Thrive exists to encourage women in Jesus Christ.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  - Romans 12:2

Entrusted - By Beth Moore

A Study of 2 Timothy 

We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.

In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness.

Cost: $18

CROSSPOINT: Beginning Monday, January 22 from 6:30-8: 30pm OR Tuesday, January 24, from 9:30-11: 30am.

CHEEKTOWAGA: Beginning Wednesday, January 24 from 6:30-8: 30pm

Precepts- Daniel Part 2

Does the turmoil in our times, the uprisings and the spiritual decay of many have anything to do with the Book of Daniel? Daniel was a man who knew what God said about the end times. He focused on what God said, not the events of his own time. He had an impact on the people that God placed in his life.

How do you live as a Daniel in the crucial days in which you find yourself? How can you dare to be different? How do you get to know God Most High? The Book of Daniel has the answers.

Cost: $26

CROSSPOINT: Beginning Monday, January 22 from 6:30-8:30pm OR Tuesday, January 24, from 9:30-11:30am. Register Here: Thechapel.com/register/#women

Movi Moms

Moms of High Schoolers- Thrive Women's Ministry is hosting a Bible Study for you on Wednesday nights while your high schooler is at MOVI at the Apex. Beginning CROSSPOINT: January 24 at 7pm for 9pm weeks join us in King's World Classroom 428 at the main CrossPoint building. 

We will be working through the study: Hiding From Love 

When you experience emotional injury, fear, shame, or pride your first impulse is to hide the hurting parts of yourself from God, others, even yourself. The problem is that when you hide your injuries and frailties, you isolate yourself from the very things you need in order to heal and mature. In Hiding from Love, Dr. John Townsend helps you to explore thoroughly the hiding patterns you've developed and guides you toward the healing grace and truth that God has built into safe, connected relationships with himself and others.

Cost:$12
