More than a dozen area churches joined together to benefit Lee’s Summit Social Services at a community block party called SummitFest on June 14.

More than 2,000 people gathered at the Legacy Park amphitheater for live music, kids activities and a strength demonstration from Team Xtreme. The event raised more than $2,000 for Lee’s Summit Social Services in addition to 14 large barrels of non-perishable food.

This was the first year for SummitFest, a joint effort from these area churches:

Grace Pointe Community Church

Discover Church

Harvest Baptist Church

New Summit Presbyterian

Lee’s Summit First Church

Abundant Life

First Baptist Church of Lee’s Summit
