Growing Disciples of Christ

KidsThrive partners with parents in the discipleship of their Kindergarten - 5th grade children. Within their small groups, kids begin to establish the rhythms and disciplines of a lifelong pursuit of God. 

KidsThrive groups meet at 9 AM on Sundays during the school year. Our first gathering is on Sunday, September 11. Please register by August 14.

SuperStart Sundays

To prepare your new kindergartners for the transition from KidsRock, join us for SuperStart on two special Sundays, August 14 and 21, at 9 AM only. At SuperStart, your kids will get to experience a taste of what KidsThrive and KidsQuest has to offer.

Our SuperStart leaders will welcome kindergartners to their assigned groups for the day. Kindergartners will be introduced to a KidsThrive small group experience and travel as a group to Midtown Auditorium for the large group experience. Then we will move on to KidsQuest to participate in a small portion of their exciting large group worship environment! We will return to classrooms for pick-up.

No sign-up necessary. Bring your child to the Depot (near Midtown) for check-in.

In KidsThrive, we combine biblical truth and compelling relationships, to disciple the next generation of difference-makers. Can you help nurture and train our children to confront and conquer their culture for Jesus? Discipleship leaders and volunteers are needed. Please contact Sarah Merrick and we can help you find the right serving opportunity that fits your schedule and gifts.
