Thrive! University

Support Ministries

There will always be times when you just need a little help and hope. One of our greatest traits as a church family is that we care for and support each other during times of trouble. We have support groups to aid those who are facing tough times, and we’re firmly committed to helping in any way we can.


Thrive! is one of Mobberly’s initiatives in people leading people into a life-changing, ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Designed to provide support to the whole family, Thrive! will provide age-appropriate support for grief, divorce and recovery to kids, students and adults.

Do you see a need for a support group and have the desire to lead?

Celebrate Recovery

Currently: No childcare is available for CR activities

Celebrate Recovery is a recovery program based on the eight principles from the Beatitudes. It is a biblical and balanced program that can help you overcome your hurt, habits, and hang-ups. This program is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory; it is more effective in helping people change than anything else seen or heard of. Over the years the Holy Spirit has used this program to transform literally thousands of lives and can help people grow toward full Christlike maturity.

Celebrate Recovery Step Studies

Women’s Step Study – New group starting soon, email [email protected] to be added to the list.

Men’s Step Study – New group starting soon, email [email protected] to be added to the list.

A Step Study is how we work through our hurts, habits, and hang-ups. We use Participant Guides to direct us on a personal journey through each of the 12 steps and 8 recovery principles.

Step Study Groups are gender-specific and led by men or women who have completed a step study themselves. Initially, Step Studies are open to new additions. Once the group has completed the first Participant Guide (through Step 3), the group is closed to new people.

Family Services / Benevolence

Mobberly’s Family Services benevolence ministry seeks to minister to both the spiritual and physical needs of church family members and community members. On Tuesday mornings Gregg County residents can apply for assistance with eviction notices, utility shut-off notices, gasoline, as well as hearing about a life-changing relationship with Jesus. Mobberly’s Barnabas Ministry seeks to help a small number of selected families with not only financial assistance but mentoring and support through Connect Group relationships. Mobberly members can receive financial and spiritual support from this ministry as well.

A dedicated team of lay members receives, processes, and counsels with the people God sends through the Family Services ministry. Resources for this ministry are provided through the annual Ministry Action Plan, direct contributions to benevolence, and an annual church-wide rummage sale. If you want to volunteer in this ministry, email [email protected].

If you need financial assistance, call 903.663.3100.
