Welcome to a historic season at Thrive and more importantly the beginning of something that will mark our city forever. This is the most important moment since launching Thrive 7 years ago.
Jesus said, “When you produce much fruit, you are My true disciples. This brings great glory to My Father.” It’s not just a good idea if we produce much fruit, it is a mandate. When we look around our area and hear the statistics, it would be criminal for us as a church family to sit on the sidelines while our young people, friends, co-workers, and community are in such great spiritual need.
It’s time to get rooted in a church building. As we deepen our roots in Christ and put down permanent roots in our community, Jesus will multiply the fruit. There is a spiritually-strategic opportunity to not just do something good or charitable, but to set in motion souls streaming into Heaven and for the fruit to never stop.
I am asking you to pray and ask God how He would prompt you to play a role. Let’s move out of our comfort zone, so that the opportunity goes beyond us and more people move into the family of God. Let’s deepen the roots and see the unstoppable fruit.
For a city,
Rooted is a historic opportunity to come together in faith-filled unity and see God do something only He can do to accelerate the Gospel. This is the moment where we begin a journey to join God in the miraculous and root ourselves in a permanent facility that will result in thousands of souls streaming into heaven. It is time to become rooted as a church in a permanent facility. Why? Because when we deepen the roots, God will produce unstoppable fruit. Our new church home will not only allow us to significantly expand our reach to adults, but also create a place where hundreds of kids and teenagers will be reached each year.

This is a defining moment for Thrive. Pray that God would create in us an openness to listen to Him and a willingness to stretch beyond our comfort zone of where we are into a space for greater impact for the Kingdom.
Commit to being here each Sunday to engage with the vision casting message. Make it a priority to attend the scheduled Rooted events. Join the prayer efforts.
Reflect on God’s grace, forgiveness, and love. Be reminded of His great heart for the lost. Ask God what He wants to do through you to help us as a church complete this vision to accelerate the Gospel.
