SUFFERING: Focusing on the Eternal in the Midst of Temporal Struggles
"Pain is the gift no one wants, everybody gets, and few embrace." Suffering is a common theme in the lives of those in your community and in your church. It is inescapable. So, when it comes, what will we do with it? How will we change? Pain and suffering shakes many people to the core and they are looking for answers. Join us as we dive into this topic by analyzing and applying Psalm 73 to suffering.

Reach Montana Missions Offering
Each September we attempt to raise awareness of our local mission field through our Reach Montana Missions Offering emphasis. It is a missions offering unlike any other we receive because it is solely funded through the gifts from our MTSBC churches. Additionally, every dollar given stays in Montana and is used for specific ministries in our state. This year the offering will be used to help strengthen our churches, reach the lost, meet human needs like hunger and literacy missions, and provide emergency financial assistance for our pastors.
Although emphasized in September, the offering is received year-round. Our 2022 Reach Montana Missions Offering goal is $80,000.
PrayMT ~ All-State Online Prayer Gathering
Wednesday, August 31
6:30 pm MDT
This past spring the 406 Day of Prayer and Fasting was a BIG SUCCESS!
In April, approximately 75 people representing 19 different churches united in heartfelt, passionate prayer on the date represented by our area code, April 6 (4/06). Online there were churches gathered in homes, and fellowship halls. There were families gathered in living rooms. There were pastors and wives, side by side. Most people who participated were from our state, and a few gathered online from states like Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Together, we cried out to God for our state! Many others who could not make the online gathering, informed me that they would also be praying with all of us on that day.
I’m overwhelmed at the prospect of what God might do if our MTSBC family continues seeking God and crying out to him on behalf of lostness in our state. It’s time to do it again! Will you join us for another state-wide prayer gathering?
Please feel free to copy the link and send it to friends, family, church members, and mission partners to join in our time of prayer across Montana for Montana.
