Next Steps

What is Next Steps?

We are passionate about helping you find your next step, not only at Thrive, but also in your relationship with Jesus. We know that growing in a relationship with Jesus doesn’t just happen overnight. It’s a process. It’s because of this that our Next Steps Growth Track is available. No matter where you are in your walk with Christ…whether you’re brand new and have no idea where to start…or you’ve been on the journey for a while and want to get deeper…Thrive Chapel has a place for you to do just that.

Our Next Steps Growth Track shows you all of the opportunities available, based on where you are.

There’s no right or wrong place to start at Thrive Chapel. Christ meets us where we’re at. So check out the Growth Track, see where you might want to start and join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30am to kick off the next phase of your journey with Jesus.

Growth Track

Growth Track is a 3 week group designed to help you grow in your next step with God. Whether you’re new to Thrive Chapel, you feel your Spiritual Growth has plateaued or you just need a little help finding your next step, this is the group for you!

The Growth Track is designed to help each one of us find our next step with God regardless of how long or short we’ve been following Him.

Life Groups

Life groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why life groups exist; to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Want to Lead or Host a Group?

Leading a life group isn’t about being perfect; it’s about serving others by giving them a place to connect. Hosting a group is simple – choose a day of the week that is available to you and select a time and location to meet with others to share. We give you essential tools to make your life group successful through Leadership Training and a directory where you can register your group so others can find it easily. 

*Some groups may decide to do their own approved material

FAQs

– Is Childcare Provided?

Not all Groups offer childcare, but there are options available. Make sure to let us know if you would like to join a group with childcare. Some groups will have participants share responsibility in watching the children, split the cost for a sitter, or make other arrangements.

– What will my Group study?

You can find the study options we offer via the link above. Some Groups may decide to use their own study.

– How often do Groups meet?

Our life groups will last for different lengths of time. Some may last several weeks and others are year round. Most life groups meet once a week. Life groups are meant to bring meaning and community into the flow of your life so even if you can’t attend every, single meeting, there is still great value in joining a group.

– Where do Groups meet?

Life groups meet in places like homes, parks, restaurants, coffee shops and office buildings. The leader of the group selects a meeting spot that best fits the purpose of the group.

Discipleship

'Along Side'

The Bible shows us the importance of having a one-to-one relationship and at Thrive Chapel we want to help you by offering Alongside, a mentorship initiative that connects two people for the purpose of spiritual growth. If you find yourself spiritually burnt-out or stuck, THIS IS FOR YOU! If you are interested in being a mentor or mentee in our discipleship initiative, simply fill out our online request form.

He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. 2 Corinthians 1:4 (MSG)

Lets Connect

The heart of our church is for you to take your next step with God. Here are some ways + events to get connected & grow.

[ Click the dropdown for the descriptions of these events ]

Prayer is essential to our growth & walk with Jesus. We want to create a culture of contending in prayer for everything, but not just in our needs. To build up our relationship with Jesus, we have to talk to Him!

Our Prayer Room sessions are a relaxed environment with acoustic worship, made for you to have quiet time alone with the Lord away from the busy-ness life carries. This is a special time to sit in the presence of the Lord and seek prayer with members of the church. 

We love Encounter Sundays! It is a time and space for us to encounter the presence of Jesus. Our heart behind these Sundays is to teach the congregation how to encounter the Holy Spirit during song and thanksgiving. But we don’t want to only have these moments of encounter in these services, but in our daily lives.

Our prayer is that we would live in a constant state of thanksgiving no matter our circumstance, this is what teaches us to encounter daily. When we can see Jesus in every circumstance & situation.

 

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

We hold worship nights periodically to engage with the Holy Spirit during song and praise. These services normally last an hour or two and involve our band leading us in songs. The Lord loves people who love to praise Him! We want our church to know this. Join us for these special nights of worship!

Psalm 95:1-6 

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.

We host every month Gathering Place community events after our 10:30am Sunday service. This is a time for us to come together, eat, and edify one another

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
 
Hebrews 10:24-25

Water Baptism

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. When Christians are baptized, they are submergedunder water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection.
