Thrive exists to encourage women toward Jesus Christ and transformation for a life lived outward

Good To Great in God's Eyes

In this series, Chip Ingram uses Scripture, personal stories, and examples from real Christians who left an indelible mark on the world to offer clear steps to becoming great in the things that matter most. These steps are not intended to earn God’s favor or to impress other people; however, they are an opportunity to fulfill the highest and best purposes God has for your life.

Do you desire deeper connection with the body of Christ? One of the best ways to build those relationships is through service. There are plenty of opprtounities pleanty of oppertunities  to serve within The Chapel family.


KINGS WORLD - Pre-Service Childcare

We’re looking for a few people to serve with young children (under 10 yrs. old) every other week, for an hour before the start of our first worship gathering. You will be providing this service for parents who serve in multiple areas, that need to arrive before King’s World opens. Parents will pre-check-in their children, drop them off to you, and once King’s World is open, you will drop them off at their appropriate classroom. This service provides a unique opportunity to serve our church, while never missing any of our morning worship gatherings.  We are asking that you to commit to a six month time period, in an effort to build relationships and also keep the team consistent. What a fun way to meet young families, as well as, build community with those serving with you.



Buffalo City Mission’s Cornerstone Manor provides emergency shelter for up to 16 single women and 5 families seeking protection from city streets or an abusive relationship. Up to 12 families and 46 single women can find hope and healing in the facility’s two-year resident recovery program. Cornerstone Manor Women and Children’s Shelter is a welcome relief from the uncertainties and fear homeless women and families face. For many, it’s the closest thing to home.



The “Grace House” Transitional Residence Program is a shelter which provides a unified delivery of vital community services to homeless parolees (individuals recently released from a New York State correctional facility) who statistically return to the community unprepared to reintegrate. These men are unable to find suitable housing and are all homeless upon their release from incarceration. The residents of “Grace House” are held accountable for their Parole reporting mandates, are mentored and introduced to life skills training, and are equipped with skills necessary to manage life affairs and become productive members of society.



Jericho Road Ministries facilitates wellness and self-sufficiency in the lives of refugee and low-income community members by addressing health, education, and economic barriers. The vision of Jericho Road Ministries is for Buffalo to become a city with abundant opportunity for the undeserved and marginalized to be healthy, educated, and whole.



CareNet is a national network of more than 850 life affirming pregnancy centers. Lockport CareNet Pregnancy Center was established in 1985, serving the community for over 25 years.  We are a non-profit volunteer organization supported totally by fundraisers and donations. We strive to show the love of Christ as we provide a compassionate and safe environment.  Clients receive hope for the future through hearing about positive options and being offered continued help.



For 30 years, SonRays Ministries, Inc. has been committed to helping young women, young men, and families that face unplanned pregnancies. SonRays Ministries began in 1983 as a prayer hotline under the Buffalo Regional Office of the 700 Club. As an arm of the local church, SonRays Ministries now exists to lovingly and prayerfully lead the hurting to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our women's ministry is for women of any age and background. We believe women are uniquely gifted, especially in the area of communication. God uses us in amazing ways to touch the lives of our families, friends, neighbors and co-workers when we are looking to Him for wisdom and strength. This is the heart behind Thrive. We want to encourage you in your life with God so that you grow to be more like Christ. As you become more like Him, you will naturally desire to love, care, bless and give to others so they may know Christ as well.

Grace and peace,

Thrive Women’s Ministry exists to encourage all people towards transformation for a life lived outward.
