We Gather on Sundays @ North Valley Senior Center
205 Nucleus Ave Columbia Falls, MT  59912
Join Us @ 10:00am

August 27, September 3, 10

Almost a year ago, the concept of this potential marriage between our two churches began to surface. The questions and conversations were never about one church rescuing or taking over another church, but could we be better together for the sake of God's Kingdom? Could we impact CFalls with the gospel more effectively together? Could we have a greater impact in the Valley and Montana together? Could we become a stronger more unified church together? Yes, we knew changes would happen for both of our church families, but the desire was for us to become something new as we might enter into this marriage. We want to keep our eyes fixed on impacting God's Kingdom.  After much prayer and conversations, we believe the marriage of these two churches into one new church will allow us to be more effective in our own spiritual maturity as well as to reach and serve the needs of Columbia Falls and beyond with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Below you will find our final stages in this process and the next steps that need to take place as we seek to marry our two churches.  You can find other information regarding our marriage here.

Join Us

Join us in seeing a movement of God across the Northwest. Learn more about one of our residencies below.

For two months this summer, join God in what He is doing. Learn the basics of engaging the city, making disciples, and planting a church.

This is a 1-3 year commitment to church planting training. It is an endorsed position with the North American Mission Board. The internship consists of online modules, practical ministry, and coaching.

If God has called you to the Northwest, join us for a year to learn ministry in a church planting context, continue training, and be sent by Gateway with a team of people to launch a new work.
