Howdy Pardners,

Memorial Day is an important national moment. It is a day to do more than barbeque. It is right and wise to remember the great price that some have paid to preserve the civil and religious freedoms we Americans have the luxury to take largely for granted.

But the importance of Memorial Day is more for our future than it is for our past. It is crucial that we remember the nightmares and why they happened. We forget them at our own peril. The future of the United States depends in large part on how well we collectively remember and cherish what liberty really is, and the terror of tyranny. 

So as we commemorate Memorial Day as Americans, let us do it with profound gratitude for the extraordinary common grace given to us when men and women laid their lives down for the sake of America’s survival. And let us remember the past evils that we may not repeat them in the future. 

And as Christians, let us make every day a memorial day. Let us “beware lest we forget the Lord” (Deut. 6:12).

As June arrives this next week, so does our monthly time of fellowship. So please plan to join us Thursday evening after church on June 1st, and then on Sunday June 4th after the service.

In Psalm 79:9 is a prayer which calls out "Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name's sake.

I'm sure there must be times when God must be disgusted with our ungodly behaviors and unholy choices. Thankfully, he is still our Savior when we cry out to confess our sins and shortcomings to him. There are, undoubtedly, moments when he acts to bless us when we are undeserving because we are his people who wear his name, and he longs to be gracious and merciful to us. Even when we are not who we should be, God acts compassionately to deliver us and preserve the glory of his name. God is our faithful Savior and loving deliverer, so let's passionately live to bring glory to his name!

If you ordered any Cowboy Church shirts recently and have not received your order, please see Cindy at church. 

The youth are collecting non-perishable food items here at the church from May 18th through June 15th for donation to the Laura Miller George Help Center in Mexico, MO, See Brandi Beagle for more info if you have questions.

The Back Country Horseman of Missouri (BCHMO) is having their Clean Up Ride/Membership Appreciation Ride the weekend of June 9th at Brushy Creek Lodge & Resort. Anyone interested can find out more at their website www.bchmo.org

Vacation Bible School is scheduled for Wednesday July 19th. We look forward to another great year of sharing and showing Christ. We are looking for volunteers for a variety of activities, so please talk to Daffnay Hood for more information.

Operation Christmas Child is a ministry affiliated with Samaritan's Purse. It involves collecting and distributing gifts packed by individuals for children around the world at Christmas time. This provides each and every one of you to be involved in missions. There is information, as well as shoe box "seeds" available at the church.

Fun Fact: I've about run out of silly horse related laws for now. I'll share more when I find them. So instead, I'll share some fun horse facts. Did you know that the smallest horse recorded was less than two feet tall? Thumbelina, a miniature sorrel brown mare, holds the Guinness World Record as the world’s smallest horse. Thumbelina measured only 1 foot 5 inches in height and weighed the same as a medium-sized dog.

Summer Camp is an incredible ministry and a whole lot of fun! Youth Camp for grades 7-12 is July 24-28, Children's Day Camp for grades K-2 is July 29th, and Children's Camp for grades 3-6 is July 30-August 2nd. If you have any children or teens in your life please take time to consider sending them to camp this summer. Below are links to more information.
