  • Are You a Friend of Jesus?

    Stephen Kimball|Feb 15, 2024

    Recently, I watched the movie: Same Kind of Different as Me. A film about friendship…true friendship. The movie documents the true story of an unlikely friendship formed between Ron, a wealthy art dealer and Denver, a volatile homeless man. It tells how God has worked through that friendship, to not only change the hearts of the two men and the community in which they lived, but to influence countless lives for the cause of Christ through their inspiring story. At one point in the movie, the fate of the relationship hangs in the balance as D...

  • The Best Emergency Service in the Universe Part 2

    Dave Carroll|Feb 1, 2024

    I want to share with you some more great numbers to call when life throws you a curve. As I mentioned last time, to go out unprepared in severe winter weather, or life, is to invite disaster. The journey we call life and death requires a person to have things in order, if it is to be satisfying and successful. The Bible has some emergency numbers that are the best resource to turn to when you encounter difficulties on your journey. Here are several more to add to your phone book of life. Over the years I have worked with, ministered to and befr...

  • The Measure of a Man

    Stephen Kimball|Jan 25, 2024

    It’s easy to believe that success or popularity equals “manhood”. But do not be deceived! The God who created you and knows you intimately, looks beneath the surface into the recesses of the heart, and what really matters is what he sees in there. Lose that perspective and begin to live your life with the ideals of the world, guided by your own selfish desires, and fall short of what God has planned for your life. On the other hand, live life with an undying deep desire to understand the heart of God and to walk in the wisdom of His Word and y...

  • Milk Bone Religion

    Stephen Kimball|Jan 25, 2024

    Joe attends church dutifully, even volunteering as an usher once in a while. Joe’s wife, Christy, has been praying faithfully for her husband since she became a believer a couple years ago. They have two children together – six year old Collin and his three year old brother, “Little Joey”. Joe believes in God and agrees with his wife that going to church is something that they should do in order to set a good example for the kids. Besides, they have a lot of fun activities for the kids in “Children’s Church” and they even have a free kid’s ca...

  • The Best Emergency Service in the Universe

    Dave Carroll|Jan 18, 2024

    Last weekend was a real Montana winter event, wasn’t it? It is amazing to be bundled up and outside when the temperatures are 30 below and the wind is blowing. But, when I do go out in that cold, I am equipped for it. To go out unprepared is to invite disaster. Driving in those conditions will reveal what systems in your car need attention. Extremely cold (and hot days) will let you know if all systems in your car are functioning properly. Good maintenance will ensure you arrive at your destination. If you break down then it’s a call to a fri...

  • Forgiveness Is The Medication For Your Soul

    Lareina Morgan|Jan 18, 2024

    Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly father will also forgive you. What do you do to cure yourself when you are physically ill? When you are sick, you will be told by your doctor to take your medication so that you can feel better. What if you don’t feel better? You need to keep taking your medication until you do feel better...Forgiveness cleanses the palate of your soul, helps to heal the deepest emotions, and it activates the Holy Spirit to redeem you from your misery if you allow Him to h...

  • Stay Alert in 2024!

    Dave Carroll|Jan 4, 2024

    The following is an article I wrote for the January 8, 2015, paper. Although the names of some politicians may have changed, the deficit number and pork spending has sky-rocketed, and my main points are still valid I think. I hope that the people of this country will wake up and step up to the plate at the voting booth, and many will run for office. We are being led to slaughter by these lifetime politicians. A new year is upon us, and I hope that for you and your family it will be a good year. I hope you will grow closer together. I hope your...

  • Sanctification

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Dec 28, 2023

    Decades ago I heard this quip from a fellow Christian: "The nature you nurture is the one that will grow." Two verses that paraphrase this quote are Rom. 8:13 "for if you are living in accord with the flesh, you are going to die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live." And Col. 3:5, "Therefore, treat the parts of your earthly body as dead to sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amount to idolatry." Becoming God's child began when I repented from my sins and trusted...

  • What Child Is This?

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Dec 21, 2023

    The Prophet Isaiah answers the question raised by the favorite Christmas Carol, “What Child is This?” He is “Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,” (Isaiah 9.6). Each name unlocks aspects of our Messiah’s character. Wonderful means astonishing or extraordinary and describes the accomplishment of a difficult act or feat. Counselor is legal term describing an advisor in the king’s court or a planner. Some scholars combine these two words which literally mean a wonder of a counselor. Mighty God is a statement o...

  • "Rome"-ing about at Christmastime

    Kim Boettger, The Cascade Courier|Dec 21, 2023

    I must admit, I have always had a small case of wanderlust. I love to see new places, meet new people, and experience new things. Recently, I was blessed to travel with two of my adult kids to Italy. If you know me, I am certain you have grown weary of hearing about our trip. It truly was the trip of a lifetime. We were in Rome, Italy for ten days. We did a tremendous amount of touring the city and the churches in those ten days. We didn't even come close to exhausting all that Rome had to...

  • Pride

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Dec 14, 2023

    Philippians 2:7 says that Jesus made himself of no reputation. He emptied himself of self. As some theologians explain it, Jesus voluntarily and temporarily laid aside some of his rights and privileges as God the Son when he came to Earth. Think about this for a moment. Some self-proclaimed Christians tell the world “look at me” when they ought to be saying “look to Jesus.” This grows even more tragic. The victories God gives are crowns to be thrown at the feet of Jesus. But we would deign wear them on our own heads? That is not only tragic,...

  • Marriage, Divorce & Renewal, Part IV

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Nov 23, 2023

    Reflecting on my teen years, I recalled a spiritual decision I had made to offer my life to God in Christian vocation. I had never forgotten that. In fact, I was lately thinking on that decision and was considering a career in Christian counseling if you can believe that. I decided to go to college in Dallas. But not just any college — Bible college. In August of 1986, I left my parents driveway headed for Dallas. I heard that voice again inside my head: “If you go to that college, you will remarry your wife.” Now, isn’t that interes...

  • First Baptist Church of Cascade's Operation Christmas Child 2023

    Kim Boettger, First Baptist Church of Cascade|Nov 23, 2023

    The First Baptist Church of Cascade spent last Wednesday learning about giving and doing for others during the annual Operation Christmas Child box packing party. This is the 12th year that the church acted as a drop off location and relay center for other churches to bring their boxes. If you, your organization, or your church would be interested in packing show boxes for next year, feel free to reach out to Kim Boettger (406)468-4093....

  • Thank You from Ulm Church

    Sandy Harshaw, Ulm Contributor|Nov 23, 2023

    The Ulm Church wanted to thank everyone who donated shoe boxes or supplies to Operation Christmas Child. We ended up with 57 boxes. The Truth Trackers youth group helped put together 30 some of them and they had a blast while doing it. They give up their game time to do this project. We are always sure to put in the essentials of school supplies and hygiene items. They then can go crazy with the other items like toys, water bottles, socks, sunglasses, tools, sewing kits, more toys, etc. They...

  • It's Not Too Late For Some Social Change

    Dave Carroll|Nov 16, 2023

    This fall we have had some wonderful weather in my opinion. I guess we could have had a bit more snow, it definitely helps for hunting. But these warmer days have been quite enjoyable. Not having to drive in icy and wintery conditions is good. But we know the time is coming when winter will settle in and we will be shoveling, plowing and slipping on the ice! Winter is inevitable. It will come and we will survive. We really are guaranteed to have it due to where we live. It is a result of our decision to live in western Montana. In getting...

  • Marriage, Divorce & Renewal, Part III

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Nov 16, 2023

    Unable to find a remedy, I let go of the steering wheel — both hands. I grabbed the door handle with my left hand and the safety belt clasp with my right. I had every intent of jumping. A nanosecond of doubt flashed a vision of me slipping when I jumped and the truck rolling over me. As it turns out, that’s exactly what would have happened. I better make the jump a good one. Literally, as muscles flexed to execute my escape, miraculously the truck turned away from the edge of disaster and back toward the road. I grabbed the wheel with both han...

  • Wheels for the World

    Ann Henry|Nov 16, 2023

    Wheels for the World was started by a young lady, Johnny Eareckson Taylor, who has been in a wheelchair since childhood. Bob Radcliff became involved in the ministry about 10 years ago, when he was a youngster at 74. Now at 84 he's passing the baton to anyone that would be interested in this ministry. Bob has been all over MT and Idaho packing up donated wheelchairs. Some of the donors are nursing homes, hospitals, and medical supply warehouses. Bob picks up the wheelchairs and brings them back...

  • Marriage, Divorce & Renewal Part 2

    Norm Miller, Montana Christian College|Nov 9, 2023

    When I got back to our apartment two weeks later, Cynthia was gone. Her father and a friend of his retrieved Cynthia, our son, and our daughter to-be. I returned to a mostly empty apartment. Once again, what I thought would bring a sense of freedom was just the ball-and-chain of selfishness renewed. I felt it in my soul; I had made a significant turn. My sense of self-sufficiency in all things reared its fickle head to tell any other remnant of rightness that it was not welcome. And I made sure of that by later signing divorce papers. The work...
