Soldier Outreach

The members of Roby Christian Church regularly collect items for our military personnel serving overseas. Once a month, members meet at the church to pack the boxes and prepare them for shipping. Robyn Justice heads up this Military Outreach program. If you know of a soldier who would appreciate a box from our church, please email Robyn at with the soldier’s name and military address.
We’ve received responses from some of the soldiers, and the boxes are greatly appreciated and treasured. The soldiers are far from home and in a hostile environment. These expressions of support and love from back home mean a lot to them.
Many members buy a few items at a time when they’re out shopping. Others prefer going to warehouse clubs such as Sam’s or Costco to buy items in bulk. These are brought to the church and placed on a table in the Crusaders classroom.
Some of our memebers don't always find the time for shopping, so they donate money so that others who have the time can purchase items. We appreciate any form of help you want to give to this ministry, and we invite you to join us. If interested please contact Robyn after any church service, by phone (417) 458-4900 or use the email above.
