Skull Church Majestic and Fresh Life Easter

Skull Church Majestic

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.

Fresh Life Easter

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. For details on times and locations, or to download promotional artwork, visit www.freshlifeeaster.com.

Would you like to intern at Fresh Life?

We are super excited to announce that for the first time we are offering internships at Fresh Life. If your heart resonates with what God is doing in and through our church in the state of Montana and beyond and feel an irresistible call to the wild you should apply. There are several different tracks available but we are keeping the spaces limited so it stays small, agile and doesn’t become unwieldy.

Who knows what adventures await you… Will you wrestle grizzly bears? Meet your future spouse? Become incredibly addicted to huckleberries? Help us drive the devil out of Montana? There are no guarantees except that it is not for the faint of heart and you will get out of it what you put into it. Also it is guaranteed that you will be cold. How cold exactly? So cold that cows die. They just drop over, frozen solid.

Full disclosure: this is our first time doing anything like this so there will be kinks we haven’t worked out that we will discover along the way. If your feathers are easily ruffled and you need everything to be dotted and crossed perfectly maybe you should wait for a future season to take part. On the other hand maybe we will hate it and never ever offer any thing like it again. This could be your one and only opportunity to be a Fresh Life intern.

Tons of info and applications here, the deadline to apply is January 1st. Good luck!


Arrows

This weekend we kick off a brand new series called Arrows! I am thrilled to spend this fall at freshlife learning to live towards the target. This will be the first message series I have ever preached on the family and I am extremely fired up to let out all that has been brewing in my heart. You are welcome to join us on the journey!

It Takes an Army

When I think back to this past weekend what comes to mind is Nehemiah 4:6 “So we built the wall. And all the wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.” When people are united in vision towards a common goal and energized by God’s Holy Spirit there is no limit to what can be achieved. Easter weekend 2014 at Fresh Life is living proof of that to me!

In the history of our church we have never pulled off a larger, more intense, or more complicated event than this. Since opening our 6th campus in Bozeman 6 weeks ago we now have a lot of moving pieces: musicians and manpower all over Montana, rented venues in 3 cities, more complicated than normal streaming demands and in Kalispell we are in the largest facility in town, a rodeo arena to convert into a church. And lemme tell you, it takes an army!

And that’s exactly what we have. An army. A ton of fully caffeinated, dedicated and passionate, microphone rocking fresh lifers who have a mind to work. Filled with the Spirit and in one accord. It is staggering to watch God bless our unity by causing the oil to flow as our sails and souls are filled. Best of all, as we let down our nets at skull church and fresh life Easter we saw people respond to Jesus all across the state!

Seven years of Fresh Life

20140114-094444.jpg

Today is the birthday of Fresh Life Church, but it’s not just any birthday, it’s our seventh. That makes it extra special because seven is a great number. It’s always been my favorite, but like I tell my daughters, I am pretty sure it is God’s favorite number too! If it’s not, it’s certainly up there because He sure uses it a lot in the Bible.

Plus think about this, Fresh Life started on January 14, 2007. On that Sunday morning 14 people showed up to our first service, and it was 14 degrees outside. Now that seven years have gone by since 2007, in the year 2014, we are seven! If that doesn’t make this a special birthday for us I don’t know what would. How about the fact that we have seen just under 7,000 people (6,920) make decisions for Christ in these seven years! That’ll about do it.

But my favorite thing about the number seven is that it is a number of completion. A number of fullness. It’s an ending, and after seven comes eight. A number of new beginnings. Even as eight people came out of the ark, eight signifies the start of something brand new. Fresh. Something bristling with potential. As we enter this eighth year of ministry that is our mindset. Glory to God for all He has done! This is just the beginning.

For our birthday we are streaming the fresh life story (a documentary we made about how the church began) all day long for free here.


When we stop worshipping, we stop winning

Praise is powerful. Worship is a weapon. We must approach every battle with arms raised and swords drawn. We are to do everything we can do but we must trust God for what only He can do. When we stop worshipping, we stop winning.
