"To know Him & to enjoy Him"

The mission of SURGE is to see students give their lives to Christ and live their lives for God.

Loving God - through biblical teaching, prayer and praise
Loving Others - with real talk and relationships being formed between students and their leaders in small groups
Changing the World - through local and global service and sharing Christ in their schools and communities

SURGE is for students in grades 6-12 and meets every other Sunday at 6:00PM throughout the year.  

We have a dedicated student room complete with couches, multi-media, air hockey and foosball next to a brightly lit gymnasium.  Additionally, we have an expansive campus for outdoor games.  These areas are "home" to SURGE and most special events.

Safety is a priority; therefore, all leaders complete a thorough background check and pastoral approval. 


All SURGE events require a signed permission slip to be on file in the office.  To fill out a permission slip for an upcoming event, please click HERE.  Print a copy and send along with your son/daughter to the event, or scan a copy and send to

And so do we...

Alliance youth

We join with students nation-wide to seek a preferred vision of the future that moves the Kingdom forward on behalf of King Jesus.

Eastern Pa district Youth

We join hundreds of area Alliance students for events like Spring retreats at Lake Champion in Glen Spey, New York.  In 2021 alternate events will be held because the retreat center is closed to public events. 

life conference

Every three years, we meet with thousands of Alliance students at LIFE.  This past July, we sent 6 students and 3 leaders to the conference held in Orlando, Florida.  Next conference will be held in 2022.
