Pioneer Church History - Bozeman
The Gallatin Valley is steeped in history. Have you ever wondered about church history, and our pioneer forefathers who originally evangelized this beautiful state we call home? The following is an excerpt from an internet link we ran across in researching some history. To see more, go to: ncbible.org/nwh/montana.html#bozeman
PIONEER HISTORY/Bozeman, MT Churches of Christ & Christian Churches in the Pacific Northwest by Charles Dailey
The town of Bozeman was platted in 1864. The Bozeman Trail was the northern spur of the Oregon Trail that began in Wyoming and ended at Virginia City, Montana. John Bozeman began to lead new settlers over this trail that same year.
About 24 years later, the Lord brought his own trail blazer to this frontier town. Martin Lyman Streator was preaching at the Helena Christian Church at the time and was asked to assist in forming a new congregation. A group of disciples, largely from Missouri and Kentucky, formed a church with a charter membership of 34.They layed plans to construct a frame building, but a generous gift from the Payne family enabled the planners to use brick. We believe this photograph is of the original building, although it was taken about 1920.
The building was located at the southeast corner of West Babcock and Grand Avenue South.The congregation has remodeled the building since it was first built, but the original structure can still be seen in the present one.The first resident minister was Wiley Mountjoy, beginning in 1889. Mr. Mountjoy stayed about one year, but before the church was two years old, it had 101 members.
Heartsongs... Our hearts sing thanks!
In any ministry, there are unsung heroes...those who work behind the scenes...those who give of their time, their talents, their businesses... those who come alongside us and help us do what we do. We are blessed to have SO MANY of those individuals, businesses, churches, groups, & organizations in the Gallatin Valley who believe in us, and support local Christian radio. Be it donuts, pizza, hand-made pottery mugs, internet service, engineering, or the many other facets that enter into our ministry here at 99.1 The One, we simply cannot thank you adequately, or often enough.
Our hearts sing thanks to you!
We were blessed to have Pastor Rusty Strickler from Belgrade Community Church with us for a time of discussion & prayer. We hope you caught our Ministry Moment interview with Pastor Rusty. LOTS of exciting things going on in our Gallatin Valley Chuches!
*Every Wednesday morning, 99.1 hosts a pastor(s) from the Gallatin Valley for a time of prayer & discussion...and delicious treats from New Day Bakery.
