This Weekend’s Party

IMG_8038

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.
