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.  To register for a group, please reach out to Sydney Wise.

Schedule by Age Group

Kindergarten - Second Grade

Third - Fifth Grade

Special Needs: Kindergarten - Fifth Grade

What will my K-5th grader learn about?

Bible truths in chronological order: Leaders will help the kids dive into the truths of the Bible and learn how to apply it to their lives. Students will see how all of Scripture points to a bigger story: God’s plan to rescue his people through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Scripture and catechism memory: We believe that scripture memorization and a clear understanding of Biblical theology basics are vital and fundamental parts of a student’s spiritual formation. Got Truth is a program designed to encourage our children and families to memorize and retain God’s Word and good doctrine. To encourage their participation, we offer several awards and incentives to keep them memorizing.

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.
