Missions & Outreach


The second Saturday of September every fall Summerdean puts on one of the largest chicken barbecues in the Roanoke area. People come from all over the valley to get a taste of the slow cooked barbecue chicken, baked potatoes, cole slaw, rolls, and numerous choices for dessert. There is a dine-in or take out option. A half chicken meal costs $9 and a quarter chicken meal costs $6. Summerdean makes no profit off of this event, as we give all of the money we make to a mission organization. Come join us for a fun-filled day of fellowship and good eats.


Summerdean Church of the Brethren's orphan ministry desires to see the Church recognize and respond to the needs of orphans, both domestic and international, understanding that the church is God's plan for the orphan. The Project 127 ministry was born out of a desire to educated, encourage and equip the Body of Christ to care for orphans through adoption, foster care, and global orphan care. For more information on this ministry contact Lynsey Stultz at aclmstultz@gmail.com.

"Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." (James 1:27)
