Open Life Sumner at Sumner Family Church

Serving the community of Sumner 


Open Life Sumner launched in December of 2012 as Living Hope.  A fun experiment to do two names, but after a couple years, we decided to just go with Open Life Sumner.  We think Sunday Nights fits the rhythm of Sumner well, so watch the video and come join others from your city for a great service and find out how you can help where it hurts in your city and world.

OPEN LIFE SUMNER | Sumner Middle School

Open Life Sumner meets every Sunday at 5pm at Sumner Family Church we have a great service and amazing kids spaces for nursery, preschool and elementary ages. All other ages will love the main service, trust us!

Open Life is 7 years old, you can read the full story HERE. In just a short amount of time people have come together to regularly serve 400 people across two communities. Our understanding of the Jesus mission is uncomplicated, people leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus. The role of the church is not to complicate your life with empty rituals, but un-complicate your life through connecting, serving and sharing. We know that going to a new place can be intimidating and scary, kinda like a first date, but don’t worry, there are tons of people who are new here and are experiencing the same emotions you are. Please know we will make every effort to ensure that your experience is worry-free. We look forward to connecting with you.


what is a service like?



The band will play some loud music.




Someone will come up to pray and say hi.




A pastor will give a talk.


We’ll put connect cards and giving envelopes in the really snazzy white buckets that look like they were designed to hold fried chicken. If you use the app you can fill out the connect card HERE and give HERE all within your phone or tablet.




After about 70 minutes, it’s over…just make note of the time when everyone starts to leave. That’s the end of the service. If you would like prayer, there will be someone up front to pray with you at this time.
