Our Current Round-Up Newsletter:

Howdy Pardners,

 

Our Trail Obstacle Clinic last Saturday had five riders with their horses getting some great one-on-one instruction from Dona Fox, who taught from the back of her horse as well. Thank you, Dona, for this excellent clinic!

 

Our New Tween and Teen Youth Leaders, Krista Lutz, and her husband, Nathaniel, met with parents, and teens last Sunday after our church worship service. Their plan is to have the First Youth Ministry Gathering of our teens on Thursday, May 26th at 5:30 pm at the Cowboy Church. They will be using the NIV Bible, which each teen will receive from the Cowboy Church, and they will also be teaching from a book from Lifeway Christian Books, “Creative Bible Lessons in Essential Theology, 12 Lessons to Help Students Know What They Believe.” Youth from 10 years old up to 17 are invited to join in. Youth meetings will start with a fun outdoor activity, to burn of a little energy, and then they will go inside for the study and discussion time. Worship, Prayer, Christian Service, and, Making Christian Friends will all be important aspects of this New Youth Ministry.

 

Speaking of our Youth, we will be baptizing two of our youth this Sunday, May 22nd, in our baptismal horse trough. Come and be a witness to Heidi and Nick Beagle being baptized into Jesus in believer’s baptism. We rejoice with them and their parents, Jack and Brandi Beagle!

Dates and Times for other up-coming events at the Cowboy Church:

Janie Wells’ next Knitting and Crocheting Class will be this Saturday May 21st at 11 am at the Cowboy Church. Everyone is welcome, even if you have not attended these free classes before.

 

The Equine Dental Clinic, May 21st - This Event has been CANCELED, due to not many signing up. Please contact Dona Fox if you have questions about this equine dental service,

 

Our Church Men had their 7th meeting of the new Book Study last Tuesday evenings at 7 pm. There were five men attending. Those 5 men had a great time of sharing with each other and looking at how we are called to give our lives into the perfect and capable hands of Jesus and our Heavenly Father, so as to be the men God wants us to be. The book the men are studying is Dr. Tony Evans’ book, “No More Excuses”. (How to be a good Christian man, husband, and father.) The study is being led by our own Ron Brookshire and Jack Beagle. Come join them this coming Tuesday, May 24th at the Cowboy Church at 7 pm. All of our men, and any adult male guest, are welcome to participate. This will be the last meeting in this particular study for the men. Another study in another area of theology for Christian Men will likely happen sometime in the fall.

 

I (Pastor Dale) am leading a study in, “The Green Letters” by Miles J. Stanford, on Facebook Live Wednesdays at 7 pm. This great Christian Spiritual Growth Book will teach you the “Not I, but Christ” life! I hope many of you will join in this study with me on Facebook Live on our Gateway to the High Country Cowboy Church Facebook Page. This coming Wednesday, May 25th, we will take a look at Chapter 8, entitled, “Identification”. Want to know what Identification concerning our walk with Jesus means? Join us on Facebook Live that night to find out! You may also view the studies later at your convenience, since the studies will be posted on our Cowboy Church Facebook Page.

 

Thanks to Ron Brookshire for mowing our front field on our church grounds this week. It looks beautiful! Ron also made some repairs on the church tractor to help with better gas flow. It would sputter at times before, but he said it is running great now! Thank you, Ron.

 

I want to thank also all our musically talented Cowboy Church Band Members for their leadership in our music worship. Thanks to Steve Barker, Beth Brookshire (on that great new piano she bought), Gary Hood, Brook Kurth, Jerry Perry, Greg Rasmussen, Wayne Walker, and Kathy Zonek. Some sing and play on Sundays, some on Thursdays, and some both times. Thanks also to Stan Freeman and Ron Ray that are guests musicians for us on some Thursday evenings. We appreciate you all!

 

Thanks to MaryAnn Larsion, for her warm welcomes and detailed announcements at each service, (and her always good coffee at our fellowship table), followed by Ron Brookshire’s, always insightful devotionals. Top all that off with my Bible-based messages and Buckaroo Times, and then good doughnuts and sweet cowboy friendship and fellowship after the services, and I think we have something that greatly glorifies God and also feeds and encourages the spirits of all who attend.

 

Thanks also goes to our Cow Town (Our Children’s Worship) Leaders we now have. They are Brandi Beagle, Beth Brookshire, Cindy Green, Daffany Hood, Linda Sharp, and Barb Spencer. They do an awesome job teaching our kids on a level they can understand. Thank you, Christian Leaders!

 

Come join us on Sundays at 11 am and on Thursday evenings at 7 pm. If you haven’t been with us in a while, we have noticed your absence, and we are missing you! Each of you are a part of our family and you are each important to us. When you are not there, your family knows it and we miss you. So, saddle-up and come join us this week if you can! If you cannot come for some reason, please try to join us for each service on Facebook Live. And please give those broadcasts a “like” or make a comment, so we know you were watching! Thanks!
