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
• Mentoring
• 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.

Pool Party!

Ever notice that its always the kids that have the most fun at pool parties? Well, we’re going to change that! Join us for a pool party on June 14th from 6:30 - 9:00 at the home of Steve and Sha Butz (13868 Berenger Ln in Carmel). We’re going to have contests and games where you and your spouse can compete with other couples for bragging rights and fabulous prizes. Even if you’re not one that would ever get in a pool, join us anyway as it will be a lot of fun to watch, cheer on your friends and mingle with other married couples. There will be plenty of food to fuel you and fellowship to encourage you. Tea and Water will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own beverage as well.

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

Marriage Mentoring

Thrive is pleased to offer marriage mentoring to couples in our church. Mentoring is essentially connecting a highly seasoned married couple with a lesser experienced married couple. The goal is for the longer married to be there to answer questions or help with issues that many couples face.
