πŸ›  FORGED IN CHRIST

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10 (ESV)

At The Forge Youth Ministry, we’re on a mission to equip middle school and high school students with the tools they need to transform their faith, character, and relationships. Our vibrant ministry is designed to introduce youth to Jesus Christ, help them cultivate a personal relationship with Him, and discover the unique service God has prepared for each of them (Ephesians 2:10).

THREE PILLARS

SOCIALIZING

In a world dominated by social media, we know the importance of face-to-face connections. The Forge creates opportunities for students to engage with one another through lock-ins, game nights, retreats, and other exciting activities. There’s something for everyone!

SERVING

We believe that youth aren’t just the future of the churchβ€”they are the church right now! Our students actively serve in various roles, such as the Audio/Video team, worship teams, and children’s ministry. At Bethany, we empower young people to use their gifts and talents for God’s glory.

SEEKING

Join us every Wednesday night from 6:30-8 PM at The Forge for The Wednesday Gathering. It’s a time of fellowship, study, games, food, and hanging out. This is where friendships are formed and deepened. We dive into Scripture, explore tough questions, and seek a deeper relationship with our Savior. At The Forge, students are empowered to be themselves, ask questions, and pursue who God has created them to be.

At The Forge, our hope is that students recognize they are God’s workmanship, learn about their Creator, and develop a lasting relationship with Him. Join us on this exciting journey where faith comes to life, friendships flourish, and fun is guaranteed!
