About the Event

Adult MinistryWomen's Ministry

We are excited to bring back the ThriVe baby shower this summer! Savor life as you will hear about ThriVe’s life-affirming care of women in our community, and their compassionate approach to assisting women (and men) who are facing crisis pregnancies. Enjoy a delicious lunch, and help support the work of this important local ministry.

ThriVe is a local ministry supported by Central’s missions, and the ThriVe shower is sponsored Women in Ministry and Central’s Life Team. Women in Ministry has for many years purchased new essential baby items for families in need. In 2019, more than $10,000 in baby care items were purchased, including 30+ car seats, 30+ pack & plays, bouncers, swings, high chairs, etc., along with many lovely handmade items! 

The Shower begins in Fellowship Hall at 10 am, with lunch served at 11:30 am.


Q: What kinds of donations are needed, and how do we participate?

In the weeks before the shower we shop to meet the needs that ThriVe has requested. Especially this year with supply chain and shipping challenges, now is the time! The easiest ways to support this effort are 

  1. You can make a (tax-deductible) monetary donation using the “Donate” link below and Central volunteers will purchase what is most needed. (Monetary donations made to the church in advance are tax-deductible. (Checks must be mailed to the church office at 7700 Davis Drive, 63105; please include “Thrive” in the memo. Important: the $15 registration fee is not tax-deductible and should be sent by separate check.) 
  2. You can shop directly via our “Thrive Central” Amazon Wishlist: Your purchases will ship directly to the Thrive Shower.

Q: What about handmade or gently used donations? 

We welcome handmade knitted items (hats, booties, blankets, etc) and handmade sewn items! New or very gently used maternity and baby clothing (sized newborn to 2T) is also much appreciated.  Small items such as these can be delivered to the ThriVe Shower bins (on the lower level near the Nursery entrance) on Sunday mornings throughout August.

Q: Who is invited? May I bring a guest?

Please consider bringing a friend or family member to join you! This event is open to all (men or women), and children may attend when accompanied by a parent.
