Thrive MCC's History


We began with a very small group meeting in living rooms to pray, study the bible, find fellowship, and become community. Out of those small group meetings, an official church was born -- Gentle Shepherd MCC. Gentle Shepherd MCC grew and became a church home for many throughout the years. 


The church began to discuss our future as well as what we hoped and dreamed it would look like. We decided to change our name to more accurately reflect who we are as a community. In July 2016, Thrive MCC was born.


Thrive MCC is a community of people who want to be a vibrant, inspiring, loving family for all who need a place to call home. We want to THRIVE.
