What To Expect
What do I wear?
You’re free to wear what you’re most comfortable in. There’s no expectation for you to look any certain way here. Many wear suits, while others dress more casual. The only guidelines are for those involved during the services.
How long are the services?
Our Sunday morning service typically lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes. Wednesday service starts at 7pm and ends at 8.
Does it matter what denomination I come from?
We just want to share and study the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ together with you. So, come on out and enjoy God with us, no matter what denomination you come from. Everybody is welcome here.
Will I be asked to stand or talk on my first visit?
You’ll be welcomed lovingly, but not called out or embarrassed by being asked to stand up to introduce yourself.
Do I need to bring a Bible?
We do recommend that you bring a Bible and a notebook with you. We refer to scripture often. If you do forget your Bible, no problem, we have plenty for you to borrow.
Do you have something for the kids?
We offer fun, creative, and engaging children’s programs for toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary age children. We don’t just babysit children, we teach them the Bible in relevant ways for their age level.
In October of 2009, Ken and Lisa Ossman of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, were called and directed by the Lord to pastor Hillcrest Christian Fellowship in Muskogee. For the next three years, they faithfully preached God’s word, seeing prayers answered and growth in the church. In 2012, through the direction of the Lord, we began to prayerfully seek specific direction and the vision for the body of Hillcrest Christian Fellowship.
In 2014, the church became known as Thrive Family Church. With this name came the specific mission, vision, and direction.
Thrive Family Church is primed and ready to reach out to the local community and beyond through the power and direction of the Holy Spirit.
Thrive Family Church exists to reach people with the love, Word and power of God, to see them set free, transformed, thriving in life, preparing believers for the work of service and to honor the Lord with their lives.
