thrive children's ministry

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.  For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit"
Jeremiah 17:7-8


our heart

Here at THRIVE Children's Ministry, our passion and goal is to teach and show children, by the power of the Holy Spirit, who God is.  Our desire is to come alongside of you, the caregiver, as you point your children to Christ.  One of the ways we do this is by striving to provide a safe, fun and Christ-centered environment for them while you sit in service.  We want to support and encourage you as your kids cultivate their own relationships with Jesus.  Psalm 1 says of the man who meditates on God's Word that "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper."  Our hope and prayer is that every child that attends THRIVE would fulfill the words of this Psalm and make a choice to follow Jesus with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.
