Tuesday Night Thrive is a large group gathering where it’s our desire to fuel a passion for God and for loving others in the lives of students. You can expect fun games, laughter, worship, food, and an encouraging message that is grounded in the truth of God’s Word and connects with students where they are at. The night is topped off with LifeGroups where students are heard, known, and discuss the message with a trusted adult who believes in them. This is a great place to bring friends and explore a relationship with Christ.
Sunday Morning Thrive: 9-10:10 in the Youth Room CLC429
Sunday morning Thrive is a warm up for our congregation’s second service. Here high school students can connect with each other through an interactive game, be aligned with God’s heart in worship, and be engaged by teaching from the Word of God. We encourage students to bring their Bible so they can follow along and participate in discovering who God is, who they are in Him, and how to live life to the full.
LifeGroups (Small Groups)
We believe community is how people grow. LifeGroups are our answer to this. They help students stay engaged and relationally connected, both to the church and to Christ. These are gender and grade specific. Within LifeGroups students get to process what they have heard and experienced in a lesson with their peers while being guided and encouraged to apply it personally by a trusted, consistent adult. Our LifeGroup leaders are always looking for ways to partner with parents and be another voice saying the same thing. If you want to know who your child’s LifeGroup leader is and or ways to connect with them, please contact Pastor Brian.
Something happens when we are taken away from the pressures of everyday life, have fun with friends and trusted adults, and hear the message of God’s love in terms we can understand. Something happens when what we are learning moves into experience. This is the desire of our camps and retreats. So many have said they gave their life to Christ or owned their relationship with Him at camp or retreat. With two retreats a year and camp during the summer we have seen this to be true. Check the calendar for when the next one is. If you feel God leading you to help support students financially to attend who otherwise wouldn’t please contact Pastor Brain.
As direction and finances allow, Thrive high school ministry takes a mission trip somewhere to help a local church reach their neighborhood as we help reach the world.
