Happy Trails to All!

Howdy Pardners,

While the snow outside makes it look like winter, Spring is really just around the corner.

Psalm 71:8 declares "My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long."

Through a typical day we can find ourselves talking to a great many people, about a great many topics. Sometimes, in our conversations we might catch ourselves communicating with anger, complaining, or even gossipping. Or we can choose to declare the greatness, majesty, and grace of our heavenly Father all throughout our day. Why not choose to praise God with our mouths and tell him of his greatness and let others know of his grace as we go about our activities? Then, at the end of our day, we can honor God one final time before closing our eyes when we say, "My mouth was filled with your praise as I declared your splendor all day long!"

Please make time to join us in the fellowship at the Cowboy Church Church Worship Services on Sundays at 11 am and on Thursday evenings at 7 pm. Remember, you don’t have to own a horse to attend a Cowboy Church.

We want to once again acknowledge and say a big thank you to Dick & Liane Huckfeldt on Sunday mornings, and Jim & Kathy Zonek on Thursday evenings for supplying donuts and treats for our fellowship time. They have graciously volunteered to do this, so please thank them as this is something we all look forward to and enjoy.

There is an upcoming equine event covering "Respect Through Groundwork" led by Dona Fox here at the Christ Riders Arena on April 8th. This clinic is designed to develop respect and trust between horse and rider which leads to a solid foundation for riding. There is a sign up sheet with more information at the back of the church. Space is limited, so if you've been thinking about it, it's time to sign up now.

Missouri Baptist Association is holding Disaster Relief Training coming up this spring. This is an outstanding opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people and be a witness for Christ. There will be training related to mass care and feeding, chainsaw operation, flood recovery, communications, and much more. The next available session is April 14th-15th in Clinton. There are information brochures on the back table, or speak to Ron Brookshire. Register online at

The Annual Spring Trail Ride and Picnic is scheduled for May 13th at the Rudolf Bennitt Conservation Area. The trail ride will be leaving the Boy Scout Camp parking lot at 10:30. The picnic will be at the same area at 1pm. Please bring a side dish and desert, and some lawn chairs. Informational flyers and maps of the area are on the back table. We look forward to seeing you there!

Fun Fact: Back in the day, when Americans relied on horses for regular transportation, some interesting equine laws were written into the books. Just in case you were so inclined, you should know that lassoing fish from horseback is against the law in Tennessee.

We are looking into acquiring an AED for the church and would like to begin raising funds to that end. If you're wondering what an AED is – and why they seem to be located in most offices and public buildings, you're not alone. In fact, because these devices are now commonly available, more people than ever before are curious about them. So – just what is an AED?

An AED, or automated external defibrillator, is used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. They are a real life saver if and when needed, but they are not cheap. The cost of an AED starts at about $1,500.00. That may seem like a lot, but consider if it's you or your loved one who needs that care.


Our Treasurer, Sandy Bemboom, reports that our General Fund balance is at $3,384.58, and our Building fund is at $6,521.88.

For those who wish to send your tithes and offerings by mail, the address is: Gateway Cowboy Church, PO Box 45, Clark, Missouri 65243

Thank you very much to all of you who give at the Cowboy Church by placing your offering in our Offering Boot at the church, or that faithfully send your offering through the mail!

May the Good Lord Keep Your Trails Clear of Every Danger, and May all of them be Happy Trails for You and Your Families!


God Bless and Happy Trails!

Pastor Brook
