Kids and students are a vibrant—and vital—part of Thrive Church and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Read on to discover how youth can participate and to learn important information about how we make sure your children remain safe and secure while they grow deeper and form life-changing friendships.


Birth-Grade 6
We love kids. And, they love coming to Thrive Church. It’s our mission to help each of the children entrusted to our care know that God made them, that Jesus loves them, and that they can have a forever home in heaven.
From the earliest days of a child’s life, they can begin to know the gentle, protective, strong, and faithful love of Jesus.

Thrive student ministry is a high-energy environment, where students come together to learn more about Jesus.  We believe that students who are connected to a life-giving church and involved in healthy relationships can follow Jesus for a lifetime. Students will learn how  to use their gifts and passions to make an impact for God now and for the rest of their life.

We will be launching in January! Subscribe to the Thrive Church Newsletter for the latest news and events.

Kids are safe at Thrive Church. All of our volunteers are well trained and must voluntarily submit to background checks before they are permitted to begin serving. And, our check-in and check-out system another important layer of protection. When you check in, you will receive a tag with a one-of-a-kind code on it that matches the name tag that will be placed on your child. This means that you are the only person allowed to pick up your child.

Early Bird Check In

For your convenience, you can check in your child before you arrive at Thrive Church. If you complete early check in by 8:00 AM on Sunday, we’ll have tags printed and a team member will be there to welcome you and show you to your child’s class. (If you aren’t able to check in early, that’s OK. We’ll still be there to help you out!)
