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?
FPC is grateful to be gathering for worship at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. And you are welcome to join us! We celebrate the Lord’s Supper the first Sunday of each month.
You can also join our Sunday worship service streaming live, then posted as a recording. The link will be the same whether you can join us live or later. See below or join us on our Facebook page at 'First Presbyterian Church Missoula'.

Pentecost Worship with FPC | May 28th, 2023 | Acts 2:1-4; Romans 8:14-39
This Sunday we celebrate the Day of Pentecost.
Pentecost was and is a Jewish festival that comes fifty days after the Passover. It celebrates the harvest and the giving of the Law to Moses on Mount Sinai. And so this day of Jewish thanksgiving celebrates God’s provision – both God’s provision of plenty to eat and God’s provision of instruction for life. For as much as we hunger for food, we thirst for the truth, for what is good and right.
Do you know what happened on the Day of Pentecost following Jesus’ resurrection and ascension? I invite you to read Acts 2.
On Pentecost followers of Jesus celebrate the gift of God’s Spirit, poured out on his apprentices just as Christ promised. And so, on Sunday we celebrate the ultimate gift of provision: the Lord, the Giver of Life, providing God’s unlimited presence to comfort, convict, encourage, and advocate for us in the way of Jesus. We celebrate God’s self-giving, that we might be drawn by the Spirit into the forever communion of unconditional love between the Father and the Son like a child being drawn into the embrace between her mother and father.
Come to worship wearing red to celebrate the fire of God’s Spirit!
We will be together in the sanctuary for worship this week
