REACH
THOSE WHO ARE FAR FROM GOD
WITH THE GOOD NEWS OF JESUS
 
 
 
 
 
LOCAL
 
Our reach within Helena and the surrounding area is primarily through the ministry of Small Groups. Each semester our groups select an outreach or service project to represent Christ in our community. Join a group and make a difference!
 
 
GLOBAL
 
We enjoy prayerfully and financially supporting over 50 missionaries globally, including many from Helena First and other Montana communities. In addition, we partner with various global organizations and individuals to spread the Gospel.
 
 
 
 
UPCOMING MISSIONS EXPERIENCE
 
 
BELIZE 2020!  
 
This March we’ll be sending a Team to Belize to work with kids! Although Belize is known for its beautiful beaches and Mayan ruins, the need there is great for people to experience the love of God. The majority of the country is poor and in great need of hope. 
 
 
 
 
 
ACCESS 360
 

SIMPLIFIED GIVING WITH AMPLIFIED IMPACT

 

With so many needs in our world, where to give can get confusing and overwhelming.

 

Access 360 simplifies the giving process.

 

We encourage you to follow the Biblical model to tithe (10%) first. After that, when you give to Access 360, your contributions will be proportionately divided among 19 projects and partnerships that were prayerfully selected by Helena First Leadership.

 

Each one is focused on either:

  • actively spreading the Gospel through Global Missions 
  • being the light of the world through Local Ministry 
  • investing in our future by developing Next-Gen Leaders.

 

Access 360 amplifies your giving impact!

 

By teaming together we can accomplish far more than any one of us can alone, and have more fun doing it!
 
 
2019 GOAL: $360,000
