashion Square Mall became our Herndon campus. Over the coming years, the congregation has grown exponentially, leading to the birth of new campuses and a vision for multisite as a means of reaching more people and forming new communities all over the Orlando area.
WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE HERE
At Summit, we want you to know that you are completely welcome as you are. You'll notice this in everything from the smiling faces who greet you at the doors, to the Prayer Team ready to stand alongside you in prayer after service. If you have any questions—ranging from "where's the water fountain?" to "how can I get connected in community here?"— track down one of our amazing First Impressions volunteers. They're the friendly-looking ones in the white name-tags and are eager to help you out!
Modeled after the early church, we have a rotating team of teachers. As a result, attendees get the unique opportunity to hear the same sound, biblical truth from more than one voice.
From week to week, you will hear multiple bands with distinct musical styles. Each band plays a mix of updated hymns along with current worship music. Songs are carefully chosen to celebrate God’s character as we prepare to hear his truth and respond to his call.
WHAT TO WEAR
When you walk in the doors at Summit, you’ll see a wide variety of clothing choices. Some folks will be in shorts and flip-flops while others will be wearing dresses and ties! Wear whatever feels right for you—we want you to be comfortable here and what’s most important is that you come to worship God, lean in, and listen to what he has to teach you.

For about as long as Summit has existed, we've been about cultivating lifestyles of service, and wouldn't you know it, we've come up with another way to do exactly that! We're taking what you know as niceSERVE (a church-wide service day) and extending it to a church-wide service week!
During the month of May, we will be celebrating Infant Baptism and Dedications. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." -Matthew 19:14

Herndon Campus Stories
If you find yourself with the opportunity to sit down with new Herndon Campus Minister, Jeff Bell, and hear all the things God has been up to in bringing Jeff and his family to Summit, you should absolutely take that chance. I say that up-front because I know I won’t be able to do the story justice, but, as Jeff told me, “It would be impossible to discredit the providence of God in this.”
It’s not at all a secret that growing up is rough. If you’ve already managed to survive your teenage years, you know that it’s a chunk of your life that was challenging, awkward, and at times just flat out brutal. And unfortunately you probably have the pictures of you and your frosted tips to prove it.
