Thrive Students One Night is cancelled this week, March 17th.

Please email us your full name, gender, phone number, and school grade if you’re not in a Thrive Crew GroupMe group and we’ll get you right in! We are here for you! If you have any questions, prayer requests, or need support, please feel free to reach out to us at students@thrivechurch.com.


In Thrive Students, we are dedicated to engaging and empowering the NextGen to thrive with NEW life in Christ. Thrive Students is our weekly Tuesday night ministry at Thrive Church for students 6-12th grade. Our goal is not just to entertain. We aim to create an atmosphere to encounter God’s presence, where students can meet Christ and grow in their relationship with Him.

Come as you are. Connect to an encouraging community. Discover your purpose. Make a difference.

No matter who you are or where you come from, we promise you this: you have a “home” here at Thrive Students.

One Night

3rd Tuesday of every month | 6:30pm-8:30pm | Schoolhouse Theater (19650 Mainstreet, Parker, CO 80138)

One Nights are our fun and exciting community outreach opportunities. We have larger scale events to reach further out and pull closer in. With engaging themes, games, and food, these events are a great opportunity for students to invite their friends. These event nights are dynamic and full of life change.

Crew Nights

All other Tuesday nights of the month | 6:30pm-8:30pm | Lantern House (11511 W. Stepping Stone Cir., Parker, CO 80134)

Crew Nights are centered around growing deeper in community, with a focus on small groups. Through heartfelt worship, genuine friendships, intentional small groups, and a relevant message geared towards students and their everyday lives, Crew Nights are a chance for us to engage the hearts of students and to disciple them personally. We know that life can be difficult, and young people are constantly asking “where can I go to feel loved, accepted, and know that I’m making a difference in the world that I live in?” Having friends and adult leaders is critical to understanding who we are in Christ. Our Thrive Crews provide space for students and leaders to talk through tough questions and build deeper connections with their friends, community, and most importantly, Jesus.
