Our women's ministry is for women of any age and background. We believe women are uniquely gifted, especially in the area of community. 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,
