Mom2Mom Cheektowaga 

Mom2Mom Cheektowaga will be meeting again in the Fall

If you’re a mom who regularly attends out Cheektowaga campus, with children in grade 5 and younger, and you’re someone who desires to live as a faithful disciple of Christ and longs to see your children do the same then we’d love for you to join us on this journey of motherhood together. Come, be supported, encouraged, and sharpened by Mentor Moms who have walked this journey well. These Mentors will offer love and priceless wisdom, as they invest in and guide you during this season, as we learn how to teach our children to Love God, Love the Church, Love the World.

What to expect: When you arrive at Mom2Mom you’ll be greeted by our wonderful Mom Mentors. You will then join a table with one Mentor, one Table Leader, and 5-6 moms. We’ll enjoy delicious light refreshments together, hear from godly women, and study God’s Word. Join us!

Mom2Mom Crosspoint and Mom2Mom Lockport 

Mom2Mom Crosspoint and Mom2Mom Lockport will not be meeting this year. The Chapel continues to grow and add campuses. This is so exciting! As we grow we find that sometimes we need to pause and reevaluate how we minister to each one of our communities. We love being able to encourage and help moms in their walk with the Lord. We want to make sure we are doing that to the best of our ability. As God leads us in new and exciting directions, it is vital that we listen to his prompting and align our ministry to what he has called us to. We will be taking some time to re-envision what ministering to moms in all of our communities looks like. Thank you for your continued support in prayer and understanding.

If you are interested in joining a Christ-Centered community, please consider joining a Chapel Community group. Starting on September 29, there will be new groups ready for you to join. Visit for more information.

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.

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,
