This Week's Worship

We continue to journey with Jesus in his Bridge season between resurrection and ascension. This week we face our learning through doing. The mantra of “show me don’t tell me” could be Thomas’ words as he hears stories of Jesus’ appearance but has not seen Jesus himself. I want to be like Thomas. Let us learn by practicing worship together and leaning on each other in this space of faith and doubt. John 20:24-29 is our text. We hope you’ll join us in person or online at 10 a.m.

Open and Affirming

Open and Affirming (ONA) is the United Church of Christ's (UCC) designation for congregations, campus ministries, and other bodies in the UCC which make a public covenant of welcome into their full life and ministry to persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. UCC Missoula became an ONA Church in 1993, and we have LGBTQ people active in leadership and in all areas of church life.

Creation Justice Covenant

We created a Creation Justice Covenant to guide how we care for God’s creation. The covenant is also part of UCC Missoula becoming a Creation Justice Church within United Church of Christ.

Climate crisis is an urgent, all-encompassing, worldwide emergency. In affirming the divine gifts of creation and in affirming our connection to God, each other, and the world around us, we unconditionally commit ourselves as individuals and as a congregation to the intertwined responsibilities of caring for creation and seeking justice for the oppressed. With purposeful resolve, we commit ourselves with an awareness of how the abuses of creation inevitably cause human suffering and of how factors such as race, class, and global inequality inevitably cause some to suffer more than others.

Small Groups

Small groups are a wonderful way to deepen your relationship with God and with the community at UCC. At our church, we joyfully believe that humans, in all of our beautiful and complex diversity, are created in the image of God, so building relationships with each other is sacred work.

Small groups happen in many forms at our church. Some meet long term (for years!), others gather for a 4-6 week study on a specific book or topic, and still others gather to learn a skill or complete a project. Our Contemplative Prayer Group meets every Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m., and other prayer groups are often formed during the special seasons of Lent (spring) and Advent (winter). Anyone can drop in on Theology Pub, which gathers monthly at a local brewery or coffee shop for discussion and fun. Small groups include retreats 2-4 times each year, on or off-site, and our annual Contemplative Backpack trip for 15+ years. Getting involved in a small group will help you grow spiritually, mentally, socially, and through serving others.


We encourage worshiping God 24/7, but we gather on Sundays at 10 a.m. to sing, pray, and learn together. Worship is "traditional" in some ways and improvisational in others. Every week has a theme based on scripture and every theme points us toward some new or refreshed understanding of who we are called to be as God's people in the world.

We celebrate a wide variety of musical styles. We showcase two adult choirs, Flute choir, Bell choir, Woodwind ensemble, String ensemble, Brass ensemble, organ, piano, guitar, drums and solo instrumentalists and voices. Our children's ministry program also produces two musicals each year.

Our Ministry Team

We proudly claim that our ministers are "all the members of the church." Meet our staff of amazingly talented, motivated, and compassionate people who supports our larger ministry.
