THRIVE Groups

Each week at each campus, women connect with the same group of 8-12 women in small groups to study God’s word and build relationships. You can sign up for an on-campus group through Thrive events, service projects and social gatherings. Children’s Program is available during morning studies only.

A variety of Bible studies are offered at each campus. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey—we have an on-campus group for you.

Thrive Short Term Groups

These are groups that meet for a shorter period, offered at varying times throughout the year, meeting at our East Paris Campus.  Registration is required for each group and will open soon.  These groups include:

 

RESPECTFULLY YOURS

This group strives to help you grow as a woman in marriage and relationships through practical ideas and biblical application.  This is not just a study about marriage but a teaching on identity and respect within the context of marriage.

RESTORE

These groups are designed for a woman walking through the trauma of a spouse’s sexual brokenness (including addiction to porn or unfaithfulness).  Let us help you find a connection to God that builds healing, intimacy with God and restores hope to your relationship with your spouse.

SEX AND THE SINGLE GIRL

This small group will equip single women to understand their sexuality, trust the Lord for redemption and healing, and present a broader understanding of what it means to honor God with our sexuality.

PASSION PURSUIT

Study what God’s Word has to say about our sexuality and pleasure in marriage and how we can THRIVE in God’s design for sex and passion.
