Welcome!  We try to focus our group on biblical ways to become a more Godly man, and how we can become better providers and leaders for our families and others around us.  The word “Forged” comes from Proverbs 27:17 — “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend”.  Our average night usually consists of sharing a meal, then watching a video series from RightNow Media.  We then have a discussion about the topics that were covered in the video.  Our group is mainly outdoorsy young men ages 25-35, but we do have some members much younger and older.  Unfortunately we do not currently have any form of childcare.  Thank you for taking a look at our group.  We are always welcoming and thankful for new members.
