If you're new here... welcome!
We're continuing our Blue Collar series, today's message is called, God the Dad.
Our special is I Won't Grow Up, from the Broadway Musical "Peter Pan"... and I'm hoping Emily will fly out over the room - we'll see how that goes.
Please remember we have offering boxes in the back of our service and we're dependant on your generosity to fund our mission here at the Surge. If you're visiting, let the service be our gift to you.
If you're a songwriter or performer, SAW is running a songwriting workshop on the second Saturdays at the Barn, where experienced artists will review your song and offer suggestions. That starts at 4pm... followed by an open mic beginning at 7pm.
Our third Saturday concerts are still alive and well! Saturday, August 18th, will see a pair of musical trios with fantastic music, dessert, coffee, laughter and a lovely evening. Bring a friend, you won't regret it. If you have any questions about what's going on, we're putting all of our events online in our calendar. It's under the Home tab > Calendar of Events.
We are providing Longfellow Middle School kids with backpacks again this year. This is a wonderful opportunity to love on some families in our area. If you have any questions about that, ask Dwaine or E and they can get you connected.
We're continuing our Blue Collar series next week, with a message called God the Alarm Clock. Sleeping during the first part of this message will actually be encouraged :)
That's it - have a great week!
At The Surge we love doing things together... that includes writing a blog! Here are a few of our main contributing authors:
Our fearless leader, Dwaine is the lead pastor at The Surge. His experience in counter terrorism with the CIA prepared him for ministry and he likes dogs and babies even more than E does.
E (short for Eric Reiss) is the Wingman at The Surge and likes dogs, music, Mexican food, his wife Karen and his little girl Evangeline... not necessarily in that order.
