This Week's Worship

Dear Friends,  

As I look ahead to the coming Sunday, my last as your Associate Pastor at UCC Missoula, my world is more than a little chaotic—I have moved out of my church office, my calendar is full of reminders, my free-time is full of sorting and organizing everything at home. Of course, the pandemic continues, AND I just got new glasses, which require some adjustment! Phew!  

Yet, I know you, UCC Missoula, as a calm place in the storm for so many people including me. When I started working with you in late 2015, my father had died in a bicycle accident that July. I cried through every staff meeting and most days on the way to work. You welcomed me generously and gently. When I was ready you gave me room to grow. You challenged and encouraged me.

Our worship theme this fall is “Covenants as Steppingstones of Faith.” You, UCC Missoula, are a steady steppingstone. You have provided stability, support, and stable jumping off places for me and for many. Now, I am turning onto a different path to serve Pilgrim Congregational UCC in Bozeman. My covenantal promises to serve you as your pastor will change.  

No matter where the unknowns of the future lead us, I trust that you will be a steady, loving spiritual home for many more people who seek joy and justice in the Way of Jesus. Thank you for your steadiness, your hope, and your love. I thank God for you.

Blessings and love on your journey,

Pastor Laura

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.

Rev. Dr. Jennifer Yocum (she/her) is a storytelling, kayak-paddling, gaze-in-wonder-at-God-in-the-world kind of person.


Rev. Laura Folkwein

Associate Pastor

Laura (she/her) is passionate about strengthening communities, treating all people with dignity and respect, and connecting people to care for and advocate with each other.
