Seeing Jesus in You

January 09, 2021 | Church | Norma Trent

Roundup Seventh-day Adventist Church members involve themselves in their Montana community. They may be a small group, but they are mighty in the Lord’s work. They are not afraid to interact in their small town.

The Roundup Church recently helped the local Salvation Army service unit with its bell-ringing campaign. Each year the Salvation Army sets up the familiar red kettles at local grocery stores. Even with the pandemic, this year was no exception. This is the main fundraiser for the Salvation Army, besides a local campaign called the Musselshell Unity Drive.

The Salvation Army began in 1865 in London, England. Few realize that it is indeed a church, but the pastors hold titles of captain and lieutenant, similar to those in the military. Now it is a worldwide ministry.

Church members also help with the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), Meals on Wheels, the local food bank, Northern Treasures Thrift Store, Roundup Community Partners, Southeast Montana Tourism, the Roundup Memorial Hospital’s Auxiliary and the biannual highway cleanup. They have sponsored two vision clinics and hope to sponsor another in the near future. They even have a weekly radio show, “Let’s Talk About That,” on their own radio station, KQLJ at 105.5 FM, which is also broadcast on its own Facebook page. They are advertising to gain more viewers. 

There are ways to volunteer in every community. Don’t be afraid to get out and help. Sometimes the only Jesus people will see is you.
