Women that journey together and Thrive!

What is Thrive?

Thrive is our Women’s Ministry. As women, God created us to connect with others for encouragement and challenge. Thrive helps women—of all ages and stages of life—pursue God, build relationships and flourish in Christ. Cultivate a deeper faith through small groups, monthly gatherings & special events. Plug in and dig deep. We don’t just grow… we THRIVE.
