Weekly Preregistration
In Kids Matter Ministries we take child safety seriously, because we believe safety is important and because we want every parent/guarding and child to feel safe and comfortable when attending one of our services! In light of this, we have chosen to limit our room sizes during this Covid-19 season of life. Each room has had a particular number chosen taking into consideration, room dimensions, and student to teacher ratios.
We are also, currently only offering Kids Matter during the 2nd service (11 AM in Grand Forks, and will also be offering it during our 11 AM service in Grafton. At this time we are only asking our Grand Forks campus to preregister your child each week to give you peace of mind that your child will be attending Kids Matter that Sunday, or allow you to plan accordingly if your child will attend with you in adult worship. It also allows us to plan accordingly within our spaces to make sure we are prepared for your child. 
First Time Families    
When you arrive, you’ll go to the check-in station where you can tell us a little about your family to help us serve you well. This is located at the left side of the lobby. On our check-in form, we’ll ask things like what allergies your child may have, how many children are in your family, and get your contact information. Or you can fill out the new family check-in form online to save a few minutes when you check-in for the first time.
Then, you and your child will both get a sticker with a matching code. This sticker is also what you’ll use to pick up your child after the service.
In an effort to keep your family safe, KMM will remain closed until Phase 3 of Thrive’s re-opening plan. One-time-use activity bags are available in the sanctuary for your kiddos to use during worship. We will continue to stream service on thrivestream.org and Facebook Live! Tune in at 930am on Sundays. 
ThriveStream will feature Kindergarten-3rd grade worship service. Click below to find your service and resources (downloadable activity guides).
We are dedicated to partnering with parents to introduce children to the person and work of Jesus Christ
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 11:00am.
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!  We currently offer separate environments for Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, Kindergarten-3rd grade, and Preteen (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.
