Our New Facility
Now the word of the Lord came to Solomon, “Concerning this house that you are building, if you will walk in my statutes and obey my rules and keep all my commandments and walk in them, then I will establish my word with you, which I spoke to David your father. And I will dwell among the children of Israel and will not forsake my people Israel.”
So Solomon built the house and finished it.
-1 Kings 6:11-14
Summit Community Church has known from the beginning - when Southcoast Community Church and South Gorham Baptist Church merged in 2018 - that we wanted to be the kind of church that was open way more often than Sunday mornings. The kind of church that was outreach-focused with the kind of building that is open and inviting to the community.
Finally, after many years of exploration, planning, and prayer, Summit Community Church is endeavoring to build a new facility in Gorham. While the facility itself has had numerous iterations and revisions, two critical components haven’t changed: Summit will have a home and Gorham will have a friend.
Through partnerships with Moody’s Collision Center, Great Falls Construction, and Norway Savings Bank, Summit has secured land and begun the process of making the foundational vision a reality.
The new facility will have a sanctuary space for church services that will double as a regulation-sized basketball court for community rental. We will have a children’s wing for church use that will be a daycare during the week. We will have a youth room for our teens that can be rented by community members for meetings and functions. And, with a commercial kitchen on site, we believe that there will be lots of ways for Summit to enjoy its new home and serve the community of Gorham.
We continue to be astounded by the ways that God has opened doors for this project to continue despite a worldwide pandemic, soaring construction costs, and endless hurdles. We can’t believe we get to do this and we’re so glad you’re here with us as we follow God’s leading into this next phase of Summit.
Join us Sunday, October 16th as we pledge to faithfully give towards Summit’s new home at 26 Cressey Road in Gorham. We are calling our capital campaign Building Together.
As one, united church, we are believing God will prepare the way and provide the resources to build a new facility where Summit can build God’s kingdom together!

Pave The Way - Brick Fundraiser
Brick purchases will help us with so many things: furniture, fixtures, kitchen equipment, etc. Each brick is available for purchase at $100. If you want to, you can include a message on each brick you buy. For example, you can dedicate it to someone, share a brief message, or part of your favorite verse.
Our goal is to sell 300 bricks to be used in a future prayer garden at the new location. We invite you to be a part of the future of Summit. This is indeed a great undertaking, and one that we pray honors God.
