What is THRIVE?

THRIVE is a tool which will help each of us find where we "fit together perfectly" in the body, using the gifts, talents, and abilities we have received, "through the generosity of Christ" to help the body of MPC be "healthy and growing and full of love".  This helps you see where God has uniquely created you to serve Him. Then serving in this way we can enjoy and be invigorated through serving. The joy of the Lord then becomes our strength.

  • MPC wants to be a church where we "are like trees planted along the river bank, bearing fruit each season, their leaves never wither and they prosper in all they do."  Psalm 1:3 NLT

  • And since Jesus "has given each one of us a special gift through the generosity of Christ."  Eph 4:7 NLT

  • MPC wants to be a church where, "... we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of His body, the church.  He makes the whole body fit together perfectly.  As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love."  Eph 4:15-16  NLT

How will we do THRIVE?

We have developed a THRIVE "Information Finder" which each person will be invited to fill out and return.  (The info provided will be confidential and available only to MPC leadership.)  Our MPC Ministry Teams have many ministry opportunities to serve in a wide variety of ways. We will match your indicated interests with the closest Serving Opportunity available.  Then we will meet with you and offer you the opportunity to “try the Serving Opportunity, with no strings attached” to make sure it is a position which “puts a round peg in a round hole” so that the whole MPC body is blessed with the results!

This "Information Finder" can be completed in paper form by clicking here or by signing into MPC Connect here and filling out the form online.  If you would like assistance in completing the form online click here.
