Welcome!

Here is some key information which we hope will be helpful to you.

Where is the church?

We meet weekly on Sunday mornings at Petra Academy (4720 Classical Way) in Bozeman.

When are the services?

The Sunday Worship Services are at 8:30 AM and 11 AM.
There are Discipleship Classes for all ages from nursery to adult at 10 AM.

(Summer hours: Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend we worship at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM.)

How should I dress?

Some people dress up to go to church; others dress casually. Most people in our church dress in a “smart/nice casual” manner. Feel free to dress as you feel most comfortable.

How long is the service?

Sunday Worship Service lasts about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

What are your sermons about?

We strive to present sermons that are biblically based with an emphasis on what God has done in Jesus Christ. Even if you do not agree with the message, you will probably find the sermons to be thoughtful, engaging, and even challenging.

What do you offer for children?

While we encourage our children to participate in the service as much as possible, we offer nursery for our infants during the service and a Worship Training Program for children PreK and K/1 during the sermon and communion portion of the service.

Where can I find coffee?

Following the service, we hope you will stay for a while so we have the opportunity to meet you.  Please join us for a fresh cup of coffee in the atrium.

I’m not a Christian.

Welcome. We hope to be a safe place for people to visit and check things out without feeling any obligation. So whether you are convinced or unconvinced, lost or found, burned, bored, cynical, or spiritual, regardless of your beliefs or doubts, this is a place for you to explore Christianity and learn what it means to follow Jesus in community.

Will I feel out of place if I haven’t lived a very moral life?

God’s message of grace is for morally flawed people like us: broken, imperfect, and loved beyond our understanding. We do not show up because we are good; we show up because we need Jesus.

I feel burned out by organized religion.

We are not promoting a religion, something we do; we are promoting the gospel (which means “the good news” about what God has done and is doing). Religion makes nice people; the gospel makes new people. Religion reforms you on the outside; the gospel transforms you from inside out.
