Howdy Pardners,

Well good morning to you on yet another beautiful sunny day. So, the winter weather I mentioned last week decided to make an appearance, briefly at least. Still, Sunday looks to be a beautiful warm up and we look forward to seeing you at church.

In I Peter 5:6-7 we find these words " Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

In a universe so incomparably vast and so marvelously diverse, we can be paralyzed by our insignificance and impotence in the face of such staggering enormity. But in moments of simple faith, we can be calmed by our reverence and dependence on the Creator and Sustainer of such wonders and find great comfort that our lives are in his hands.

Upcoming Events:

We will be having both a Men's and Ladies Bible Studies starting soon, and Wayne and Holly would like everyone interested to meet with them after church tomorrow.

Plans for the upcoming Sunday School programs are coming along. We still could use a few more individuals to help lead some groups. We have set a goal to begin in March, which will be here before long. Please take time to pray about becoming a leader and see what the Lord leads you to do. God gives all of His people gifts to share. Please speak to Daffany with any questions you may have.

On Saturday March 9th the Crossroads Cowboy Church will be hosting a Mounted Shooting Clinic. In case of rain, it will be held here at the Christ Riders Arena. If you've been intrigued by the action and adventure of Cowboy Mounted Shooting, this event is being presented as an introduction to the sport. The clinic is full for participants, but anyone wanting to come and watch and learn is welcome.

We will be having a Coggins and Horse Vaccination Shot Clinic here at the church on March 16th. In order to attend most horse events, they will require a negative Coggins test. So, if you plan to participate in group events here's a great opportunity to get that done. We'll also have some obstacles and things set up in the arena for people to explore and enjoy with their horses that day.

We're having a Sewing Workshop March 17th starting after church. Please bring your lunch for a time of fellowship and then on to sewing. If you're interested, please check with Kathy for more information. 

Calling all youth! Disciple Now is an all-day event for the youth of Crossroads Baptist Association. It's being hosted by Hallsville Baptist Church this year on March 23rd. Cost to attend is $25 and includes lunch, supper, and all activities. They will be taking part in a mission work project at Coyote Hill Ministries. Start time for the first worship service is 10:30 am and it runs thru that evening.

July seems like a long way off, but it'll be here before you know it. July 18th & 19th we will be hosting the Rustic Farm De-Spook Clinic. It is a 16-hour clinic during which participants will gain a better understanding of equine vision and psychology. Giving riders better tools to overcome obstacles they may encounter. For additional information please see Dona Fox.

Thank you to Terri for volunteering to be the Point Rider for sending out cards to people. If you have any greeting cards, get well cards, thinking of you cards, etc. any cards that you'd like to donate please see Terri. On a similar note, we've had a lot of people under the weather lately, so please take time to call and check on one another.

Fun Horse Facts: Horses have an almost perfect range of vision. Since horses’ eyes lay flat against the sides of their head, it allows them 350° vision. Horses were created with this feature to help them evade predators. As such, horses have the biggest eyes of any known land animal.

God Bless and Happy Trails!
