Cowboy Church

I am wondering how many of my blog friends have Cowboy Churches nearby. I would think perhaps my followers from Texas. Cowboy Church is really big here, and there are many. There are signs posted everywhere, and ads in the paper.





Here are the Cowboy Commandments:

Don't shoot first, hit a smaller man, or take unfair 
    advantage.
Don't go back on your word or a trust confided in you.
Tell the truth.
Be gentle with children, the elderly, and animals.
Help people in distress.
Be a good worker.
Keep yourself clean in thought, speech, action, 
    and personal habits.
Respect women, parents, and the law.

I guess I should check it out one Sunday.  Just find a horse and mosey on over. Could be fun.


“You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.
Matthew 16

Ginny, our Granddogger is called Snicker ,as in Snickerdoodle, because she is a Labradoodle - part Labrador and part poodle.

No that sounds like a great idea

I've never heard of cowboy church but it sounds fun. There's a church I pass every day that has a sign out that says Messy Church is here. I'm not sure what Messy church is though

do they allow cars to? we have a drive in church here, an old drive in theater that is out of use. everyone sits in there cars. I am wondering if this is similar.

Yes, we have several in Texas. I have attended one and it was a very nice service. None very close by tho.

I have seen the sign when driving from work! Seems like they have several cowboy churches in the states. Sounds interesting!

Hi Ginny, this sounds like a church I would like to visit, too! If you do visit, let us know how you liked it.

I'm finally able to get on the computer and do a few things after my vertigo bout. Yes, I've been to the doctor. I have 2 different vertigo issues going on and thankfully they don't affect me all the time. I do have BPV, like you do, and also I have recurrent dizziness after a severe bout of labrynthitis, (not sure I spelled it right). Anyway, thanks for your comment and I'm sorry to be so long in answering your question. It's good to be back to normal...whatever that is, ha!

Maybe LV has seen them in Texas, but this is all new to me! The first I've ever heard of them. I do so like their commandments!!

I do hope you keep us informed if you attend. I'd be mighty curious.

Linda said...

My aunt Sally attends a Cowboy Church in Texas. When we visited we went with. It was great fun. And a great sermon.
We sat on straw bales. Yes, the preacher rode his horse to church. ;-)
Most important the message was great.
