Online Community Life

Your Online Holy Spirit Episcopal Church

Even though our buildings are closed temporarily, we’re committed to bringing all the warmth, beauty and God’s presence in Holy Spirit Episcopal Church directly to you!

We invite you to interact with us in new ways, and we hope you will find a measure of comfort and God’s grace in these challenging times.

In the coming days and weeks, we will add new online content, and we invite you to check this page often for more offerings. May God bless us all in our walk together!

Online Dialogue

Walk in Love Class

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry offers us "The Way of Love," a class hosted by the Diocese of Montana. Join Episcopalians from around the diocese to explore practices to nourish your relationship with Jesus and with one another as we are compelled to "walk in Love as Christ loved us" (Ephesians 5:2). The Zoom sessions, one hour each, begin at 7 pm on Tuesday, September 8, and run for 9 weeks.

Online Children's Ministry Resources

Children's Sermon

As we wait and learn how this virus will respond to schools opening, we will continue to offer online options for children and families. As long as the building remains closed, we will offer a mix of intergenerational worship experiences along with some children’s messages, designed just for kids, like we did last spring. At this point we anticipate offering intergenerational worship the first Sunday of the month and then offering children’s messages on the other Sundays. This pattern may change as we strive to be responsive to needs as they emerge.

Check out the weekly children's sermon on the church YouTube page here. Watch together with your family. Encourage your children to participate. Enjoy! Know that these messages were recorded with much love for all of you.

Youth Programs

As we continue to navigate COVID-19, we are making changes that we hope you will be excited about. While traditional programming is currently at a halt, we are looking at new ways to serve our Episcopal families:

Small Groups: We will continue our online meetings with small groups this fall. To learn more log into the camp’s webpage (www.campmarshallmontana.org) and follow the link to Youth Ministry Calendars. There you will find the dates and times for our small groups. Groups include Elementary, Middle/High School, Young Adult, and Parent Support Groups.

Looking ahead to our fall and winter: We will be hosting two events online, one this fall (the weekend of October 9th and 10th) and the other in early winter (January 16th). Currently we are also looking ahead to April 16-18 with the hope that we will have a vaccine by then and will be able to have an in-person youth conference.
