Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter


Howdy Pardners,


# This Sunday, November 29th, we will have our Cowboy Church worship service, music and message, broadcast on Facebook Live once again. There will be no worship attendees inside the Cowboy Church building. Only the Cowboy Band members (that are well at this time) and MaryAnn and I, will be inside the building. You will be able to log-in to the Cowboy Church Facebook Page, or see it on your Facebook Newsfeed, at 11 am and watch the worship service from 11 am until noon. If you do watch, give us a thumbs-up, a smiley face, or a heart, and make a comment if you like, so we know you are worshiping with us.


Last week, was our first live service. We have a few bugs to work out for this week. Mainly, we need to get our sound level up so you don’t have to turn the volume on your devices all the way up to hear the service.


If you miss the service at 11 am, you will still be able to watch it at a later time by going to the church Facebook Page and clicking on the service video.




We are taking these new steps in our effort to keep our church family safe in this Covid-19 pandemic time. We have heard that Boone Hospital and the University Hospital are having a big influx of Covid patients. Likely everyone now knows of a family member or a friend that has the Covid virus, or has had it.


We want to thank all of you who have been sending your tithes and offerings in to the Cowboy Church by snail mail. *** (This is especially important right now for keeping us going until the pandemic winds down.) *** (Our church mailing address is near the end of this newsletter.)

Thank You!


We pray everyone was safe during Thanksgiving and that you all were able to enjoy some turkey and dressing somehow and give thanks to the Good Lord for all His blessings to us. God is our refuge and our strength! Let us give thanks to Him always!


Our Worship Schedule this week is:

Sunday Nov 29th

Our Service will be on Facebook Live from 11 am until noon.

No worshippers will be in the building; however, we will still have our FM Transmitter Broadcasting the service on FM 89.7 for anyone that wants to come park in the parking lot in their cars or trucks and listen to the service that way. (This might be a good way to worship with us if you do not have Facebook.)


Monday Nov 30th

There will be NO Monday evening worship service this Monday, or Monday Evenings on-going, until the pandemic winds down.


We are also praying for Lori Perkins and her family in the passing of her Mom, Janice Perkins. Janice got Covid-19 while in a nursing home in Moberly, and with her copd and other pre-existing conditions, it was too much for her to battle. Our hearts go out to Lori!

We had been praying for Pastor Kevin Kohler, the pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Brazito, MO who had Covid. I am sad to report that Pastor Kohler went home to Jesus and our Heavenly Father this past week. His funeral service is today at Pleasant Hill Church.

Also, Pastor Denzil Webb, recently retired from the Russellville Baptist Church in Russellville, MO, died this week from cancer and complications with the Covid virus. Denzil baptized all three of our grandsons at the Russellville Church. These two pastors are our losses, but heaven’s gain of these two great men of God. No word yet on Denzil’s service. Our prayers are for their families and churches.


We are also praying for Stan and Jorene Brooks’ family, and Gary and Daffany Hood’s son-in-law’s parents in Mexico, MO who both have the Covid virus.

Louise and Jay Marble asked for prayer for their Grandson, Daniel Callaway, that has been admitted to a hospital in Oklahoma City with Covid 19. We are happy to hear Steve and Jacque Barker are on the mend after their bout with Covid. We also heard that Pastor Chris Canote, of Perche Baptist Church, and several members of his family and church have the Covid virus.


Thanks to everyone for adding all these good folks to your prayer list. The Bible says, “The prayers of a righteous person have a powerful effect.” James 5:16


And we need to pray for our nation after this deeply divided election, which half of the nation thinks is over and half do not. However, it appears there are legal battles in full swing across the country about the election improprieties. Pray that God’s will be done in all of this.


I preached a message Monday night, Nov 16th, at the Cowboy Church entitled, “The Battle for the Spirit of Our Nation”. It is one that I hope you will all listen to on our Church Facebook Page. It was taken from the entirety of the Bible, and from Matthew 10, in the Lord Jesus’ own words to His disciples, which includes you and me. Watch it, if you have not already. We boosted it several times on Facebook and it has already been watched by over 700 people now from Jefferson City, Columbia, Moberly, Macon, Centralia, Sturgeon, Fayette, Higbee, Clark, Hallsville, and Fulton, with another 5 days of boosting yet to go.


# Update on the Cowboy Church Horse Arena Roof Project * * *

With the generous donations we have already received from many of our church members and from friends of the church, we currently have about $51,725 in our building fund available for our Cowboy Church Horse Arena Roof Project ($85,400 is the total needed to build the roof.)


If you would like to make a donation to our arena roof, just make your check out to the Gateway Cowboy Church and mark it “Arena Roof” in the notation area. Thanks, in advance, to all of you that plan to contribute to this Great Cowboy Church Project that will always be used for the Glory of the Lord!


Thanks also, to Dona Fox who made our “Arena Fund Thermometer” that is on the stage at the church. With the thermometer we can visually see our progress toward meeting our arena roof goal.


For those who wish to, (and we pray you do!) you may mail your offerings or arena roof donations to:


Gateway Cowboy Church

PO Box 45

Clark, Missouri 65243


Thanks again to all who are able to give!


We are a Southern Baptist Church and our Facebook Live worship service time is Sundays at 11 am.


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

Pastor Dale and MaryAnn Larison c}:-{ (
