An Important announcement

from Pastor Barry

Dear Thrive Church,

I'm writing to you today with an important update regarding Thrive Church. It has been just over 14 months since we had to stop meeting at Sellers Elementary due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through this time, our church pastoral team and leadership have strived to continue serving you and advancing the Kingdom of God. We have seen some great victories, and it has also been a season of struggle. We are thankful that God has remained faithful through it all.

Over the past couple of months, Megan and I have been praying and seeking council with our Foursquare district leadership regarding our next steps and the future of Thrive Church. During this time, the Lord has confirmed to us that our time as the senior pastors of Thrive has come to an end. This was not a decision that was reached easily. We love you and our church community. It has truly been an honor to be your pastors for the last six and a half years.

Due to the current situation of Thrive Church, and the fact that we no longer have a physical meeting place to meet in, both our district leadership and church council are in agreement that Thrive Church would be best served by merging with another Foursquare congregation. At the district's direction, I have reached out to Pastor Sean O'Grady at Lifehouse Church in San Dimas, and his council and leadership team are in favor of this transition. Sean and his pastoral team are eager to welcome our Thrive family with open arms.

Our final service online as Thrive Church will take place on Sunday, October 31. I encourage you to join us as we worship God for all He has done in and through our church family. I also want to invite you to join us in person at Lifehouse Church* on Sunday, November 7 at 10 a.m. Our Thrive leadership team will be there to welcome you. 

Transitions and endings are never easy. At the same time, it is also in these moments when God often does His best work. I encourage you to seek His heart for you during this season of change. Please know that I am praying for you as we navigate these next steps as a church

You are loved,

Pastor Barry
