For Such a Time as This...
The world as we encounter it today is the current context in which First Presbyterian Church has been asked to answer God's calling to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. By building relationships that matter for faith, by deepening roots in Christ, by worshipping together, by caring for one another, and by seeking extravagant ways to serve our community, we long to bear witness to a hope greater than our fears. What if it's for such a time as this that we've been called to trust in Jesus Christ with all our hearts, watch for unexpected mercies and surprise Missoula with Christ's astonishing love?
First Presbyterian Church of Missoula seeks a reliable and capable, part-time secretary to work closely with pastors, other staff
and volunteers to support our mission to surprise Missoula with Christ’s astonishing love.
Paid time off and holidays, retirement savings plan, pay in lieu of medical benefits.

Advent Worship with FPC | December 4th, 2022 | Luke 1:26-38
Martin Luther said that Christian faith is like a wedding ring setting that receives the jewel of Christ. Can you see that in your mind’s eye? Only the setting can hold the diamond. What if the only frame for the multifaceted delight of knowing Christ is the spectacular risk to entrust him with your life?
That would compare Christian faith to answering a proposal with ‘Yes, I do.’
This week we will hear an angel of the Lord present young Mary with a breathtaking invitation. Will she welcome being overshadowed by the Holy Spirit? Will she entrust herself to God’s grace, power and love? Will she risk saying, ‘Yes, I do. Yes, I will’?
Frederick Buechner imagined the angel ‘trembling with fear to think that the whole future of creation hung now on the answer of a girl.’
But doesn’t the bearing of Christ into the world hang on how you and I answer such a proposal every, every day?
You may wish to wonder, How is the Lord inviting me to take a risk of faith on him today?
We will be together in the Sanctuary at 9:30am. You can also click this link to live-stream our worship (or view it afterward):
