Roundup Church Spreads Mission Throughout Community
Spring and summer months brought a flurry of active ministry opportunities to the Roundup (Mont.) Church.
On May 24, 2018, the church sponsored a Better Vision Better Hope free mobile vision clinic spearheaded by Kay Dickerson and Deanna Harris. The Better Vision Better Hope foundation provided free clinical services while the Roundup Church added 12 more volunteer church members. It was a joy to help people "see" their way to better sight and, in turn, a joy to the patients to receive expert eye care for no cost.
During June, 14 church volunteers took a small step in making Montana even more beautiful by cleaning a small portion of God’s creation on the road south of town. They eliminated many trash bags of refuse, including bottles, cans, papers and even the skeletal remains of a long-dead animal. A road sign announcing the church’s participation in the Adopt a Highway program is seen by anyone traveling to or from Roundup on the way to Billings or Lewistown. Just think of the people your church may be able to impact by volunteering just a few hours each year.
At the height of the summer’s activities, the church entered a float in the Roundup Independence Day Extravaganza parade. The 2018 parade theme was "Roundup — Miracle on the Musselshell" (a nearby river). So, with a little creative license, we decided our theme was "God's Miracle on the Musselshell" to highlight our Christian radio station, KQLJ, which broadcasts at 105.5 FM. This station features 3ABN (Three Angels Broadcasting Network) programming, as well as emergency broadcasts for the local area. Thanks to modern technology, we also stream the show on the radio's Facebook Live page.
The Roundup Church hopes these efforts toward practical community connections will bring more and more people into contact with our wonderful God and His love for them.
