Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter


Howdy Pardners,


We will be having Cowboy Church in our building this Sunday at 11 am and Monday at 7 pm, our usual times. Social distancing will be observed, masks will be welcomed, and hand shaking and hugging (for now) will be discouraged! (No Sunday Bible Stampede just yet, but we will let you know when we will start it back up again.)


Thanks to everyone that made Cowboy Church happen last Monday Night while MaryAnn and I were gone. I had a stent in my digestive system removed that morning, and I am feeling much better after everything that put me in the hospital for three days. Thanks to Ron Brookshire for giving an excellent message on, “Facing the Giants in Our Lives.” Barb Spencer videoed it so I could post it on the Church Facebook Page. We heard many nice comments about his message. Thanks to our Cowboy Band and Donal Knipp, and everyone else that made sure everyone felt welcome,


VBS 2020 Concrete and Cranes! Our VBS is this Thursday, July 9th from 9 am until 3 pm! We already have 20 kids registered! Others that have not registered may still attend. Just show up at 8:45 am that morning and we will get them registered. Please do not come if you have a fever, are not feeling well, or if you have been around anyone known to have the Covid 19 virus in the last two weeks. We will follow the CDC guidelines for this event. Children and workers will wear bandanas for activities in the building and then they will be able to remove them for the outdoor activities during the day.


The kids will enjoy Songs, Bible Stories, Fun Games, and make neat Crafts. The older youth that attend will also construct a pre-cut picnic table for the Cowboy Church. There may even be horse drawn wagon rides during the day!

”And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20b

Thanks to Daffany Hood and Barb Spencer that continue posting excellent Bible lessons for the church children on Facebook since the virus came along.


Thanks, to Dave Binney for brush hogging the high grass out on the MODOT property in front of the church building and the grass in our arena. Thanks to Ron Brookshire for getting our church finish mower fixed up and hooked to the tractor. Thanks to Jan McGuire for a nice job of mowing all of the church grounds! Thanks to Ray Spencer for weed eating the grounds as well.


We finally got the arena disked up nicely. It is now in great shape for horseback riding. Church members are welcome to bring their horses to ride before and after church worship on Sundays and Mondays. Riders may also ride this Wednesday, July 8th, from 6 pm until about 9 pm while we are setting up for VBS in the building. And for the next few Wednesdays after that from 6 to 8:30 pm during the Green Letters Study.


We will have a Wrangler (Church Leaders) Meeting on Monday evening July 13th at 5:30 pm to pray and begin planning a strategy to raise funds for a new roof over our horse arena. Pizza will be provided for the Wranglers attending. We will need everyone’s help to accomplish this goal so we can be sure our arena is available for member use and not always muddy and unusable, as it has been too often since we built it.


The Book Study Group for the book, “The Complete Green Letters” and the “Principles of Spiritual Growth” will not meet this meet Wednesday July 8th because of our VBS set-up. We will meet again on Wednesday July 15th at 7 pm. We will be studying Chapter 16 that night.


We are still posting my sermons on the Church’s Facebook Page for those of you that cannot attend the services for any reason. Please know, however, that we miss you, and if you are staying home because of the Covid 19 threat, we look forward to seeing you again once that threat has passed.


We want to thank all of you who have been sending your tithes and offerings in to the Cowboy Church by snail mail, or giving when you attend our services.


For those who want to, you may mail your offerings to:


Gateway Cowboy Church

PO Box 45

Clark, Missouri 65243


Thanks again to all who are able to give!
