We are beginning a new series this weekend at fresh life. Be forewarned, it involves scary clowns.
The messages that I will be giving have been in the works for a long time but they mean even more to me now. In the past 49 days since my daughter went to heaven I have been learning so much that has deepened my understanding about these truths. The themes we will be exploring have been brought to a boil in my heart and are raring to be released.
We have put together a page where you can easily post about the series and send e-vites. If that wasn’t enough of a pitch, it does have an animated elephant gif balancing on a ball. Check it out here. As you pray about who to invite I’ll tell you this, the first message is explicitly evangelistic so it will be a really great opportunity to invite and bring people who need to hear the gospel.
We’re excited to announce that Pastor Steven Furtick from Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC, will be speaking at Fresh Life this weekend! A friend and supporter of the Lusko family, Pastor Steven is the lead pastor of Elevation and gifted writer of the nationally acclaimed “Sun Stand Still” and New York Times best seller “Greater.” Elevation is an explosive movement of God meeting at seven campuses throughout Charlotte, with more than 12,000 in regular attendance. Pastor Steven and Elevation have seen more than 21,000 people come to Christ in the past seven years, so bring a friend this weekend that needs to hear about Jesus! -ADMIN
We are quickly approaching Christmas, it’s just a week away now! And we are going all out to reach as many people as possible with the good news of Christ’s coming. We are having 9 different worship experiences in 3 cities on 2 days and we are believing God is going to do great things! The will also be two opportunities to join in online. Get all the details, post about on social media and send e-vites by clicking here! And remember Christmas isn’t just about having warm and happy moments with people you love–it’s a rescue mission for people who need love!
This Thanksgiving weekend we are beginning a brand new series at fresh life going through the New Testament book of Philemon. It is an amazing little book (just 25 verses) that doesn’t get a lot of attention, but it has a lot to say. R. Kent Hughes called the book of Philemon, “One of the great stories of the gospel and of the Church–a jewel in her crown.” I believe that God is going to do a powerful work in many hearts and lives as take time to study it.
We have set up a page where you can post about the Fugitive series or send out an e-vite to someone who needs to know of God’s love so they can join us at a campus or online. The holidays can be a happy time for people who have the warmth of healthy relationships around them; but it can also be a painful time of regret and loneliness for others who don’t. If you have out of town family staying in your house, what a great opportunity to get them to God’s House! You can visit the Fugitive page here.
This is a huge weekend for us as a church! First of all are we releasing our very first album tomorrow. It’s a music project from Skull Church called When Darkness Shakes that will hit iTunes, Google Play, Amazon first thing tomorrow. Hard copies are available at skullchurch.com as well. To celebrate it’s release we did a 2 part radio special that airs today and tomorrow on fresh life audio, our radio show. The archive is available on the podcast here, it goes into the back story on the songs and you get to hear a sneak peak of a lot of the album. We are praying and believing God is going to use these songs as we they go out.
Tomorrow is also the first night of Skull Church Bozeman! For the next two nights we have taken over the Emerson Theater in the downtown of this amazing city for an evangelistic outreach. In addition to our own house band we will also be joined by Hawk Nelson on Friday and Leeland on night. We are working with many local churches in the area and are praying that many people come to know the Lord as the gospel goes out. Both of these two events will be webcast live at at 7pm MST. Pray about who you can invite to watch online with you and use it as an outreach wherever you are. And either way if you would help spread the word on the internetz once the stream goes live that would be amazing.
If all that weren’t enough…Sunday is also the one year anniversary of our Billings campus. And since Billings is two hours away from Bozeman, in the early morning hours after the final night of Skull Church we will be making that trip for a very special Sunday Morning worship experience at 10am at the Billings West high school. And we are bringing Leeland with us!
Like I said, it’s a huge weekend for us. Needless to say, this is all in addition to all the worship experiences that will be happening in Whitefish and Kalispell, so there will be outreach literally happening all across the state and beyond….So can I ask you to stop and pray for Montana? That God would pour out His Sprit and move in power so that those stranded in sin would find life and liberty in Jesus Christ! Thanks in advance for partnering with us in this way and make sure and buy the Skull Church record tomorrow, or better yet buy ten and give them out for Christmas!
This weekend we announced plans to open a fresh life campus in Missoula, Montana! Our desire is to make Jesus famous and reach as many people with His love as we can; and we are thrilled by the opportunity to see that happen in this great city. Please join us in praying as we continue to plan and prepare for the opening of this, our fifth location. We believe that Jesus will build His church and no one can stop Him!
This weekend we announced that we are beginning a brand new television outreach. Nothing fires me up more than the prospect of getting God’s Word to people, especially those who wouldn’t necessarily ever step foot in a church building. We are already seeing so much fruit from our podcasts, radio broadcasts and live event streams, and now thanks to cable, and satellite there is yet another avenue for the gospel to be sent into homes.
1 Thessalonians 1:8 comes to mind, “And now the word of the Lord is ringing out from you to people everywhere, even beyond Macedonia and Achaia, for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God. We don’t need to tell them about it,” I like to think of someone sitting in a motel room, lonely and despondent, binging through the channels and “accidentally” coming in contact with the God who made them. We might not know until eternity just how God uses this new venture of faith.
The program will air every Sunday morning at 9:30am on The CW in the following areas: Butte, Bozeman, Missoula, Billings and the Flathead Valley. If you live in one of these areas or know someone who does tell them to tune in or set their dvrs. Please join with us and pray that the Lord would use it powerfully!
This weekend are beginning a brand new series at fresh life and we’d love to have you be a part! Join us at one of our locations in Montana or online. You can also visit this page to post about the One Thing series online and send out E-vites.
Pastor Pedro Garcia, a good friend of our house and a brother in the faith, has come up from Miami, Florida and will be preaching at all fresh life worship experiences this weekend. His radio program Life Radio can be heard each week day in Billings and the Flathead Valley on Fresh Life Radio and this is his first time ever speaking on a weekend in Montana. If you have never heard him before, you don’t want to miss it–he is a white-hot communicator! Invite a friend and join us at one of our locations or online.
