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

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

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.

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.
