FEBRUARY ANNUAL MEETING
The church's annual meeting will be held on Sunday, Feb 9th, in the Lower Level Fellowship Hall immediately following a single worship service at 10:00 am. Join us for a potluck lunch, a highlight of last year's activities, and planning for next year's ministries. Members are invited to vote on special elections and updates to our church constitution!

BELONG. RECLAIM. ACT.
Confluence is a new community partnership for all ages supported by multiple denominations. We emphasize honest conversations as we de-tangle faith narratives from systems of oppression, creating a more compassionate world through our words and actions. Join us Sundays from 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the UCC Fireside Room at 405 University Ave, Missoula. On the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Sundays of the month we ground ourselves in faith, reclaiming sacred stories that bring us into relationship with each other and all of God's creation. On the 4th Sunday of every month we connect to each other and strategize action on social issues alongside friends, neighbors, and Missoula organizations. For more information or to contact us with questions, visit our website at confluencemissoula.org.
We love to give our younger children a special place in our church family and Sunday worship, so we literally put them first! Our PrayGround is a space at the front of the sanctuary designed for children to be active participants in every worship service. This space features quiet activities for kids during worship, and our youth director is present to guide them through the rhythms of worship in ways they can understand. Kids are invited to sing and pray with the whole congregation. A children’s lesson helps them connect to the Bible stories that shape our faith, and playing is always an option! All children are welcome, and parents can feel free to stay with their children at the PrayGround or sit in a nearby pew. We hope that the PrayGround is an engaging place for children to be present in the worshiping community and is of service to parents who want to direct their focus toward participating more fully on Sunday mornings.
