THRIVE! Grow strong and vigorous, do well and prosper

Check out our fall lineup of groups and classes designed specifically with you in mind…

Affinity Groups:

Sit & Listen | Is your life too busy? Working too hard with hardly enough time to pray and be in the word? Then you will love “Sit and Listen.” It’s a time to connect with the Holy Spirit and soak in Scripture. The Lord desires us to come near to Him in intimate relationship and we long to hear His voice. According to the word, this is the kind of relationship we’re able to enjoy if we seek Him. Lets draw near together and allow His presence to penetrate us body, soul and spirit. Open to everyone! Meets the 1st, 2nd & 3rd Thursday’s of the month at 7:00 PM in the Church Office Conference Room (ongoing).

Thrive | Dublin West | Thur 7:00 PM | Sit & Listen

Men’s Intercessory Prayer | Greetings to you in the matchless name of Christ! While our hearts grieve over many of the things happening in the world around us, our Lord reassures us that He is in control and promised to send revival and cleanse our land if we humble ourselves before Him and pray. Join us to intercede for our nation, peace in our cities, boldness to be a witness for Christ, and for our young people to stand firm in the Lord. Open to adult men of any age. Meets Thursday’s at 8:00 PM in the SRC 2nd Floor Collaboration Space (ongoing).
