The news anchor calls it a gimmick. I call it brilliant. This church decided to build a gun range that’s useful and attractive for their community.
If the church is called to meet the needs of those it serves, Rocky Mount United Methodist Church is on the right track. Look how they transformed an overgrown gulch on the backside of their property. Where mosquitoes once buzzed, now bullets zing through the air.
Not only is this a great outreach, but Pastor Philip Guin indicates that a number of women in the church who owned firearms, now have a safe and accessible place to learn and grow more comfortable with their guns.
There’s been no word on if the congregation is accepting .22 LR ammo as tithe.
