This weekend marked tremendous moments in the life of our church – from the fifth annual Skull Church on Good Friday at the Majestic Valley Arena, to the launch of our first EP from Fresh Life Worship (get it here!), wrapping up with Fresh Life Easter reaching people in more places than ever .
The party began Friday night as we filled the Majestic to celebrate the most heroic thing that has ever been done – Jesus coming to earth to save us from our sins. This Skull Church is extra special because it’s held on Good Friday, the day Jesus defeated death and declared victory over it. Guest artist Trip Lee opened the night with a killer performance, followed by our Skull Church band, with the night culminating in many making decisions for Christ! The sacrifice of Jesus death-proofed our lives and that’s what Skull Church is all about.
On Sunday we celebrated the resurrection of Christ with more worship experiences than ever before, reaching from the Majestic Valley Arena in the Flathead Valley, to Billings, Missoula and Bozeman, we gathered in five different cities across Montana! In addition to an online and radio audience, we also had our first ever Fresh Life Easter at our network site in Polson.
I spoke on a verse I’d never preached about before – Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (This verse is particularly special to me – I had it stamped on the first Bible I bought after I gave my life to Jesus.) It was an honor to tell others about the life they were born to live in Christ.
Between Skull Church Majestic and Fresh Life Easter we saw hundreds of people from our different locations and online commit their lives to Christ. There is nothing better.
Last night was not only an incredible evening at our first and flagship Skull Church of 2015, we also announced the launch of our first ever EP! Titled “Glorious,” the EP from Fresh Life Worship features three tracks from the upcoming full length album, “Fall Afresh,” due out later this year. The tracks, “Glorious,” “Oxygen” and “You Will Never Let Go,” are such a special and important part of our church and we’re excited to share them with you.
We have received countless requests from people all over the world asking when or where they could download music they heard on the weekend at Fresh Life, the O2 Experience or Skull Church – and we are so happy about this project. We’ve been anticipating the release of music from Fresh Life Worship for a long time, and this is a historical moment in the life of our church. We believe God has and will continue to use this music for His glory! You can download the EP on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon MP3, and get album artwork, promotional images for social media and EP info here.
We’re filled with anticipation as we approach the first Skull Church of 2015 this Friday, April 3. (Which also happens to be Good Friday.) We ended 2014 on an exciting note with an incredible fall tour through Idaho, Montana and Washington and are kicking off this year returning to the Majestic Valley Arena, Northwest Montana’s largest venue, for the fifth consecutive year. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the night beginning at 7 p.m. You can join us live online that evening at skullchurch.com, and if you’d like to spread the word and invite your friends, we’ve got promotional art available for download here.
On the heels of Skull Church Majestic, this Sunday, April 5 marks the fifth anniversary of Easter in the Majestic Valley Arena in the Flathead Valley (Kalispell and Whitefish), with Easter worship experiences also being held in Billings, Bozeman, Missoula and live online at freshlifeeaster.com. This means we will be meeting in five cities across the state this Easter Sunday and in the Bible, five is the number of grace. We’re remembering the grace of God and His faithfulness as we’re trusting him with more Easter worship experience times than ever before.
