Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.
FORGE is our ministry for middle and high school students. Each week as we gather, we focus on three things: Bringing, Building, and Burning. We want our teens to be invitational and for FORGE to be a place where they'll want to BRING their friends. We do all we can to BUILD each student up, encouraging them in their faith walk and helping them to see who they are in Christ -- Sons and Daughters of God! Finally, we do our best to create an atmosphere where our teens can learn how to BURN, to be passionate in their worship, their prayer lives, and their ability to share the Good News of what Jesus has done in their lives with the world around them.
When and where FORGE gathers:
Doors to the FORGE building open at 6:30pm for hang out time, with snacks available for purchase in "Rack, Shack & Benny's" (our little cafe). Our room is full of fun stuff to do -- video game consoles, Foosball, air hockey, table games and more! Then the FORGE service gets started at 7pm, with a wrap-up time of 8:15pm.
Events, Retreats, Outings
Throughout the year we also provide opportunities for fun and relationship-building outside of our mid-week program. Local events like seasonal parties, bowling, camping out on the church grounds -- and then annual events like retreats, camps, conferences, mission trips and more!
Get Connected. Go Deeper.
For those High School students who want to go DEEPER, we provide a weekly discipleship we call FUSION. Currently we are going through the book "Lion Chasers" by Mark Batterson. For more information on this group and when we meet, contact Pastor Barry or fill out the form below.
