Where do you hold services?
Petra currently assembles on Sunday mornings at 1804A North Avenue West, Missoula, Montana, at 10:00am. Beginning July 10, 2022, Petra will gather at FairBridge Conference Center on the corner of Reserve and Brooks.
I have not attended church in a long time. Will I feel welcomed?
YES! We realize that sometimes it is very difficult for people to make the committment to walk through the doors of a "church," especially if you do not know anyone. Here at Petra you will be our honored guest. We will make you feel welcomed and loved.
Do we have to dress up to come to church?
No, please come as you are!
I want more than just a "church service." How is Petra different?
Petra believes in relationship, not religion. While we do hold weekly meetings on Sunday, much like a traditional church does, and while we do have structure, Petra believes and practices the concept that true outreach and discipleship takes place outside the four-walls of a meeting room. We hold Life Group meetings ("Living in Fellowship Everyday"), we have various discipleship ministries (Petra Youth, Men's Ministry, etc.), and we believe in studying the Bible together in the intimacy of the home. For Petra, church is our life, and we want to do life with you!
What does Petra offer for children?
Petra is currently praying for the Lord to send us a Children's Ministries Pastor and a Youth Pastor. Petra is currently hosting weekly youth Bible Studies and discipleship by Zoom, with the Petra Youth meeting once a month for fellowship.
I have small children, and they may be disruptive during church.
We love kids! As we are currently meeting in a public conference room, we do not have a formal "nursery" set up. However, you are welcome to bring your children inside to participate with us. If that is inconvenient or uncomfortable for you, we have people ready and available to help you with your children. Please do not hesitate to ask one of our ushers or a Guest Services staff member.
