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.



Helena Ales For Trails - May 19th 2017

Helena Ales for Trails is about contributing to the Helena community by raising funds for the Helena trail system.  This year’s event will benefit the Peaks to Creek Initiative, proposed by the Prickly Pear Land Trust. This trail will connect Spring Meadow Lake State Park and the Centennial Trail to Tenmile Creek, Ft. Harrison, and the VA Hospital. This trail will serve as a recreational opportunity for kids and families in the surrounding neighborhoods, provide a safe commuter route for nearly 1500 employees at the Fort and VA, and allow water access for veterans and individuals with disabilities at the neighboring facilities. Last year, Ales for Trails raised over $20,000 to benefit Centennial Trail. 

The event itself is led by a consortium of community leaders from a variety of sectors - called the Ales Blender.  We’re proud to partner with local businesses, city and county government, and private citizens to host Helena Ales for Trails.  The 7th Annual Helena Ales for Trails is scheduled for Friday, May 19th from 3pm to 9pm. The event will be held in downtown Helena at Pioneer Park, which is located at 120 South Last Chance Gulch.
