Hi Thrive Church Family,
I am really excited to share what we have planned for September at Thrive Church. Our leadership team through extensive prayer, consultations with our church members, and AHS guidelines, here is the plan for this September for Thrive Church.
September we will be launching, “Friday Night Thrives”. An person evening of extended worship and Holy Spirit lead ministry. The purpose of this meeting is to gather together in person to have a time of worship and give time and room for the Holy Spirit to minister to people. Friday Night Thrives will be Friday September 11 and Friday September 25 at 7:30PM. There is a need for us to gather together in person. I am excited for what God has planned for these nights. In these in person gatherings we will adhere to AHS COVID guidelines, such as social distancing of chairs, masks, sanitizations stations, etc. Childcare will not be available for these nights. Registration will be made available closer to the date as seating is limited. This will be a great time to come together in person for times of refreshing from the Spirit of God.
** If you would like to be part of the team that makes Friday Night Thrives happen you can sign up HERE We have many opportunities for you to use your giftings and serve others.**
For the month of September we will keep Sunday services online at our Thrive Church Youtube and Facebook page. We will continue to monitor and evaluate the ever changing situation, especially with schools returning. You and your family’s complete health - spirit, soul and body - are our priority. Mid-September we will announce what the plan will be for October.
Groups are back this Fall!! We will be starting Thrive Small Groups this October. Time to get together in a small cohort group and discuss God’s Word, pray for one another and encourage each other. In September we will announce the groups that are available and how to register. If you would like to host a small group in your home please reply to this email and let us know.
We will continue Thrive Live this fall on our Thrive Church Facebook and Instagram pages, but will change in September to every Tuesday and Thursday at 8PM. This has been a highlight of many people’s day.
Church, I am so excited for what God has for us this fall! I have great expectation, faith and anticipation for what God has in store. God reminded me out of Ephesians 3:20, He is able to do more then we can ask, think or imagine according to the power that works within us. God has good things in store for our church and for you!
Know you are loved, we pray for you every day and are here for you!
