no. if you want thicker strings just widen the nut more.

well i went to my local music store to see if i could get a light B string in the E nut, and my E string was thicker. So i have a pretty thick E string and i cant get really thick strings because i need to play in standard tuning at church every week.

so idk what to do :X

^I would second that, if not a five string, then a BEAD four string with a dedicated wide nut. Or you could play your church gig in Drop-C. I thought all the gospel guys played in low tunings anyway (something about the Spirit being in the subs...) but that might be a gross ignorance on my behalf between gospel and church.
Other ways of increasing string tuning, I suppose, would be to use through body stringing, or to use a different tuner arrangement (or monorail bridge setup), but that would mean a fair amount of modification. My vote goes to using a pair of basses, or possibly an octave pedal (on which there was a thread a while ago)
