About Us

CLC is a community of people who are on a journey of transformation. Our church doors are wide open to people of all backgrounds.  People young and old, single and families, spiritual seekers who are just starting to ask questions about God, and committed Christians have all found CLC is their place to believe and belong. 

We invite you to join the journey!

Vision & Values

Know God

To know God is awesome! He has good news, daily, to share with us. We know God more by engaging in worship, scripture, and prayer. Individually, and within a community of other believers!

Discover Purpose

We believe that God has something good in store for everyone. We want to help everyone discover and enter into a life full of joy and purpose, trusting the God that makes our purpose complete (Psalm 57:2).

Find Freedom

With so many things around us promising hope and fulfillment, we believe that true freedom is found in Christ. We find ultimate freedom and joy as we serve Jesus and allow His Word to speak and direct our lives.

Make a Difference

We believe that God uses His people to bring His will “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10). We’re here to tell others about Jesus and show the incalculable worth of our God to those around us. We can make a difference in our families, workplaces, and communities by letting the power of God work in and through us.

Sunday Mornings

Christian Life Center draws people from just about every religious background.  As our guest, we want you to remain as anonymous as you want to be. We hope that you will feel at home and find a loving community here at CLC! We have two lively Sunday morning services with contemporary worship and a Biblical message each week.

When are your Sunday morning services?

We have two services, at 9 am and 10:30 am. Each service is about 80 minutes long.

Where is your church?

3801 S Russell St, Missoula MT

Do you have kids programs?

Yes, we have a nursery available and kid’s programs during both of our Sunday morning services! Children ages 0-3 will have a wonderful time in our nursery located directly beside the front foyer. Preschool-aged children will have so much fun in our preschool wing, next to the auditorium, and kindergarten through fifth graders will experience an exciting and encouraging service in our Kids wing towards the back of the building!

How do I get connected at CLC?

The easiest way to get connected is to fill out a connect card! If you’re new, we have a free gift for you in our Welcome Center. Or, stop at our Uplifted coffeeshop and tell them it’s you’re first time here – we’ll treat you to a free coffee!

Another great way to get connected is to get involved! Come to prayer or GrowU, or join a serve team. You’ll connect with many people as you pray, learn, and serve at CLC together!

What should I wear?

Wear what you feel comfortable in! We don’t have a dress code or expectation of what “Sunday morning clothes” should be. Casual or dressy, we’re just glad you came!

Wednesday Nights

For Kids + Youth

Kids and Youth programs happen Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm! Kids K-5th meet in the chapel, and junior high and high school students meet in the youth room. Our nursery is also open for the younger kiddos!

For Adults

We have a prayer meeting every week, and Grow U classes every fall and spring (check those out here!)

Where should I go once I get there?

For kids and youth programs, the Chapel entrance at the back of CLC’s building is the closest. If you hear music and kids, you’re at the right place!

You can also enter through the front – prayer meeting is in the sanctuary, and all the current GrowU classes will be posted in the foyer!
