- Life Stages
Hearing these words can abruptly turn your world upside down. Your life is suddenly consumed with doctor appointments and treatment schedules, all while dealing with overwhelming emotions; shock, disbelief, fear, anger, sadness and a sense of loss. Women who have received this diagnosis embark on a journey of becoming cancer survivors. Learning to live with a potentially life threatening disease is a significant physical, emotional, social, and spiritual challenge. It sometimes represents the greatest challenge to one's faith.
The purpose of Thrive is to provide Christ-centered support for women going through the roller-coaster ride that a cancer diagnosis carries. It brings together women to talk about their needs and feelings as they face the common struggle of living with cancer. We provide a safe place to share your feelings and challenges, and to learn from others who have traveled this journey before. We discuss topics such as living with strong feelings, challenges to faith, changing perspectives, and will include guest speakers.
No matter where you are on your cancer journey, newly diagnosed, undergoing treatment, having a recurrence or been cancer free for some time, we invite you to join us for loving support, encouragement, understanding, and the hope that faith, prayer and Jesus Christ can bring.
Let’s THRIVE together!

At Bethel we offer Pure Desire groups for men and women affected by love and sex addiction. Our groups are a safe place to find healing, receive freedom from shame and past hurts, and find your own redemption story as God releases you from the pattern of sexual sin that has held you captive for so long.
