Waterford CAMPUS HISTORY
In January 2010, Summit Waterford began meeting in the South Meeting Room at the Herndon campus and establishing a community that was willing to “Go Local” and be part of a new extension of the Summit family. In March, the campus moved to Lawton Chiles Elementary School, and in February of the following year, Summit Waterford opened its doors at a brand-new facility on Lake Underhill Road.
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.

Waterford Campus Stories
Robin had spent four months considering joining the Base Camp team, but says that she could always find reasons to put off taking “the plunge”. But once she made the decision to volunteer, it was clear to those of us already serving that she had all the characteristics that we look for in a Base Camp leader.
Sitting on the floor in a circle, holding coffee cups and wearing their volunteer shirts, the elementary small group leaders at our Waterford 11 a.m. service had gathered for their weekly team meeting. I casually made a suggestion that was met with great enthusiasm— a goodbye book for the Rapp family. As we discussed the details that morning, Ezekiel Rapp came bounding into the room, early as usual and too excited to wait. He tapped the shoulders of Ms. Sierra, his special-needs-buddy, and his small group leaders. He was eager to play.
There’s something I’ve seen starting to take shape at Summit that I wish everyone who attends or even works at Summit could see. I’m almost certainly just getting a small glimpse of it, but what I’m talking about is the collective effect of someone giving their time and talents in multiple ministries within the church.
