Surge (6th-8th Grade)

Fig Surge Parent Letter - May 2019

Posted May 6 Alfonso Moreno

Hey Surge Parents,

I am sorry for the delay with this month’s email, we needed to hash out some details before sending this out! As a reminder we still meet on Sundays during the 11:30am Gathering in RM 15, and on Wednesdays from 6:30-8pm in the Fellowship Hall. With the safety of your student in mind, we ask that students be picked up in the northwest parking lot nearest the baseball diamond.

Your Surge students are having a great time. We love seeing their excitement for God’s word and every event that is coming up. This is only increasing their desire to meet, invite friends and encouraging one another. In our approach to keep the encouragement between the students and their leaders going, just as a reminder that I created a Surge Slack account which helps add a level of transparency to their communication, so please encourage your student to request to be added by their small group leaders. Slack is a communication platform that does not require a phone number but instead uses an email. It is accessible via a downloadable app and the Slack web Page.

We are wrapping up our series titled “Master, Mission & Mate.“ Which during this topical series we have covered the questions of Who is God? What is my purpose and design?
