you cannot make it one surface. nurbs dont allow that. the easiest is to select all pieces, and globally stitch them together. you probably want to change the stich smoothness tangent or normal - this keeps the surfaces smooth even if they get a little bit seperated (e.g. while animating).

and you have to make it 3d yet - your surfaces are flat in your file
