"Through the power of Christ, we are learning to live in simplicity, thankfulness, contentment and
generosity in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana."

Game night returns

 
 
 
Sixteen turned out tonight for game night! Snacks, fresh pop-corn (on the stove, thanks, Mary Costello!), and lasagna were on hand to fortify the game players!

A prayer for Autumn


Autumn Magic by Maja Lindberg
Maya Lindberg
God of all seasons, we thank you for Autumn.
We thank you for the touch of coolness in the air that gives us a new burst of energy, 
for the coloring of trees that shows the creativity of the Divine Artist,
for the falling leaves that reveal the strength of the branches,
for the hues of fields that bring peace to our souls,
for the smiles on pumpkins that bring joy to children,
for the fall harvest which that brings us gratitude for the bounty of our land,
for this change of seasons that reveals the circle of life.
God of all seasons, as you transform the earth, transform us by your Spirit.
Amen


- Doug Leonhardt, S.J.

A damp Wednesday in the Valley


Worship on Wednesday was a rich time of great chili (thanks, Dean Diers), sharing hymns from some of Pastor Charles' old hymnals (the oldest is from 1818), and communion using part John Wesley's communion liturgy.

Let's go WOW!

Come out tonight at 6 pm for some delicious soup,
a time of reflection, and communion!

The Choir is back

It was a dark and rainy night in the Bitterroot Valley (thank God!) but that didn't deter the members of the choir from answering the call for choir practice!
