Surge Weekend

Surge Weekend registration is now closed. Please email JohnMarshall@FirstOrlando.com with questions.

Surge Weekend is an overnight weekend conference for students from 6th-12th grade. We combine high-energy large group worship and teaching sessions with small group discussion and fun activities for our students and leaders to enjoy and grow in community. Surge Weekend is the perfect opportunity for teenagers to be inspired, encouraged, and equipped to follow Jesus and lead others to do the same in their neighborhoods, schools, and teams.

WORSHIP

MAIN SESSIONS

At Surge Weekend, students will have the opportunity to participate in powerful worship sessions with hundreds of other students at First Orlando’s John Young Campus. During each session, students will not only experience high-energy music by Liberty Worship Collective, but will also be inspired by Biblical messages from guest speakers who will be bringing a message specifically for teenagers.

Small Group Time

Groups at Surge are age and gender-specific, and designed to connect and engage students in life-giving friendships. These groups will be led by our adult leaders, who help facilitate Christ-centered small group conversations and help provide the opportunity for the bugger main sessions to become small and more personal.
