Sunday, March 3rd at Noon (immediately following service), please join us for lunch and open discussion of our 11:00am contemporary “Rejoice” service. We will discuss how we can better serve the congregation and improve our worship experience together. Questions include:

  • Is the liturgy important to you? What parts?
  • What is music’s role in worship?
  • How has worship evolved? How should it continue to do so?

All are welcome, but we especially request the presence of members that regularly attend the 11:00 o’clock service. If you are interested in sharing your feedback or knowing what’s going on, please join us!

WOW Retreat

February 16-18, 2019 at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp

This year’s WOW retreat will be held at Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp February 16-18, 2019! The weekend will be filled with delicious food, games by the fire, sing-alongs, skits, small group discussions, and outrageous adventures!  Be sure to invite a friend along for this awesome weekend. 

This  year’s theme is:  Jesus is my Superhero

How do we live out Superhero faith? Everyday we are bombarded with making different choices, challenged to uphold our values, and live a faith-filled life which Christ calls us to live out each and everyday. It can be complicated to prioritizing all that we must accomplish in a day and tough to ensure that we make God a part of it all. Putting Christ first, in our lives, gives us superhero faith and the ability to fully experience all that God has planned for our life.
