Easter Sunday

Mosaic of the Resurrected Christ, in Ravenna, Italy (526 AD).

Join us this Easter Sunday (April 20th) as we explore one of the most significant claims in Christianity - Christ's Resurrection! For nearly two millennia, followers of Jesus from all over globe have radically reoriented their lives around this particular Sunday. What's the big deal? Come see for yourself.

We meet on Sunday at 10 AM in the Missoula Children's Theatre Lobby (200 N. Adams). There's coffee and hot cross buns beforehand at 9:30 AM. The service itself will last about an hour and a half. Together, we'll read, sing pray, and ponder. There's a nursery space and children's worship for kids 5 and under.

Whether you are a longtime follower of Jesus, or simply someone who's spiritually curious, we'd love to have you explore faith with us!

We'll have an Easter Egg Hunt for children and a Potluck Lunch at Ryan & Rachel's (2704 Emery Place ~ 529-2468). after the service! We hope you will join us!

Good Friday Service

If Good Friday is the day when Christians remember Jesus' brutal death on a Roman cross, how could it possibly be considered "good"? And why on earth would we celebrate it? Great questions! Why not explore them together with us?

We invite you to join us for a dark-yet-beautiful glimpse into one of the oldest of Christian traditions Friday, April 18th at 7:30 PM as we gather to celebrate a very special Good Friday service in the lobby of the Missoula Children's Theatre (200 N Adams).

The service will be somber and reflective, yet deeply optimistic and hopeful. Regardless of your spiritual convictions (or lack thereof), this is a great chance to work on your own spirituality by considering the claims of Christianity in regard to this seminal moment in human history. Hope to see you there!

Jesus and the Den of Robbers (Matthew 21:1-22)

Jesus' triumphal entry has a hue shadow cast upon it by two other events that happen immediately after - the cleansing of the Temple and the cursing of the fig tree. What do these three things have in common and why does Jesus enact these two curses at this climactic moment? [Ryan Sutherland]

Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties, this sermon was not recorded. Sorry for the inconvenience.

No More Offerings (Hebrews 10:1-18)

The ministry of Jesus Christ has freed us from the need to make offerings like the people did in the Old Testament (in order to make purification for sin); while simultaneously freeing us to be able to make offerings out of gratitude and love. [Ryan Sutherland]
