Missoula Adventist Church Meets Via 'Zoom'
 

After not meeting together since March 14th, at least 31 individuals from 17 Missoula-area Adventist homes joined together in a Zoom service of fellowship, prayer and worship. It was a joyful occasion as fellow believers, who have not had opportunities to collectively interact with each other in 4 weeks, were able to re-connect and "see" each other via this video-conferencing technology.


Following a season of testimonies and prayer, Pastor Bill Whitney of the Hamilton-Stevensville-Darby district shared the sermon titled “Seven Reasons Why Jesus Is Coming Again." The message was well received and a blessing to the congregation. After the sermon and closing prayer, plans were laid for continuing the services for the following weeks. The entire service was a joyful experience for the church family.
 

The service was made possible through the untiring efforts of Dexter Royes, a Management Consultant, and member of the Missoula Church as a means to keep the local congregation engaged.

Recent Praise and Prayer Request
"Had an awesome experience this morning! We had an inspection done on our house and found a problem with the furnace. The service guy came and fixed it and said he wouldn't charge us because it should have been caught and fixed when we did our yearly maintenance in October. Praise the Lord! He also said he would pray that we sell our house since this is a hard time to sell and that he has had many answers to his prayers!" C.G.
