In Thrive, we work to develop tools and practices that will serve kids their whole lives as they strive to follow in the way of Jesus. We use scriptures, in-depth Bible studies, practices and worship. The Thrive Class also serves and leads the Tru Class by serving snacks, engaging in guided conversations, and leading crafts and musical worship.

Our primary hope with our Open Door Students is to partner with parents in cultivating young Jesus-followers into a lifestyle of engaged discipleship and active participation in God's unfolding kingdom. Our approach to the spiritual formation of our students is the same as our approach to our adults: experiential, narrative, and relational. Facilitated weekly by our ODK team, our kids' experience is a creative, multi-sensory, hands-on journey through the Story of God.

Our newest learning environment in Open Door Kids, Ten+ is just starting to take shape. Our intention with Ten+ is to invite kids into the life of the worshipping community, through helping with the leadership of Thrive and also in Open Door’s worship gathering. Throughout the month, Ten+ gathers to learn and practice together what it means to follow Jesus. Throughout the year, Ten+ engages in a rhythm of immersive serving and worshipping opportunities.

ODK strives to provide kids and families with handholds and tools like scripture, prayer, service and community to anchor and propel them as they daily walk in the way of Jesus. Beyond our Sunday Gatherings, we want our kids to know they are an important part of God's story and have a role to play in weaving heaven and earth together again for the good of the world.
