Friday Update - 07/29

I am sending this email to give everyone a quick reminder about everything going on at Surprise Christian Church.


Backpack drive for the Dysart Community Center

You guys are amazing! We officially crossed our goal of 100 backpacks last weekend with 112! We have another 18 since then bringing us to at least 130. If you forgot and you still have a backpack, don't worry! Brad and I are delivering backpacks on Monday so you can still bring one in this Sunday. 

Service day at Valley View Community Foodbank

We have a service day at Valley View Community Foodbank coming up tomorrow! If you signed up to serve, you should have received an update email from Brad with time and location. If you have any questions, email Brad at

If you didn't get a chance to sign up for this event, don't worry! There will certainly be more opportunities to get involved. 

Open Mic Weekend

We will be having an open mic weekend this Sunday! If you haven’t been with us when we have done one of these before, what we do is we open a Sunday service for a Q and A style service. Instead of having a typical sermon, I take y’all’s questions and do the best I can to give practical, biblical answers. Look forward to that this Sunday and bring your questions!

Pool Party

We have our annual pool party coming up on August 20th from 6:30-8:30. We will be renting out the Surprise Aquatic Center (15831 N Bullard Ave, Surprise, AZ 85374).

The agenda is to have fun! The hope is to celebrate a few baptisms, as we do every year, as a church family. If you would like to be baptized at the event, get in contact with me at

We are asking you to bring a dessert of some kind, be creative! I hope to see you guys there.
