Ronan Opens New Glacier View Church

June 05, 2018 | Billee Collins

Having outgrown our former church and with much planning, hard work and fundraising, we were excited to welcome about 160 members and guests to the grand opening of the new Glacier View Church in Ronan, Mont., on March 24, 2018. This beautiful facility, which is an extension of the Glacier View School, will now allow us to better serve our community.

Phillip Newhart, Glacier View Church pastor, gave a brief history of the Ronan Church, which was dedicated in 1967 and has served Lake County for 50 years.

Earlene Lovinger (1915–2004) received a special tribute as her generous gift to the church was a substantial help in the building of the new church.

Retired pastor Bill Smith and Montana Conference vice president Matthew Kirk gave the prayers of dedication. Kirk was also the speaker for the Sabbath sermon.

Following the church service, a lunch was served to those who attended. It was a high Sabbath for all.
