Weekly Cowboy Church Round-Up

Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter
Howdy Pardners,
God continues to bless the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church Family.  Almost 100 people attended our 11 AM and Monday 7 PM services this past week. The only thing that would make it better would be to see everyone that receives this newsletter there with your family and friends! Come join us as we worship our Great God and Savior, God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

We are having another construction Work Day at the Cowboy Church this Saturday, August 11th starting about 9:30 AM. If you can help, we will be putting up the floor/ceiling joists on the new building addition’s bathrooms. If you have a chargeable or impact drill, bring it.

Thanks to Wayne Walker, David, Kristi, Shelby and Hunter Stephens and Ray and Barb Spencer for helping to bring the donated covered wagon to the cowboy church this past Monday evening. (I helped too!)  The covered wagon looks great in our worship building!  Thanks again to Gary Evans of Columbia, MO for donating it (and 30 nice stackable chairs) to the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church.
We also got our gutters put up this week on the building and they look great!  A reminder again, please do not park next to the building on the east side of the church building.  Our down spout extensions are along that side of the building.  We plan to eventually have some kind of permanent fencing along there to protect the downspout extensions and the gravel grade along that side.

Thanks to those who have mowed the grass this year at the Cowboy Church.  Ray Spencer, Wayne and Cathy Walker, Dave Binney and I have all taken our mowers over to mow this season. It takes about three to four hours to mow the property.  Anyone else that would like to mow, let me know and we can schedule you in. I mowed it Wednesday and cut the weeds around the arena fence.  If anyone has a weed eater and would like to bring it over and weed eat the perimeter fence,  that would be welcome.  Robert Phillips is going to meet with MODot to see if he can do some grading so that some of the areas on our property that hold water will drain better toward the highway ditches. There were a few of those areas I could not mow yesterday because they were too soggy. It will be good to see those areas drain better.
Obstacle Course Training Sunday afternoon, August 12th – at Donna Fox’s horse arena at her home on County Road 2970 in Randolph County (First gravel road on the left just west of the Cowboy Church off Hwy B).  Please call Donna at 573-489-3992 if you are planning to attend so she will know who is interested.
