Good weekend Surgeons!
Hope you are doing well and enjoying the absolutely spectacular weather in northern Virginia and beyond...
We are wrapping our Strapped series this week with a series of commonly asked questions about financial stuff... there will be some wisdom from Dwaine and some from a video interview with Dave Ramsey... it will all be great.
Our special this week is In the End, by JJ Heller.
Please keep praying that God will do His thing with the people of the Surge. Good things are happening and the stories keep rolling in!
We will have our monthly night of prayer at 5pm at the Barn on May 18th, followed by dinner... and a SAW concert complete with coffee and dessert for anyone who wants to hang around. It's going to be a fun evening, so join us!
Our men's breakfast is moving up a week to the 18th as well, to avoid Memorial Day travel and visitors.
If you don't already have something to do Memorial Day weekend, the Marine Band (and our own Karen Reiss) will be playing Wolftrap at 8pm. It's free, but get there early to get a good seat. 10,000 of your closest friends will be there for the concert, with picnic food in hand, to enjoy some good weather, good music and a great fireworks show afterwards.
Next week we will launch into our Breathless series, picking up in Ecclesiastes for some more of God's wisdom expressing through Solomon. Bring a friend and we'll see you next week!
At The Surge we love doing things together... that includes writing a blog! Here are a few of our main contributing authors:
Amanda is a graduate of the University of Virginia, and is now starting an even better adventure. Her dad, Sam Wright, is the rockstar guitarist in the Surge worship band, and she likes to learn from his musical talent in her own songwriting.
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.
