Money, schedules, family to be discussed at Summit’s upcoming dinner meetings


The Summit Church will offer three dinner meetings, Oct. 19, Jan. 11, and May 17, all at 6 p.m., to discuss managing money, dealing with crazy schedules and family. Each meeting will feature a different speaker.

The Rev. John Westlund, campus pastor at Middle Tennessee State University, will speak at the October meeting. Westlund will speak on “What in the World Am I Going to Do About Money?”

He is married to Holly Huggins Westlund and they have three children.

Raymonde Neely will be the speaker on Jan. 11, 2015. Neely is a youth pastor, and coordinator of Delivered Music Festival. He and his wife have a daughter and son. Neely’s topic is “Time.”

Dr. Beth Johnson from Columbia Seminary will be the speaker on May 17, 2015. Johnson says she is interested in the ways the church uses the Bible to think about faith and life.

“I am drawn to exploring how the Pauline letters invite us to reflect about who God is and what Jesus’ death and resurrection mean for human life and society,” she said.

In addition, Johnson has published a number of articles on the New Testament related to families and family values. She will be speaking on “Family.”
