forge student ministry

Helping Youth become deeply devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Junior High 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. 

In addition, we believe in partnering with parents to help them disciple their families in the Christian faith.

fall retreat

Our theme for the retreat is LET GO. We all have the tendency to hold onto things for too long and keep them to ourselves, as if we can hide them from God! Our hope for this retreat is that it will be a time of growth, healing, vulnerability, and community. We're excited to spend this time together as a group. Cost is $100 per student. The retreat will take place at Knott Creek Falls in Harper. We know there are sports and things happening Friday night, so feel free to join us late Friday or early Saturday!
