Summit is a new United Methodist Church worshipping at the school in east Edmond.

“National “Back to Church Sunday” (www.backtochurch.com) is an initiative that is “inviting America back to church.” It was launched four years ago in response to a survey of 15,000 adults in the United States. In the survey, 67 percent of Americans said a personal invitation from a family member would prompt them to visit a church, and 63 percent said an invitation from a friend or neighbor would cause them to attend a service.
