Flourishing Faith Groups

Why do some Christians languish while others flourish? Because to fully thrive, we need to lean into our relationship with God using the wisdom He provides through His word and His world to build our inner strength. Good science reflects God’s glory! With this truth in mind, we can cultivate the resilience skills we need. We can create a reservoir of positive emotions, work with negative emotions, build our will-power, and create nurturing relationships, including our most important relationship. Flourishing Faith Groups give you those tools in an intimate and supportive faithbased group setting. The group meets weekly for 10 consecutive weeks. Each week building and deepening your wellbeing skillset leaving you nourished & empowered.
