Thrive has events for students throughout the year, which include outings to theme parks and concerts, kayaking, winter and summer camps. Thrive also organizes mission trips for high school students.

Weekly meetings

Students meet weekly for a time of games, music, videos, and teaching from God’s Word. At these meetings, students will also break into small groups for discussion time.

High school students will join main service on Sundays.

Core Values


We desire that our students would be open to being molded and shaped by the Holy Spirit, their leaders, other students and church leaders.


We desire that Thrive is an environment where students’ voices are heard in a safe place; their thoughts are valued and questions are answered.


We desire that students are offered the opportunity to grow in relation with other students and leaders.


We desire that Thrive is a place where all individuals feel welcome and comfortable inviting others to come.


We desire that Thrive is an environment where our students’ faith is visible and nurtured.


We desire that as students graduate they are equipped to go out into the world, and the church at large and live a life committed to following Christ.
