Summit Baptist Association

We have an associational team going to Canton on July 9 - 16. The plan is to travel Saturday July 9, worship with the church we will be working with(Summit) and working Monday - Friday and traveling home Saturday. This is a trip open to families and we ask that no one under 18 go without a parent or appointed guardian. We will do mostly construction. We have not confirmed lodging yet so we don't have a trip cost. Previous cost was $300 and we don't anticipate it being more. We have had four of our associational churches take their own church groups. Sparrow Swamp, Hoffmeyer Road, Calvary and South Florence all had successful trips. If you have a group that wants to go, allow us to help you in coordinating the trip.

 January 2013, we entered into partnership with the Summit Baptist Association in Akron Ohio. Our work started with a successful trips to the Martin Center in Canton and Central Baptist Mission. We were also able to visit and speak in some of the Summit Baptist churches while there! We have since worked with Aurora, Crestview, Broadman, and several more.

We will post dates and update information soon.

Project Type: Backyard Bible Clubs, Sports Camp, Youth Events, Servant Evangelism, Community Event, Surveys, Prayer Walking, Musical Performance, Evangelism

Additional Project Description: We are looking for creative ideas to reach out to families with kids. Maybe you have done a successful outreach in your town that you might be able to help us replicate here in Medina? We are a small, slowly growing church in a town of about 26,000 people. This is basically a church that is going through a phase of revitalization. Four years ago we were down to about 20 in attendance on a Sunday mornings. We have built that up to the 50-60 range. Still so much to do! We have several neighborhoods right around the church building that are fairly diverse in population from government housing and lower income apartments, to retirement patio homes, to single family ranches, to suburban homes worth 250,000-300,000. Medina is mostly a bedroom community with many who live here that work in Cleveland (25 miles away) and Akron (20 miles away). Over the past couple of years we have held a sports camp in a local park with the help of missions teams from South Carolina. We also had 2 other teams come to Medina to do VBS, Surveys, Prayer Walking, a Dodgeball Tournament for outreach to local teens. We have a team coming from Missouri to help us with VBS this year. For downtime, teams have all kinds of opportunities = Cedar Point amusement park, major and minor League sports events, site seeing in Cleveland and Lake Erie, Swimming, Canoeing, Amish Country, etc.

We can provide advertising support and likely a handful of people (if the activity is done during the daytime - more in the evening) to help with the outreach and maybe some materials or supplies?
