Forge Youth

Middle school and high school are phases in a student's life where they can discover God, grow deeper in their knowledge of Scripture, build intentional relationships, and live out the calling of KFUMC youth.


We recognize that students are busy and going here and there, so we create fun, engaging environments where students can come together to encounter the Living God and grow as deeply devoted followers of Jesus Christ. 


Activity at the Forge is heating up! This summer we are welcoming upcoming 6th graders to our program. We are looking to light a fire in our students, grades 6-12, for God through relational activities and Christ centered events. We will kick off the summer with a party at LOTH to welcome new students and families to our group as well as introduce Laura Drane (Middle School Ministry Director) and Kendra Thomas (Director of Youth Ministry).


AND THAT’S NOT ALL! WE have an exciting camp this summer open to both middle and high school, called REVIVE, mission/service opportunities and we will be hosting weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings in June and July. Beyond these we are working on big plans for the 2022-2023 school year and summer with our eyes on bigger events and new trips!



We are excited to provide programming for our students year round geared to do one thing, forge disciples of Jesus Christ! From games on the field to lessons in our meeting space (The Forge) all efforts are on winning hearts to Christ. Join us as a volunteer, parent, or student in forging a community where young people are encouraged, empowered and LOVED.
