Thrive Groups

THRIVE groups are where the true work of the church occurs. We believe that it is virtually impossible to grow in our relationship with the Lord Jesus without having the committed, redemptive relationships that THRIVE groups provide.

THRIVE groups are small groups consisting ideally of 4-12 people. THRIVE groups are open to all people who desire to join together with other believers to worship God and seek His face.

Why Join Our Thrive Groups

Van & Transportation Ministry

The Van & Transportation Ministry is dedicated to transporting to and from church, people who would otherwise be unable to have fellowship and attend the activities and worship services of our church.


A church should be a place of peace, a safe haven where we can worship and experience God’s love and grace away from the conflicts of the world. We expect a church to be the safest place in our community, and at TFP we take security serious. God is our ultimate protector and we are thankful for The Blood of Jesus that covers.

TV & Media

The Fire Place television program airs weekly on the CTN network. Pastors Robb & Shanda are frequent guest hosts on the nationally syndicated program, Nashville Alive on the TCT network. (check local listings for times) They can also be seen on various networks such as Daystar & TBN. You can always watch us via Live Stream every Sunday or view our vast catalog on line.

Fire Place Kids

We Believe that Jesus can live Big in even the smallest of children. We look at our children as our most valuable possession and we do our best to strive for excellence in this area of ministry. Our Children’s Ministry is divided into three groups: Little Embers Nursery (Birth through Pr-K, Wee Warriors (Pr-K through 1st grade) and Kids Ignited (2nd-5th grade).

Altared Youth

ALTARED Youth are all about pointing people to the ultimate source of adventure and purpose – a life following Jesus. We’re about raising up a generation to reach the nations.
