Yes, that is a kangeroo and a beer. Our pastor has a gift for finding slides that both enhance and distract from his sermon simultaneously - but no one can deny their awesomeness.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving... and pie. We're continuing our current series "Shadows" as a lead up to celebrating Christmas, this week's message is "Something in the Shadows."
Our special music is from John Mayer's most recent album, a song entitled, "Shadow Days."
A couple of things to be aware of:
- We're continuing conversations with various groups and charitable organizations in the community and partnerships are forming... if you'd like to be involved - contact Dwaine or Selma and they will get you connected.
- We're caroling on December 9th at 2:15 pm after the morning service and lunch... at a local assisted care facility. If you're interested in joining, please contact Greg Johnson, and check the website for more details.
- Our Christmas party is shaping up to be a great event. Saturday, December 15th, featuring a dinner starting at 6pm, our own Karen Reiss (harp for the White House) and the group Non Sequitur with upbeat arrangements of Christmas carols and you all can sing along! Bring a friend - this will be a really lovely evening of music and food.
Next week, we're continuing the Shadows messages with Emerging from the Shadows... a look at Old Testament prophecy related to Christmas!
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.
