Weekly Cowboy Church Round-Up

Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter

Howdy Gang,

Happy Mother’s Day to all our wonderful Moms and Cowgirls out there! And Happy 7th Anniversary to the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church! We have a lot to celebrate this Sunday at 11 am and Monday at 7 pm. Come out and help us celebrate these special occasions!

The THE COWBOY CHURCH SPRING TRAIL RIDE AND PICNIC is this Saturday, May 12th, at the Rudolph Bennitt Conservation Area beginning at the Slab Campground at 10 am. (Details below in the Calendar.)

  1. The construction on our new cowboy church building addition began this week, and as of Thursday evening, all the supporting poles are up and the concrete footings have been poured. The next thing will be stubbing the plumbing in. Robert Philips and Herb Huck will be using their plumbing expertise to lead that work, which we hope to have done by next Wednesday when our builder will be back to begin to pour the concrete floor. We will be looking for helpers for Robert and Herb as they do the plumbing, so if you can help, let me know. Then we will let you know for sure when they will be working.
  2. The Cowboy Church Annual Peep Shoot was a great success again this past Saturday. Thanks to Ray and Barb Spencer for organizing and planning this annual fun event.
  3. We will have an Organizational Planning Meeting for our July 16 - 20 Vacation Bible School this Monday, May 14th at 6 pm at the Cowboy Church. Marcie Johnson and MaryAnn Larison are the Co-Directors this year. We will have the Baptist Association Youth Team helping us again this year. If you plan to help with VBS this year, please try to come to this meeting!
  4. Horse Blessing – June 3, 11:00am during our 11:00am worship service. Beth Davis and Sandy Bemboom are the Point Riders for this event. Signup sheets are available at church.
  5. Obstacle Practice – June 3, 1:30pm – 3:30pm after the Horse Blessing Service and Potluck dinner. Obstacles will be set up for an opportunity to learn some of the basic skills needed as building blocks for successful completion of an obstacle.
  6. Living Proof Live with Beth Moore – Fri, July 13 and Sat July 14 – Beth Moore will be speaking at Mizzou Arena in Columbia, MO. This is a great opportunity to see Beth Moore in person. Those ladies interested in attending may go online to purchase tickets. Ladies could meet at the venue or carpool to share the event together.
