Thrive Church is 175 weeks old! It’s been an amazing 3.5 years! Lives have been changed! Marriages have been encouraged and healed! People have found community! And…people have found Jesus and follow Him!! Through it all…God has been so faithful!
As I look back on 2016, I just scratch my head when I think about all the ONLY GOD moments! You can check out our annual report HERE.
In fact, He has sent the most amazing people to be a part of this church! I am in awe most days when I think about the staff He’s assembled, the leadership team and the body of people who call Thrive home! Just amazing!
A New Chapter for Thrive Church!
Very soon, we will start a new chapter. For the Church that started in a bar and then moved to a movie theater, we will move soon to the campus of Central Michigan University. WE ARE SO EXCITED!!
This is a total God thing! It’s an ONLY GOD moment and I’m so excited for this new chapter!
Why are we moving?
Simple. We have outgrown our space. Our current Sunday morning location is great and its been awesome! But, our kids ministry has suffered from a lack of space. Plus, our new location will position us in an amazing facility for both kids and adults and its in a great part of town! And we’re praying that God opens up doors for us to reach College students like never before!
So, how can we get there?
We’re asking people to sponsor seats to change lives!! If we can get enough seats sponsored, we will be able to purchase the equipment we need to turn CMU into Thrive Church on Sundays!!
There are 1200 seats and we’re praying that we can each one sponsored at $40!!
We primarily need to create an amazing environment for our Kids Ministry! Here is a portion of what we need:
- (4) Carts of Portable Kids Ministry Walls (Brand new, these are $8000). We’re praying we can get them donated or fine used ones.
- (150 feet) of Pipe and Drape
- (4) Portable TV Cases for Thrive Kidz and the TV’s to go in them.
- (2) Giant rolls of carpet
- Bean Bag chairs, toys, slides, little kids tables and chairs
- (2) Powered speakers
- (3) Laptops and Label Printers
- New Signage for Campus for Thrive Kidz and Thrive Church
- Dream items: Octoball ring, 9 Square in the air, bouncy inflatable
It’s super easy to sponsor a seat. Just text 84321, the amount and CMU. Or you can give online, just check the CMU Fund or give at Thrive.
