NEW! Discovery Class: Those going into grades 6-
Leadership and Growth
Something exciting that God has been working into the horizon of THRIVE Student Ministries this fall is starting Student led action Groups.
What are they?
Student initiated leader encouraged interest based ways that students can find opportunities to reach out to their world with the love of Christ. Below are some examples of THRIVE’S planned action groups:
Art – Teaching art classes to local kids free of charge, sprucing up the youth room to make it welcoming to all who attend.
Sports – Organizing God centered sporting events & creating a schedule of THRIVE Students sports schedule.
Hospitality – Greeting and making sure new students feel welcome at THRIVE Nights
Why Action Groups?
In Matthew 28:16-
How did we get here and how do we get there?
Action Groups are something that I have wanted to see for a while but a few things needed to take place first.
1st we needed to have a group of students who were ready to go outside of their comfort zone and the four walls of the church. God has given us just that. These guys and girls are primed and pumped!
2nd we needed to gear some teaching and training towards growth and leadership. We now have that in form of a Sunday School class that meets every Sunday at 9:30am. We have some amazing future leaders being reached in this class.
3rd we need the vision to organize and leaders to facilitate this. I can’t say enough about the amazing creative ideas God has been giving my leaders and we are excited about how God is going to provide all the needs we have to accomplish His will!
Please pray for this initiative as we THRIVE for Christ at Trinity at The Eastern Gate!!
YOUTH NIGHT: Wednesdays at 6:30pm!

Our MISSION is best described in the verses below which are really Jesus' final words to His followers everywhere, including us: Matthew 28:18-
"Then Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
