Marriage Ministry at Thrive

At Thrive we recognize the importance of marriage. Strong marriages build strong families and strong families are the backbone of the church. In support of this we are creating a marriage ministry starting in 2018.  No matter where you are in your current relationship, there's something here that can benefit you. Examples of anticipated services / events are as follows:

• Marriage conferences & seminars
• Workshops
• Retreats
• Coaching
• Pre-marital counseling
• "Celebrate Marriage" events (e.g. dances, dinners, date-nights, etc.)

Please check back to this page or read the monthly newsletter for details of specific events.

Volunteer Opportunities

We will need volunteers for the marriage conference as well as other upcoming events.  Opportunities will range from helping set up / tear down for a single event to signing up for training to become a marriage coach.   If you want to learn more, please contact Jerry McColgin at

XO Marriage Conference - Photos

The 2018 XO Marriage Conference was a huge success! The almost 40 couples in attendance heard from inspiring speakers, were challenged to enhance their current relationships and even had the opportunity to renew their vows! Can't wait to host again next year.

Marriage Fun Night - March 16th

Get a babysitter (if needed), take your wonderful spouse out for dinner, then come to Thrive from 7:00-9:00 PM  for a free evening of dessert, coffee bar & fun entertainment w/other married couples. We'll play fun games & enjoy a video of a well-known comedian. Enjoy a night out together that won't break the bank & get reconnected. Invite your married friends, too. Please RSVP BY Sunday, March 11th to make sure we have enough for all to enjoy. Sign up below. See Todd or Laurie Andrews for any questions.
