Weekly Cowboy Church Round-Up

Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter
Howdy Pardners,
We need your help! 
This Friday evening, July 20th at 6 pm we are having our Vacation Bible School Parents’ Night. We would like our church members to attend so they can meet the children, their parents, and the kids’ other family members.  We also could use some desserts to share with our crowd that night. The church will provide the hotdogs, chips, drinks, plates and plastic ware for the dinner after the VBS Program.  If you can help us out by bringing a dessert that evening when you attend, that would be greatly appreciated!
Vacation Bible School at the Cowboy Church started this past Monday and runs from 9 am to 11:30 am each day.  We have averaged about 25 kids each day. New children are still welcome to attend the final two days, Thursday and Friday, July 19th and 20th.
Marcie Johnson and MaryAnn Larison are the Co-Directors for our VBS and other church members have been a great help.  We are also being helped again this year by the Crossroads Baptist Association Youth Team led by Bonnie Carter. They are all doing a great job and the kids are having a great time with the Music, Bible Study, Crafts and Recreation.  Donna Fox even brought two of her horses to VBS today and gave the kids a demonstration of horse care and training.  The kids were completely attentive to all that Donna showed them!  (Only at a Cowboy Church!)
We invite you to come and join us for our exciting Christian cowboy-style worship of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, this Sunday at 11 am and/or Monday at 7 pm. This past Sunday and Monday we had awesome services with wonderful music, testimony, and a Bible-based message. The food after the services on Monday evenings is always good and guests are encouraged to stay and enjoy the food and fellowship with all our church family.
We had a great work crew this past Sunday afternoon, working to frame-up the bathrooms in our new building addition. Thanks again to Steve Barker and all those who devoted the afternoon to the work. We will let you know when the next work day is planned.
While our VBS has been going on this week, the men from Miller’s Heating and Cooling have been working on our new air-conditioning and heating units and ductwork in the new building. They hope to have that work finished by this Friday morning.
If any of you have some barn wood that you would like to donate and that would be useful for decorating in the inside bathroom walls in the cowboy church addition, please let us know.  We have had some barn wood donated already, but we could use allot more.  We want to form a decorating committee to help with ideas on how to “cowboy-it-up,” in an artistic and rustic sorta way!
Come and see our progress!
Obstacle Course Training Sunday afternoon, August 12th – at Donna Fox’s horse arena at her home on County Road 2970 in Randolph County (First gravel road on the left just west of the Cowboy Church off Hwy B).  Please call Donna at 573-489-3992 if you are planning to attend so she will know who is interested.
