GATHERING & SCATTERING

CURRENT SERIES : COMPARISON TRAP

SUNDAYS

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.

We're honored to gather at the Grandstreet Theatre in downtown Helena (325 N. Park Ave).  You can also learn more about The Grandstreet Theatre Company by visiting their website grandstreettheatre.com.

Sunday gathering times are at 8.30am, 10am & 11.30am. 

What should 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.

SCATTERING

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.

UPCOMING SCATTERING EVENTS

Special Olympics - Saturday, November 11th

Scattering is all about getting out into the community and serving and loving people in Helena. We do this through organized scattering projects once a month. You won’t want to miss our next scattering  event on Saturday, November 11th, from 9am - 1pm. We will be volunteering with the Special Olympics Basketball Tournament at CR Anderson Middle School. This opportunity includes walking athletes through the Individual Skills portion of the competition, where athletes compete in passing, shooting, and dribbling skills. Last year, we had a blast and are excited to be a part of the basketball tournament again this year!

Please note - In addition to the Special Olympics, we will also be splitting and distributing firewood to families in need. Wood splitting is a great, tangible way to give back to the community in these colder months!

If you would like to be involved with serving, please email Hannah at hannah@narratechurch.org.

CURRENT SERIES : COMPARISON TRAP

Comparison is a tricky thing.  On the one hand, comparison is how we learn and get better.  It can lead to better outcomes in relationships, work and anything else where we’re seeking growth.
But comparison can also wreak havoc!  Suddenly we’re not being ourselves.  Suddenly we’re focused on what we don’t have, rather than how we can grow and improve.  Suddenly we’re comparing ourselves to people we’d be better off not emulating.
So how do we know when we’re in a comparison trap?  What’s the difference between healthy and toxic comparision? 
Join us as we start a conversation about comparison the next few weeks at Narrate.

ABOUT NARRATE

OUR BELIEFS

  • 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.

OUR WINS

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.

GET INVOLVED

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 Host Team. If you would like to learn more about serving on one of these teams, please fill out an info card or swing by the Scattering Board in the lobby. There you can also learn more about serving on Wednesday nights with Sketch (Middle School) or Tuesday nights with Non-Fiction (High School).

PRAYER TEAM

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 prayer@narratechurch.org.

GIVING

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.
