Merge Is Getting A New Schedule!

Merge Is Getting A New Schedule!

Merge is getting a few updates to its schedule this fall, and we wanted to share them with you!

Starting Sunday, September 19 Merge will be moving to Sunday mornings! We’ll still be meeting in the Magnolia building, but our meeting time will be from 9:30-10:45 a.m. This doesn’t mean that Sunday Night Merge will be going away, it will just look a bit different. Staring Sunday, September 12 we’ll be having Merge on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 4- 5:30 p.m. The second Sunday will be called Serving 2nd and will be focused on service opportunities and outreach! The fourth Sunday will be known as Fun 4th and will be a fun night that will be great to invite friends to! Our first Fun 4th will be on September 26 and will be Merge Messy Night!

All of these changes came from feedback we received from the parent survey that went out in July. That feedback was taken, shared with the Merge Adult Council, and we started to plan  what a Merge that better serves you could look like!

We hope you’re as excited for these changes as we are, and we can’t wait to start them all with you!

If you have any questions, please email our Assistant Youth Director, Mac Charalambous!

Merge Beach Day June 9

Merge Beach Day June 9

Our Merge Youth Ministries is headed to Ft. DeSoto Park Wednesday, June 9. They will meet at 10 a.m. on our Hyde Park campus then head out to St. Pete Beach. They will return to church for pick up at 4 p.m. Students need to sign-up on our online form for a ride on the bus. We also need an updated Medical Form for students who want to ride the bus. The form needs to be notarized before turning it in. Please bring a towel, modest bathing suite, sunscreen, lunch and snacks for while we are there. This is another great opportunity to invite your friends to meet your Merge friends and have some fun in the sun and waves. We hope to see your students Wednesday morning!
