Weekly Cowboy Church Round-Up

Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter

Howdy Folks,

We had a great night last Monday night at the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church as the excellent Gospel Band, “The Second Time Around” with Ron Ray, Stan Freeman, Alan Winn and Jeremy Winn, led our worship music that night. Over 80 people attended the service to enjoy the great music and to hear a message from God’s Word concerning sharing God’s message of salvation with others with love and respect. After the worship service, a Men’s Chili Cook-Off fed the large crowd with 8 crock pots of tasty chili. Thanks to all who participated in this great night at the cowboy church!

Here is the:

2.      The Cowboy Christmas for Kids is a Moberly, MO event on Sunday, Nov 26th. The trail ride through Moberly starts at noon and goes from Hwy M and Morley St. to Rothwell Park.  We plan to have the Spencers’ stagecoach and the Binneys’ Percheron horses pulling it in this parade.  Anyone wanting to ride their horse with the stage is welcome to join in. (Since it will start at noon, MaryAnn and I hope to go up to see the parade after our Sunday church service, which usually ends at noon. We welcome others at the service to go up and see the parade too. Maybe the preacher can shorten the message to get us out a little early that Sunday.)


3.      First Sunday of the Month Pot Luck Dinner after the 11 AM morning service – Dec 5th.


4.      The Cowboy Church Arts and Crafts Show on Sunday morning, Dec, 3rd and Monday, Dec 4th, at our evening service, will be a chance for our church members and attendees (open to in-house craftsmen/women only) who make craft items, to show their talents and make their handmade items available to church members for possible Christmas Gifts. So if you are an artist or craftsman, get to work and make some of your items for this showing on the 3rd and/or 4th


5.      Our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service will be at 6:30 and include some Christmas music, a Christmas message from God’s Word, and the lighting of our candles. A Fellowship Time with desserts and finger foods will follow the service.


6.      We may also be putting together a Cowboy Version of a Living Nativity at the Cowboy Church this Year.  This is in the planning stages right now by our Wranglers.  Let us know if you want to help!


7.      Finally, along with all the other things we discussed at the Wrangler Meeting, we also discussed a possible addition to our church building, Steve Barker had some preliminary building costs related to the different possibilities and said he would try to work-up some more detailed figures for us in this next month. If we build on the needed kitchen, fellowship hall, bathrooms and septic system, and perhaps even a storm-sheltered partial basement, the work could possibly begin as early as sometime next year.  The Wranglers were encouraged by the discussion and know that much prayer and planning needs to happen before we take this next big leap of faith.


In closing, you might be interested in knowing how many families receive the “Round-Up” email newsletter every week, along with you and your family.  We currently have 367 email addresses that the newsletter goes out to every week.  That likely represent over 500 people getting the information about what the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church is up to each week.  That is cool!  If you are receiving the “Round-Up” and haven’t been to the cowboy church in a while, we welcome you and your family to join us again soon. Every one of you are special to God and special to our church family as well! So, saddle-up and come on down this Sunday or Monday to worship with us, the Good Lord Jesus and our Heavenly Father.

(By-the-way, our church website has received, as of today, 102,401 hits on the homepage since we began it in 2011, and 364,414 hits on all of the pages on our entire website. People are curious about, and interested in, the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church. Praise the Lord for His rich blessings!)
