Thrive Series

 

Thrive is a series that we are doing based on the book “Spiritual Parenting” by Michelle Anthony. We have written up booklets to go with the topics covered on the first Sunday of each month.

The booklets have a discussion page which can be used for personal Bible study, family devotion times or small group study and discussion. There are also activities and ideas to do at home. They are open-ended enough to be done by any age and are not restricted to children or families. Choose one or two activities or do them all.

We pray that God would help you to develop good habits which will help you to thrive.
