Cowboy Church Round-Up Weekly Newsletter


Howdy Friends,


At our Wrangler Meeting Monday evening, the Wranglers voted to proceed with the project to have a 100’ x 100’ arena roof built over our arena. Wayne Walker has been the Point Rider on this idea and the planning of this project. Wayne says, “If we are going to fulfill our mission of being a Cowboy Church, we need to be able to use our horse arena when we want to.


The roof will allow us to get allot more use out of our arena and keep us from having to cancel so many horse events and horse clinics, as we have had to do before because of a muddy arena. cost will be right at $80,000. We currently have about $30,000 in our building fund available for the roof project. Someone has also agreed to provide up to $16,000 in matching funds for every dollar our church members or friends of the church would contribute to this project. That would give us another $32,000 if we can reach that goal. We hope to secure some funds from businesses in the Central Missouri area that might make a donation in return for a banner advertising their business to be hung in the arena. If you have any other ideas on how else to raise the needed funds, please let us know. 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. Every dollar will help reach that $16,000 matching fund money! 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!


By-the-way, we actually still plan to have our 200’ long arena. It is just that we will only have half of it covered. The 200’ length will allow us to have rodeo-like events, such as barrel racing and team roping, if we want to do those events. We will just then need dry days for those kinds of events. But for most of the things we will be doing, the 100’ covered part of the arena will work well for us. I can foresee that we could also use the covered arena for outdoor worship, for picnics, for tack auctions and sales, and other community events, making it a good outreach tool for the Cowboy Church.


We will have another outdoor Worship Service at 6 pm this Sunday, Sept. 20th. (There will be no Sunday morning service!) You can stay in your cars while still seeing the stage, with our cowboy band and the pulpit. You will be able to listen to the service on your car radios on the frequency FM 89.7 that we are broadcasting on (a designated radio frequency that no radio station in the area is using). You may also sit in lawn chairs in front of your cars or trucks and listen over our stage speakers.

The bathrooms in the church will be open for anyone that wants to use them.


Horseback riding in the arena Sunday will also be encouraged before the evening service from 4 to 6 pm.

Our Monday service will continue in the building as usual at 7 pm.


So, our up-coming schedule is:

Sun Sept 20 Outdoor Service at 6 pm (No Masks Needed)

Mon Sept 21– Indoor Service at 7 pm (Masks Encouraged)


(In case of in-climate weather on a particular Sunday evening, the service will again be moved indoors. Once it gets too dark at 6 pm in the fall, we will move the Sunday service time to earlier in the day.)


We will still use our FM Transmitter, even if the weather causes us to move inside on Sunday nights. (We also are using the transmitter for our Monday evening service if you do not feel comfortable coming inside right now.)


We are still posting 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. (We really hope all of you will plan to come to our Sunday Outdoor Services on Sept 20th and/or our Service on Monday night!)


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:
