"A HOPE & A FUTURE" Building Prayer Project Overview

{ April 1-June 30 }


Proverbs 4:11 gives us some clear promises for our lives: “I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.” We are looking for these ways of wisdom and straight paths as a church family this spring and summer. We know that God is teaching us, leading us and moving us! We want to hear and follow His instruction!

THE SCOOP ON MOVING: Our current building is owned by another church denomination. We recently learned that this denomination is purchasing another building in the area and would like to put our building on the market to sell in the near future. We don’t have an exact timeline of when the building will go on the market and when it will sell. The best estimate we have been given is that we will need to be out of our building in the first quarter of next year, 2020. We have steadily been looking for our next location over the past few years. With this news, has come a new focus and increased efforts around this building search.

Here’s where you come in: When we pray together, God does things! Simple, right? We want to focus our attention on God and His instruction, promises and nature! He is faithful to us. He has begun a good work and He will finish the good work. Thrive is setting up a prayer calendar to pursue God’s heart, wisdom and voice for us as church.
Will you sign up to pray one day per week for the next three months?  We are asking for God to be known in greater measure to us and through us in this move; to increase in favor with God and man; for heavenly provision for our building; and for the wisdom of God in all our decisions and movement. 

Thanks for joining us in this! We can’t wait to see the glorious hope and future He brings! We will pass along updates as we discover them… you can pass along what you hear God saying as we lean into His voice!

UPDATES

Thanks so much for signing up to pray for our next move! We know that God moves as we pray together! We are looking to God to provide like only He can, in ways that are beyond our expectation. We are knocking on every door, to see what opens- land to build something new, an existing building that we can renovate, a church that is moving out of their space! We are sure God has something great in mind and is bringing answers to us as we seek and knock. 

For now, will you pray through this promise over Thrive?  

We hear God speaking in Isaiah 54, the Message version:
“Clear lots of ground for your tents!
    Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big!
Use plenty of rope,
    drive the tent pegs deep.
You’re going to need lots of elbow room
    for your growing family.
You’re going to take over whole nations;
    you’re going to resettle abandoned cities.
Don’t be afraid—you’re not going to be embarrassed.
    Don’t hold back—you’re not going to come up short.


We are confident that we are not going to come up short in any way: time, resource, space. Please pray that we experience the fullness of God’s faithfulness, that we stay full of courage and can discern His grace in this process.

Thanks again for praying!  We will post updates here every other week!
