Our Newest Ministry

Confluence is a faith community growing out of Christian tradition and wisdom and open to diverse perspectives. Through spiritual practice, intentional conversation, social action, and having fun, we seek to learn from one another as we revision a deeper connection to our own faith that prepares us to be instruments of healing, peace, and justice in the world. Confluence is meant to be a creative, engaged community that leaves space for doubts, difficult questions, and dialogue on topics such as politics, climate change, ecology, sexuality, racism, feminism and more. We will be working together through listening and shared leadership to offer anyone who is seeking to reclaim their spirituality a space in which to do so. Confluence is welcoming and affirming to people of all perspectives, histories and identities.

We meet every Sunday of the month from 6:00 - 8:00 pm in the Fireside room located on the west end of the UCC building (405 University Ave). Drinks and dinner are between 6 and 6:45pm and our spiritual practice from about 6:45-7:45.

Our Location

We are located at 202 Brooks Street in Missoula, MT, behind Rockin' Rudy's and one block from the intersection between Brooks and Higgins.

Communicating Climate Change

Massive wildfires, Catastrophic hurricanes, extreme droughts...this summer was one for the books.
If you feel saddened and disturbed by the impacts of these climate-enabled disasters and want to respond but are not sure how…  If you feel unsure about how to talk about climate change with family, friends, or members of your faith community and want to learn more and build your confidence…

Here’s your opportunity! Join Faith and Climate Action for our first Education and Action summit of the 2017-18 year on Monday, October 23rd, 6:00 - 8:00 pm at UCC Church in the Fireside room (405 University Ave). At this gathering, we'll share a meal, learn proven strategies for communicating effectively about climate change, and consider how to use these strategies to increase understanding and inspire action in our own communities. Finally, hear about opportunities to take action and get more involved in the faithful climate movement. To learn more or RSVP, check out the Facebook event, email [email protected] -- or just come on the 23rd!

Solar Electric Project

As part of our goal to care for creation, we're raising money to  install an array of solar panels to offset our current electric demand. 

Between now and November 1st, we have a goal of raising a minimum of $7,600, or 10% of the solar panel installation cost, in order to qualify for a crucial NorthWestern Energy grant.  We've so far raised $4,030 from 17 households.  Please consider making a contribution to this effort by writing "solar project" in the memo of your check.  You may also choose to donate by debit/credit card or ACH on our website here; choose the "other" fund and write "solar" in the memo line.

Thank you for considering stewardship of our energy resources!
