Howdy Pardner,

Thanks to Karen Grindler, from the Cedar Creek Therapeutic Riding Center, for being with us at last Monday’s service to tell us about the good work of Cedar Creek and all the children and adults that have been dramatically helped by getting to ride and relate to the Center’s horses. Our Vacation Bible School Kids, led by Barb Spencer, welcomed Karen by singing the VBS theme song, “Saddle Ridge Ranch” with all those fun motions to the song. Then MaryAnn Larison and the children presented Karen the $455 check that our VBS raised for the riding center. All this was followed by our worship service and fellowship meal.  It was an awesome night! (The Monday Services starts at 7 PM.)

Our Sunday service was also well attended, with Steve Barker and Wayne Walker leading us with some excellent songs and then my message, “The 10 Commandments and What They Mean to Christians.”  That service was followed by our Monthly ‘First Sunday of the Month’ Potluck Dinner and a great time of meeting friends, conversation, and fellowship. (The Sunday Services start at 11 AM.) 

Horse riding in the Cowboy Church Arena is welcome before and after the services. Thanks to Ray Spencer for using his tractor to disk and grade the arena to get is ready for riding!

1.      A Big Thanks to Dorothy McMahan for doing the work of finding a good T-Shirt company, working out all the details, and  getting all of our new Cowboy Church T-Shirts ordered for us.  With this last order now going in, we have ordered over 150 Shirts.  If you did not get your order in, we will have some available for purchase in various sizes and colors for adults and children. All the shirts will be $10 each.

 

2.      Two up-coming Parades the Spencer’s Stagecoach and the Binney’s horses will participate in, to represent the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church, will be in Harrisburg September 9 (9:30 AM line-up), and in Hallsville September 30 (8:30 AM line-up). Other Cowboy Church riders, with their horses, and folks walking and giving out GttHCCC literature are welcome!

 

3.      Thanks as always to you, our regular attendees and members, for your faithful attendance and regular giving and tithing to your Cowboy Church.  And a special thanks to our hard working Treasurer, Donal Knipp, for the hours he spends every week getting the offerings counted and deposited and for making sure our bills are all paid and mailed off. He also makes our Monday night worship service Power Point projection slides for the announcements and songs and He welcomes everyone and shares the announcements at the beginning of the Monday night services. Thanks, Donal, for all you do!

 

4.      Linda Sharp continues to recruit church folks to be on a New Hospitality Committee, to help with the drinks and other Fellowship-Time needs for both Sundays and Mondays. A sign-up sheet is at the church.  Talk to Linda about the details.

 

5.      Louise Marble would like to start a Mid-week Ladies’ Study and Missions Group in the cowboy church.  If you are interested, talk to Louise or sign her sign-up sheet at the church. The first meeting to decide what the ladies want to do will be Wednesday, August 16, at 5:30 pm at the Cowboy Church building.

 

6.      “Let there be light!” I want to thank Phil McMahan again for all the hard work and expertise he has put in for the Cowboy Church in getting all our electrical wiring and lights installed in the Cowboy Church building.  The new string of ceiling lights along the east wall has really helped light up our chuck wagon, the fellowship food table, and added new light in the kid’s Fort apostle. Phil also put in a new front porch light and emergency lights in the building, plus an exit light over the inside of the front door. Not to mention, that all the east wall outlets are now hooked up and ready to use. Thanks, Phil, for the hours you put in and your great work!

 

7.       If you would be interested in presenting a 10 minute Horse Clinic in the Cowboy Church Arena on some equine-related subject this fall, just before our Sunday or Monday worship services, let me, Pastor Dale, know.  We will get you scheduled and invite the whole church family to attend. We know we have a great variety of horse expertise in our church family and we want to give you a chance to share your expertise for all to learn from.

 

8.       The “18th Annual Saddle-Up for St. Jude’s (Children’s Hospital) Trail Rided” will be Saturday, September 16th at David and Brenda Reed’s Farm and onto the Rudolph Bennitt Conservation Area near Higbee, MO.  Ride-out time for all riders is 10 AM. A Carry-In Dinner at 5 PM and Auction will follow the trail ride. The meat for the dinner is provided.  If you want to donate to this good cause, talk to Clark Dalton.

 

9.       We are planning our, “First Annual Fun Show” at the Cowboy Church on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in our Cowboy Church Arena.  MaryAnn Larison, Jacque Barker, and  Becky Ankelman  are the Point Riders (Organizers) for this event.  Plan now to participate or come watch these fun horse and rider contests.  There will be contests for every age and experience level.  Awards will be given!

 

10.  Volunteers to mow (with your own mowers) the Cowboy Church property are welcomed! Let me know if you would be willing to mow!  Last week I left Dave Binney off the list of people that have mowed this summer for us. Sorry about that Dave.  We appreciate all the people that have mowed the grounds for us through the summer.

 

11.  The next meeting of the Heartland Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen will be at 6:30 PM at the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church building on Thursday, August 24th at 6:30 PM.  Robert Phillips is the Trail Master and has the details.

 

12.  Finally, mark your calendars for our next, “Movie Night at the Cowboy Church!”  It will be Friday night, August 25th at 8 PM.  The movie we will see will be “Sully”, with Tom Hanks, in the story about the pilot, Sully Sullenberger, that landed the airline jet on the Hudson River in New York with none of the 155 lives aboard being lost. Great movie! The movie, popcorn and drinks are all free! Bring friends and family!

 

We will see you this Sunday and/or Monday at the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church!

 

God Bless and Happy Trails,

Pastor Dale and MaryAnn Larison c}:-{
