ThriveTHRIVE is designed for Middle School Students.  We gather for games, worship, and a discussion led by one of our college or high school volunteers. G.A.G. (Games & Grub) nights are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month; dinner is provided. The year is full of events, but listed below are some of the “Best of Thrive” activities.

Join in this high energy gathering!

Urban Plunge Mission Trip

ThriveUrban Plunge is our middle school mission trip to inner-city Los Angeles. The trip, which occurs on a weekend in December, is hosted by the Center for Student Missions. The trip includes a tour of Los Angeles, a meal at an ethnic restaurant, and the opportunity to work on several service projects, such as serving food at a homeless shelter, playing bingo with residents of a retirement home, or leading a vacation Bible school at an inner-city church. The trip is a great opportunity to learn about poverty, serve others, and enjoy fellowship with one another.


Forest Home Christian Camp


July 26 – July 31, 2020

Registration 2020 is now open. (CLICK HERE)

Our Thrive and Logos groups travel to Forest Home for one week every summer to grow in their relationships with God, fellowship with one another, participate in fun camp activities with a wonderful staff, and enjoy time in the mountains.

Students participate in a variety of fun activities and deepen their relationship with God through worship, speakers, simulations, and small group activities. They share meals together, participate in friendly competitions, and enjoy free time in the afternoon where they can enjoy the lake or pool, hike, play miniature golf, try out the climbing wall or zip line, fish, get creative at the craft cabin, or just hang out with friends at the snack bar. Middle school students stay at Creekside and high school students stay at Lakeview, and each age group participates in separate programs. During free time, students from Creekside, Lakeview, and the family camp may participate in all the activities Forest Home offers while spending time together.
