September 20 Pastor’s Corner

This Sunday Chaplain Chris Haughee is joining us in worship at 11:00 AM to share a Children’s sermon. Chris is one of the many committed people that are a part of Intermountain. Intermountain is an organization that has long been associated with Methodism in Montana and our commitment to share to gospel in the world through putting our belief in God’s love into action.

For the past 150 years, St. Paul’s and Methodists in Helena have lived this out in our practice. To celebrate this historical achievement we chose not to just sit and cheer, but to stand and make a difference. We want to Do Good… for Good and to continue to share the love of God.

Intermountain has been a part of our history from our very early days and so this fall we are teaming up with them to learn about ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences). The facility we founded, as the Deaconess Home for Children has turned into an organization that helps children with severe emotional and mental health needs through holistic, integrated services and a relationship-based approach. The education wing of Intermountain, Child Wise has begun a campaign to educate the community on ACEs to help us look at some big challenges our children and we are facing.

Chaplain Haughee will be working with area faith communities to find a way for faith communities to respond to ACEs together.

Enthusiastic Peace for Good,

Pastor Tyler
