"The Gateway Round-Up"


Howdy Pardners,


POTLUCK SUNDAY IS THIS SUNDAY, Dec 5th! Bring a dish or two if you can and/or a dessert and come join us for the service at 11 am and then the Potluck Dinner! If you cannot bring a dish, come and join us anyway and enjoy the Potluck Dinner. There is always plenty for everyone. Any guests are welcome to join us as well!


We are enjoying some wonderful music from our Cowboy Bands on Sundays and on Thursday nights. The bands recently added Greg Rasmussen to the group, a young Cowboy with a deep rich voice. I hope everyone will come and worship with us and enjoy the joyful sound of music worship our Cowboy Bands provide for us at each service. The Band now consists of Steve Barker, Beth Brookshire, Gary Hood, Jerry Perry, Greg Rasmussen, and Wayne Walker. They are awesome together!


And adding to them we have, MaryAnn Larsion’s warm and informative welcome, a unique devotional moment by Ron Brookshire, and the Bible-based Messages I endeavor to bring to each service, I think we are having some very special, spiritual, and God-honoring Worship Services in which we can all glorify our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

!!! We’d like to encourage everyone that has not been vaccinated for the Covid Virus to get your vaccinations and the booster, as we enter this busy Christmas Season. We don’t want any of our Cowboy Church Family Members to get ill or miss being with us, or your families, during this special season. We say this because we love you and because hospitalizations for Covid are once again surging, and that mostly with unvaccinated people.



A special thanks needs to go out to Steve Barker for his creative work on our arena downspouts. Steve ingeniously made eight hinged metal downspout elbows and extenders for our new arena, so they would efficiently expel water and leaves from the downspouts, but would also fold up during horse events and when the grass is being mowed around the arena. Thanks to Wayne Walker for helping Steve attach these to each of the downspouts after our last Sunday Service. They also adjusted several of the downspouts on our main building as well. Thanks, guys!


Thanks also to Daffany and Gary Hood, and their grandkids, Thomas and Savannah, for our neat Christmas decorations at the Cowboy Church. They look awesome! Thank you, guys!


I’d also like to make a special invitation to our former Cowboy Church members and attendees that have perhaps, for one reason or another, not been to Cowboy Church for a while. If you haven’t found another church home that you like, your Cowboy Church Family misses you and we would very much like to see you back with us and helping us to continue to worship, grow, and serve the Good Lord. We would welcome you back with open arms! Sundays at 11 am and Thursdays at 7 pm. We hope to see you again soon!


Our study in, “The Complete Green Letters” written by Miles J. Stanford is now on Facebook Live every Wednesday at 7 pm. This new section in the book is entitled, “The Ground of Growth”. If you have been with us through the last two study sessions, or you are looking for some answers as to God’s way of Christian spiritual growth, we hope you will check it out. The studies are led by me and are recorded on our Church Facebook Page. You may either join us live on Facebook for the newest study lesson on Wednesdays at 7 pm, or you may watch them later on the Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church Facebook Page.


The Church Financial Report from Sandy: Our General Fund, at last report, was $3,616.65 (Nov 28, 2021).

Thank you, everyone!

Our Building Fund has $4,308.5, which we hope to use some of soon for finer gravel on our parking area so as to make for easier walking than we currently have with the larger base rocks on the lot.
