The highly anticipated Blood Covenant Conference starts tonight! Nearly 80 people signed up to attend. Life’s Journey Christian Fellowship in Colstrip, MT will be hosting Tim Anderson as he again teaches the Blood Covenant series.
The symbolism of blood and legal agreements called covenants are used throughout the Bible. God declares his unending faithfulness and love for people using the ideas of blood and covenant. This seminar teaches us about the basis of our relationship with God and therefore every other relationship in our life. This teaching will bless: your marriage, friendships, family relationships, interactions with neighbors….your whole life. See every relationship you have through the view of God’s relationship with you.
The Friday session will begin at 6:30 PM and run until 9:30 PM. The Saturday sessions will begin at 9 AM and finish at 9 PM that evening. There will be snacks provided for Friday evening and Saturday morning and then a full catered dinner Saturday evening. Childcare will be provided at the church.
Date: February 16-17 (Fri-Sat), starting Friday at 6:30 PM
Location: Life’s Journey Christian Fellowship, 1 Victory Ln, Colstrip, MT
Childcare: Will be provided *have your little kids bring a comfy blanket and a pillow if you plan to stay for the late sessions. Movies and snacks will be provided for the kids in the evening hours.
A lot goes on at Life’s Journey and it can be difficult to keep up. All of the Life’s Journey ministry teams work hard at keeping you up to date on events. Here’s some ways we let you know what’s happening.
This website is a good place to start. You’ll find basic information about LJCF and this is the place to listen to past sermons. You can even leave comments to posts that show up here. This site is also accessible by going to LifesJourneyMT.org
The Life’s Journey Facebook page is a great way to connect with LJCF. You can keep up to date on LJCF events and news through our page. When something is added to LifesJourneyMT.com, it will automatically show up on this Facebook feed. You can even send FB messages to @lifesjourneymt to ask for updates on anything happening at LJCF.
We use a few private/closed groups on Facebook to help pass information to regular attendees at LJCF. Although these groups share public information (that shows up on the above channels) they are also a place for more personal prayer requests and other needs or news that is better not to be shared across all of Facebook.
—> LJCF Needs and Updates: the private group for all regular attendees at LJCF. To join this group, you must be approved by the group administrators. If you’re a member of this group, remember that the posts are not public. If you need to post public information on FB, remember to post it on the public page. Likewise, if you have prayer requests containing personal information about you or someone else, please post it on this private group.
—> LJCF Nursery Schedule: a private group for team members who work with the Sunday nursery ministry
The good old method of posting event information on a board. When you attend LJCF on Sunday mornings or through out the week for various group meetings, you’ll see bulletin boards upstairs in the main meeting room or information in the visitor center.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming “Benefit for Sherry Benner” happening on Thursday, February 22! Join the Colstrip community at the Colstrip High School for a free-will donation Taco Bar, a Silent auction and Live auction. The goal of the event is to raise money to help pay for the medical bills that came from Pastor Rod Benner’s year long battle with heart failure and his recent passing. We want to take away as much of the financial burden as possible from his wonderful wife, Sherry Benner.
This event has been in the works for months and although LJCF and the Colstrip community are still mourning the loss of Rod, this event will be a fun and joyful way to celebrate Rod’s influence on the community and to honor his lovely bride. Sherry has dedicated her whole adult life to Christian ministry, serving along side Rod in various pastoral positions, and she has tirelessly worked to bless the LJCF kids ministry and all of the people at LJCF since she came to Colstrip years ago.
Bring your love and open your wallets so that we can all bless this special lady. If you are unable to attend, consider sending a financial donation to LJCF and we’ll make sure Sherry gets it.
When: Thursday, February 22 @ 5:00 PM
Where: Colstrip High School
Cost: Free admission and a generous heart
- free-will donation Taco Bar starting at 5 PM
- Silent auction begins at 5 PM
- Live auction begins at 6:30 PM

This Saturday, Feb 10th at 10 AM, the Colstrip Junior Bible Quiz team (JBQ) will be holding a competition at the First Baptist Church in Colstrip.
JBQ is a trivia style game in which each participant is expected to know over 500 questions and answers about the Bible and Christian belief. The teams are made up of kids in grades 1-6 grade. A “quiz master” asks the questions and two teams of four contestants are given a few seconds to buzz in (using a hand buzzer) and answer the question. Once buzzed in, the contestant has 30 seconds to provide a full answer. The answers vary from 2-3 word answers to multi-word Bible verses that must be recited word-for-word.
Various local churches in Montana sponsor Junior Bible Quiz teams. During the Winter and Spring, all of the Montana teams meet at select church buildings across Montana to compete. A state-wide meet was scheduled for this weekend, but due to severe winter weather the meet was cancelled.
Instead, the Colstrip JBQ team will compete against each other for a fun filled morning of learning God’s word.
Please come watch them and cheer them on as the learn God’s Word.
To learn more about JBQ, you can visit the official JBQ site.
JBQ is a children’s ministry of The General Council of the Assemblies of God.
