SUNDAY PROGRAMS

Our weekdays are super busy, so that’s why Sunday is such a great time to recenter yourself! Sunday morning starts with Sunday School on the Student Ministries Hall. The evening wraps up with powerful programing tailored to meet each one of our students’ needs.

SMALL GROUPS

Small groups are the heartbeat of our student ministry and the best way for students to create lasting relationships with one another and their mentors. Groups are based on grade and gender and meet once a week at a time that best fits the schedules of the students and leaders. Groups journey together through life, share in each other’s highs and lows, and study the Bible with one another. Contact Jeremiah for more information.

MISSION OPPORTUNITIES

Serving God through loving others is a part of who we are at Thrive Student Ministries. We want students to have the opportunity to serve God and join in what He is doing in our world each and every day! In order to make that a reality, students will have the opportunity to serve in a variety of ways throughout the year.

CONFIRMATION

Each new year brings with it new opportunities, adventures, and challenges. One of those opportunities for our 6th graders is the Confirmation process! Confirmation is an opportunity to respond to the grace of God available to us, as acknowledged in baptism, and to promise to live as a person of faith.
