9th–12th grade

What is


Forge is our high school ministry for 9th through 12th grade. High school is the final ministry before launching students as adults, so Forge is designed to give students more responsibility and to transition them into being a full member of the church.

Our goal is to help high school students live in biblical community, which in turn will send them out to live missionally for the Kingdom of God rather than their own personal “kingdoms.”  We believe that the Scriptures attest to the fact that God uses a refining fire to purify our faith and to transform our lives into his character, and we want to unite as the church that is being “forged” into his image, for his glory.

What To Expect

Forge program games

Sunday Nights

This time is strategically planned to help all of our students connect and unite together as the church through singing and Bible teaching. We expect all of our students to actively attend the Adult Worship Services on Sunday mornings, and then on Sunday evenings we provide age-specific equipping that is aimed at the everyday life of a high school student.

Small Groups

We believe that life change happens best in the context of community. For this reason, students meet in small groups after program or in homes. Small groups are divided up by grade and gender and allow our students to experience the process of discipleship firsthand as they build relationships with others their age and are poured into by their small group leaders.
