Groups

Why join a group?

Thrive Community Church exists to lead people into a growing relationship with God through the life-giving message of Jesus. A huge part of that process is learning to depend on others. That’s why we gather into groups where you can get comfortable, share, invest, and change.

 

We believe that big impact results from the life change that happens in community, because we are not made to do life alone.

God uses intimate connections with other people as catalysts for change — in us, in our relationships with Him and others, in our families, and in the world.
