Whole Church Initiative

Exploring the challenges of 21st century church, a 10-member team made up of Evangelical, Shiloh and Grace United Methodist Churches, both members and pastors, will be participating in the Whole Church Initiative(WCI).  The Whole Church Initiative will help us explore how we can share God’s love in our community in the coming years.  This process is built on the idea that there are no easy fixes. Moving congregations to greater vitality will take dedicated and prayerful work from clergy and lay leadership working in partnership.  The WCI process was developed by a pastor from here in Billings, Montana, Rev. Jeremy Scott.  Pastor Jeremy serves as our Vital Congregations Developer for the Mountain Sky Area and is helping to plant new churches and re-inspire existing churches to follow God’s call for their ministry.

The WCI is built to expose local church teams to a variety of information about church in the 21st century, its opportunities, and its challenges. In addition to information sharing, the process will guide congregations in identifying and executing ministry experiments that will help us better live into God’s calling for our church. 
Over the next few months you will be hearing more from our team through newsletters, Facebook, email, and more. We will be commissioning the team in worship in the month of April.
We invite you to hold our team in prayer.  The EUMC team members include Nicole Berns, Bryan Ragsdale, Daen Scott & Bev Thorn.

Prayer Groups
Evangelical United Methodist Church has an active Prayer Ministry. This ministry helps keep the church centered on following God and the teachings of Jesus Christ. This ministry is also available to help all people in their spiritual journey. You don’t have to belong to EUMC to ask for prayer.
The chapel is open during normal business hours and Sunday morning from 8:30am to 12:30pm. The chapel is located just to the right when entering the side door by the parking lot. If you desire, call the church office at 406-259-1897 and arrange for the pastor or lay leader to meet and pray with you. A variety of publications are available to help you talk, and listen, to God.
Open prayer request time is held in the sanctuary during the first part of each Sunday service, which starts at 10:30am. During this time individuals and families may submit their prayer requests of concern and thanks giving. Quiet prayer time is held in the first few rows of the sanctuary before and after each Sunday service. A lay leader, identified with a name tag, will be available to pray with you, 
You can pray anywhere: in the car, in a school, in your home, in your garden, on a mountain top, and even under the water. You can do it in the rain and in the sunshine. Anyplace is a good place to pray. Anytime is a good time to pray. You can pray with friends, with enemies, and by yourself. We should offer prayer for guidance when we are faced with troubles, and we should offer prayers often.
