In Which Hitty Goes to Cowboy Church and a Barrel Race

Submitted by Hitty Gale


Today, my adopted humans and I joined other early morning worshipers for Cowboy Church at the C Bar C Expo Center Located in Cloverdale Indiana. A very talented young cowboy led the congregation in worship including an original song he wrote recently.  

Come as you are to Cowboy Church.  All are welcome...even dogs

We received a copy of The Way for Cowboys, an NIV version of the New Testament.  I has devotionals and testimonies of cowboys and their families.

Pastor Jon Hemmer took his text from Luke 8:22 and spoke on overcoming fear.  According to Google, there are 365 scriptures in the Bible that say “do not fear” or encourage us to “be not afraid”.  That’s one inspiring scripture for every day of the year.

The Barrels & Bling Chalee Gilliland Memorial Barrel Race is a very special event held on the first weekend in July.  Chalee Gilliland was an 11-year old avid barrel racer who had Cystic Fibrosis. Her family and friends host a barrel race and silent auction in her memory. All proceeds benefit a Hoosier with Cystic Fibrosis.
