Church, when you hear the word what comes to mind? We think about Gathering and Scattering. We gather on Sundays to wrestle with topics like relationships, dating, marriage, parenting, vocation, money and the many emotions that come with living. Every Sunday we create experiences intended to engage and challenge – no matter what you believe about God, Jesus and the Bible.
Sunday gathering times are 9.00 and 10.30am.
What can you expect at a Sunday experience? Every week we start with a handful of songs led by our excellent band of musicians. After about 15 minutes of music, one of our pastors teaches for 35 minutes and we almost always conclude with another song. Our gatherings last for 60 minutes. Great coffee and tea is free and available to everyone in attendance.
Narrate Kids provides age appropriate experiences for infants thru 5th graders. For more specific information (class breakdown, security, etc.) about Narrate Kids please click the Narrate Kids link at the top of the page.
Scattering is born of our calling and desire to matter, to narrate God's story to our community by the way we serve. Scattering is about the other 6 days. Learn more about Scattering by clicking the Scattering link at the top of the page.

THE OTHER 6 DAYS
We’re serious about being the kind of the church that exists for the benefit of its non-members… to the extent that the most ardent critic of Christianity would be bummed if we suddenly ceased to exist. We seek to make this happen both by validating the opportunity to serve people in our everyday, organic lives as well as by coming together once every month to serve on a large-scale, community wide level. We call these community serving events “Scattering” opportunities.
Dunk & Dine 2019 - September 8th
Mark your calendars for our upcoming scattering event! On Sunday, September 8th, we will be hosting our annual baptism event - Dunk & Dine. We have several people in our Narrate family who have made a life-changing decision to be baptized! Every year, we gather at Clark’s Bay (located on Hauser Lake, just past Lakeside on York Rd.) in celebration to recognize and support these individuals. We will dunk at 1.00pm, with dining to follow. Burgers and hot dogs, along with a myriad of toppings, will be provided. If you’d like, bring a side, drink, or dessert to share. Even if you don’t know anyone being baptized, feel free to come out!
Dunk & Dine is an excellent opportunity to meet new people and share in great food and conversation! The parking fee is on us - so you have no excuses! See you there!

This Sunday we're starting a brand new series titled "Is God Worth It?". We're going to ask questions like;
Sure, God can be a source of comfort in times of trouble, but what do you do with his anger?
What do you do with his religious requirements?
How do you make sense of his character?
I'm hoping it's the kind of series that helps those of you on the outside further think about the merits of following God. I'm also hoping it'll help those of you eager to get re-centered and back into routine think about why God is worth your while and what it means to stay faithful to God.
A place for kids to discover Jesus, make friends and serve others. In Narrate Kids (NK), we want kids to experience Jesus while having lots of fun! We have age appropriate activities for kids in a safe, caring, and engaging atmosphere. NK serves ages 6 weeks-5th grade and is held during Narrate's weekly Sunday Gatherings (9.0o and 10.30am) at Grandstreet Theatre, Grandstreet Studio and 326 Fuller. Our goal is to join with parents/guardians to help their children discover and navigate a relationship with God, make lasting friendships and experience serving others.

We believe…the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and without mistakes as originally written. It is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the only unfailing rule of faith and practice for the Christian life.
We believe…in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power.
We believe…in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on the cross, His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His imminent return.
We believe…man was created by and for God; that by man’s disobedience every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice.
We believe…the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial and substitutionary death and are, therefore, in right relationship with God.
We believe…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling all believers and thus enabling and empowering the life and ministry of the believer.
We define the win in three ways:
1. It’s a win when individuals put their faith in Jesus and express their faith through baptism.
2. It’s a win when we matter to Helena, especially when we matter to non-Christians in tangible ways.
3. It’s a win when individuals who are otherwise disinterested, disengaged, disillusioned or disconnected experience a Sunday gathering and then return the following weeks.
If you’re looking to plug in around Narrate, serving on Sunday morning is the way to do it! We have many options in many different areas and can accommodate most schedules. Our Gathering Teams include the Tech Team, the Band, Narrate Kids Team, and the Hospitality Team. If you would like to learn more about serving on one of these teams, please fill swing by the Scattering table in the lobby. There you can also learn more about serving on Wednesday nights with Middle School or Tuesday nights with High School.
We have a team of people who pray over the requests that are submitted at our Sunday Gatherings. If you would like to join this team and receive weekly emails with prayer requests, or if you have a prayer request you would like our team to pray over you can email email@example.com.
Giving is one of several ways to support the vision of Narrate Church and to help us make a tangible difference in the Helena community and beyond. If you’re using this page to give, Thank You! It’s a privilege telling God’s story with you.
