We meet every Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8pm. We start off with a game (usually in our awesome gym!), have a snack, then break out into a lesson that is relevant to Middle School students!
High School Program.
Every Sunday from 4 to 6 pm.
We play games, eat food, and talk about our faith in large and small group settings. We also go on yearly trips to Cedar Point, mission trips, and more!
Thrive Youth Ministry
Thrive Church offers a place where middle & high schoolers can explore and grow a relationship with Jesus, as well as ask honest questions. We want every student to discover their Identity, Belonging & Purpose in Christian Community. And we help students take their next steps with Jesus, while connecting with others and having fun! All are welcome and all are included here. Thrive Youth is for all middle & high schoolers. You don't need to be a member to join us! Come anytime.
We offer three different options for youth to participate in our Youth Ministry!
What We Offer
Sunday Worship & Youth Group Meetings
Monthly Meet-ups & Fun

Family Activities & Events
Beginning Sept. 10, 2023, Thrive Youth & Leaders will gather in-between service on Sunday to catch-up in the Fellowship Area. It's GREAT for middle or high schoolers new to Thrive! Just look for the table with the Thrive Youth sign!
Rooted in the Word + Lunch
Beginning Sept. 24, 2023, we'll meet for lunch at 12:15pm in the lower level of the Family Life Center where we get real in the Word through Bible Study, discussion & reflection. Our talks are 100% relevant to everyday life. This is open to all middle & high schoolers at any time.
This is led by Jason Shantry, a long-time Thrive Church member who participated in our Youth group when he was in middle & high school.
