A Thrive is a place to learn, grow, and connect.
Thrives happen throughout the year, with topics ranging from how to share the gospel with your neighbors or how to practice a biblical approach to your finances. Sometimes they are gender or stage-of-life specific, and other times they are open to anyone in and outside of The Well church body.
Key leaders teach these seminars on fresh and relevant topics that challenge each of us to expand our knowledge, ask hard questions, and meet new people.
Check out our schedule below for upcoming Thrives this fall. Use the Typeform below to sign up for one (or more than one!) that interests you.
SPRING THRIVE SCHEDULE
Thrive: Studying the Bible Together
Sunday | February 25, March 4 & 11 | 11:15 am – 12:30 pm | Location: SDA Building
Ever feel stuck spiritually? Longing for more grit? More joy? More intimacy with the Lord? You're not alone; even King David struggled with seasons of drought. "My soul thirsts for God, for the Living God." (Psalm 42:2). We invite you to invest in your spiritual life this winter!
3D and Community leaders, we've tailored this Thrive especially for you! We want to thank you for discipling those around you, and we want you to stay well-fed and close to Jesus. If you are interested in leading or discipling others, please consider taking this course, and ask the Lord to satisfy your "thirsty soul" (Psalm 107:9).
Thrive: Financial Peace University
Sunday | March 25& April 8 - May 27 | 11:15 am – 12:30 pm | Location: SDA Building
Money impacts nearly every aspect of our lives. Yet most of us have never received any education on managing it well, let alone dove deep into what the scripture says about our personal finances. Even if we think we are getting by managing our money, wouldn't it be powerful to receive encouragement and deeper insight on how to best use what God has entrusted to us?
With Dave Ramsey's class Financial Peace University, you can take control of your money, get out of debt, and create a plan for the future. This class cost $100 for supplies and material. Scholarships are available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thrive: Family Worship
Sunday | April 8 | 11:15am — 12:30pm | Location: SDA Annex
Parents have been called by God to be the primary disciple-makers for their children. If this is true, what does this look like on a consistent basis? In this Thrive, we will look at how doing family worship together will help accomplish the goal of discipling your kids. We will study what the bible says about family worship, and give practical tools of how to lead family worship through bible reading, prayer, and singing.
Thrive: Mercy Ministry
Sunday | April 15 & 22 | 11:15am — 12:30pm | Location: SDA Annex
We are called to demonstrate our faith by loving and serving others, yet we often struggle to serve our community in tangible ways. Who should I serve? What kind of commitment will it take? What if I don't feel motivated to serve, or just feel guilty that I'm not serving more?
The Well is renewing its commitment to serving the needs of our community by launching a ministry focused on displaying the mercy of Christ to those around us. Join us as we collectively look to the mercy that Christ has shown us, seek to better understand His concern for the poor and marginalized, and consider together how to walk in His example in our daily lives.
This series will focus on the biblical foundation for displaying Christ's mercy to others as well as on the tangible steps that we can take - as individuals, community groups, and as a church body - to serve the community around us in tangible ways.
Thrive: Doctrines of Scripture, God, and Humanity
Tuesday | May 1— May 29| 7:00pm — 8:30pm | Location: The Well House
This Thrive will take a look at three major doctrines from a systematic perspective. We will explore the scriptures and the works of theologians from the reformed perspective. In the doctrine of scripture, we will cover authority, inspiration, and cannon as well as other aspects of God's word. We will look at God's attributes, the Trinity, and how he has created humanity to reflect his image in a unique way. The cost for this Thrive is $15. (Covers materials) For need-based scholarships contact James Harris.
Women's Thrive: Made. Gifted. Called.
Saturday | April 28 | 9:30am — 12:30pm | Location: The Well House
How would you answer the question, "Who are you?" Would your response start with your occupation? Your age? Your marital status? While those replies are "parts" of you, they aren't the "whole" YOU! In this Thrive, we will explore who God has created us to be. God's Word will guide our discussion of identity, purpose, and calling. How has God made you unique? What are your gifts? Where has He called you? Join us as we unpack those questions and apply God's truth to our lives! Each one of us has been fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God! We are each gifted and purposefully called for His glory and our good!
