Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Kids Matter Ministries

Here at Thrive, we are dedicated to partnering with parents to introduce children to Jesus and help them learn just how much He loves them.


Kids Matter currently has a great need for volunteers! Email Kristina Cornelius for more information.

Kids Matter is our children’s ministry here at Thrive with relevant services for kids from birth-5th grade during our regular worship services on Sunday mornings in Grand Forks at 11:00 am and in Grafton at 6:00 pm.

Our services in every area include music, activities, and small group environments that are designed to teach the Bible in ways that are age-appropriate, creative, and relate to kids’ everyday lives.

We want kids to love coming to church each week! Therefore, we currently offer different environments for Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, Kindergarten-3rd grade, and pre-teens (4th/5th)!

Have children with food allergies? All of our kid spaces are nut-free and allergen friendly. Let us know if your kiddo has special dietary needs.
