Ground beakingGround Breaking Event, Sunday February 28, 2016 – This past Sunday we officially broke ground on the new campus additions that are coming at SPC. Pastor Riddle preached a challenging sermon on the work of Nehemiah as he was commissioned by Christ to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.  As we plunged shovels into the earth outside our sanctuary, Pastor Riddle led us in a short devotional and Mr. Whit Howard led us in prayer to dedicate the project to God. We are excited to see what God has in store for us Surfside Presbyterian Church as we move into the future. If you would like to be reminded about the details of this project – Click Here!


Building-Project13-2Building Expansion Commitment Service, March 6th, 2016 – What a glorious day this coming Sunday will be!  During our worship services, we will be given a chance to give from God’s blessing to our Building Expansion project.  We want this offering to be one of great joy for what we believe God will do in the future.   Our desire is that God will move greatly in this project and that it will be a ministry of great glory to God.  You will be getting a letter from Pastor Riddle this week with more details to help you prayerfully prepare for this Sunday.

Elliot WoodallElliot Woodall’s Baptism – On Sunday evening, February 21, 2016, Elliot Woodall, was baptized at City Church in St. Pete Florida.  Former SPC Assistant Pastor Justin Woodall, along with wife Angie, and sons Connor and Owen, left Surfside to two years ago to plant the church in St. Pete.  There were about 50 people attending the service, which meets in a local coffee house.  Del and Pam Waldecki, and Tim and Martha Jo Melton from SPC attended the service.  In the video, you’ll notice that when Pastor Frank Taylor prepares to baptize “Elliot”, Owen stops the action to correct the pastor.  “His name is Baby Elliot” said Owen, excited that he was no longer the baby in the family.  Adorable!  Please continue to pray for the Woodalls and their awesome family.
