Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter



Howdy Pardners,


Our Cowboy Church will be going through a time of “Renewing Our Vision” over the next few Months. I am working on the plan of how we will do the various phases of this Renewal. We did this about 5 years ago, and the result was that our church grew and people got saved, we had Horse Shows and other new outreach ministries begin, we built our new building addition, with our New Fellowship Hall, our New Kitchen, New Bathrooms and Cowtown (our Kids Bible Learning Area). We also built our New Barn, and more recently completed the construction of our Great New 100’ x 100’ Arena Roof. All by, and to the Glory of, God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.


We have many new people since we first did this Vision Renewal five years ago. Our new members have their own unique spiritual gifts and talents they can, and want to, use for the Lord and His Church, so we pray everyone will participate in this Renewal of Our Vison” process! Details coming soon!


The New Arena is now ready for horses!

Anyone that wants to bring their horses to ride, may do so before and after our 11 am Sunday Worship Service, or before our 7 pm Service on Thursdays. We’d love to see some horses in there.


Thanks to Robert Philips for his great grading work with his skid steer so we have better drainage away from the arena. Thanks also to Wayne Walker for putting the downspout extensions on the 8 arena downspouts.


Thanks also to Steve and Anthony Barker for the awesome arena gate they put in last Sunday afternoon after church and after our great Potluck dinner. With the heavy-duty posts and automatic latches, that gate will be used by many happy horseback riders for many years to come.




The Annual Saddle Up for St. Jude Trail Ride will be Saturday, September 18th beginning at David and Brenda Reeds Farm on Randolph County Road 2910 (South off Hwy B going toward the Bennitt Conservation Area). Lunch and drinks provided for the riders on the trail for a donation. The ride starts at 10:00 am sharp from David and Brenda Reeds farm and goes onto the Rudolf Bennitt Conservation Area. (The riders can choose a 2.5 hour ride or a 3.5 hour ride. Riders may also get sponsors for the ride to raise money for St. Jude.


There is also a Potluck meal that evening about 5 pm at the Reed’s farm, so bring a dish or desert. (Meat is provided). After the meal, there is a live and a silent auction to raise money for St. Jude Hospital. Fliers about this event can be picked up at church.


MaryAnn and I plan to go over with my chainsaw and clear any limbs on the horse trail section from the Slab Campground down past the gun range this Friday Sept 10th at the Rudolf Bennitt Conservation Area, where the St. Jude Ride will be. Meet us there at the Slab Campground about 10 am if you want to help.


The Back Country Horsemen is also having a Workday on Saturday Sept 11th at 9 am starting at the Boy Scout Camp on the Bennitt Area, and they would welcome any help. Then, the St. Jude Committee, along with David and Brenda Reed, are having a Workday Sunday Sept 12th at 9 am there. You may bring your horses, saws, snippers, and work gloves to any of these.




A Trail Riding and Obstacle Clinic is being planned by Dona Fox for Saturday morning, October 9th, at 10 am in the New Cowboy Church Arena. Bring your horse and enjoy some great instruction from Dona on how to handle whatever you might encounter out on the trail. Sign up at church if you plan to bring your horse. If you don’t bring a horse, bring your chair and watch!


Our New Arena “Ribbon Cutting” and our First Horse Fun Show in the New Arena will be on Saturday starting at 10:30 am, October 23rd. We are inviting all of our arena roof donors and friends that helped us build the New Arena Roof, to attend this event if they can, so we can thank them for their generosity! Jacque Barker and MaryAnn Larison are our Point Riders for the Horse Show. More details to follow soon! The Ribbon Cutting will be at 10:00 am.

The new “Complete Green Letters Study” (A great spiritual growth book by Miles J. Stanford) is well underway, and is being led by me, with MaryAnn’s help. The study can be viewed on our Cowboy Church Face Book page this Wednesday (Today), September 8th at 7 pm, so look for it there instead of on my personal Facebook Page. That way it will go to more people that follow our Cowboy Church on the Church Facebook Page. We will cover Chapter 23, “Sanctification and Consecration” beginning on page 100. It would help if you have read through the chapter ahead of time and perhaps jot down any questions you might want to post.


Many already have a copy of “The Complete Green Letters,” but if you do not, I have (now 7) new copies and I can sell you one for my cost of $15.00.


(I highly recommended this book for those that want to grow-up in their salvation and in their walk in the Lord Jesus.)


Barb and Ray Spencer are planning the Kids’ Cowboy Church Fall Festival on Sunday Oct 31st . There will be a chuckwagon lunch in the horse arena and games and barrel train rides, hay bale maze, and much more.


The Church Financial Report from Sandy: Our General Fund, at last report, was $5,709.07. Thank you, everyone!


For those who wish to send your tithes and offerings by mail, the address is:


Gateway Cowboy Church

PO Box 45

Clark, Missouri 65243


Thanks again to all who are willing to give!


Our Worship Service times are Sundays at 11 am and Thursdays at 7 pm.

May the Good Lord Keep Your Trails Clear of Every Danger, and May all of them be Happy Trails for You and Your Families!
