“Traction Control, Pt. 7″

During our “Traction Control” series, we have studied the Unshakeable Kingdom, how to keep traction with people close to us, different from us, and in difficult circumstances, and the Biblical view of marriage. We will close out our series with our passage’s discussion of leaders and our response to them (Hebrews 13:7-19). While we will speak of leaders in general, I desire to give you a peek into a pastor’s heart, as well.


Zookidz is a dynamic ministry geared for children from birth through 5th grade. We strive not to just provide ‘childcare’ during our three weekend services, but to allow children a place to grow spiritually and an opportunity to meet Jesus.

CLC youth

We create opportunities for middle school and high school student to grow in their relationship with Christ through weekly services, small groups, events, activities, and discipleship classes and mentoring.

Connect Groups

When you enter the work world, you hear that “it is all about your connections.”  We do become like those we connect with; we learn from them and make meaningful contributions to one another.

University Students

XA (Chi Alpha) Christian Fellowship is a missional outreach to students at The University of Montana. During the school year, Pursuit (our weekly gathering) meets every Wednesday at 7:30pm in the Urey Lecture Hall. Chi Alpha desires to be a community of worship and mission on the campus of UM.


Christian Life Center believes in Seniors. Your age factor does not lessen your value to ministry or importance in life. Seniors are a tremendous asset to the church and to the community.  Join us each week as we sing your favorite old hymns, learn spiritual truths in a short message, and enjoy a time of fellowship.

Ministry Opportunities

CLC offers numerous ministry opportunities including:  Easter drama, food pantry, Bible studies, prison ministry, Women’s Bible study and fellowship events, prayer meeting, and more.

Traditional Gathering: 9:00am

This gathering is designed to remember and celebrate our past heritage with today’s heart.  You will enjoy a rich selection of choruses and hymns during corporate worship and be encouraged by a sermon from our lead pastor.

Quality nursery care for children 0-2 years of age begins at the beginning of the service.  Children attending 1st service (3-yrs – 6th grade) worship with their parents before being dismissed to their respective classes. Classes are broken up into Critter Land (preschool) and Zoo City (K-6th grades).
