Some parents lament the lack of a manual to help guide our efforts to raise strong, independent adults in a world where information is available at an exponentially increasing pace and our understanding of humanity continues to evolve. A joint ministry with St. Paul’s Anglican Church and Essex United, Thrive! A living manual for families is our way of providing a space for food, fellowship, conversation, education, comradery, and grace in the midst of the challenges and wonders of being family today.
