Howdy and Welcome to our Website!
Have you been down the road and over the trail lookin’ for a place to settle in on a Sunday mornin’? Well, perhaps I got an answer for you; Lone Star Cowboy Church in Nevada, Texas.
You may wonder, “What the heck is Cowboy Church?” Cowboy church is a place for folks who either don’t like church or can’t seem to find one that is a simple, straightforward, come as you are, down to earth, friendly, fun (yea, you can have fun in church), no puttin’ on airs, truthful, accepting of you as you are, family oriented place to experience God.
We ain’t perfect by no means. We’re just a bunch of men, women and children (cowboys, farmers, bankers, executives, school teachers, laborers, fire fighters, law enforcement, etc…) who love God and His Son, Jesus Christ, and the western heritage lifestyle and the simple way of life and family. You put that all together, mix in a cowboy band, add a dash of humor, seasoned well with some cowboy poetry, and folks who are real and, by golly, you got Cowboy Church.
Y’all come and give us a look see and let’s ride life’s trail together.
We look forward to seein’ y’all on down the road.
How do and welcome to the Lone Star Cowboy Church website.
Lone Star Cowboy Church is a church for folks who don’t like church. Now, that may sound a bit strange at first glance, howsomever, it is who we are. Our whole reason for existing is to be a place where anyone can come and feel immediately like they belong. We don’t put on airs and, by golly, you won’t have to either.
Clara, Chelsea and I came to Nevada, Texas with a vision in mind to reach out to the Cowboy culture, the Western Heritage culture, for Jesus. Although born and raised in Texas (Amarillo) I had been gone for several years. Given an opportunity to come and be a part of a new cowboy church, we jumped at the change (that is, after God got my attention with His heavenly hotshot).
Clara was raised on a ranch in Colorado, where we met and married, and I rodeoed for near thirteen years ’til them bulls just kept gettin’ tougher and tougher and I didn’t keep pace with ’em. So we both have had a love affair with the western lifestyle for as long as we both can remember. Now, God has given us an opportunity to join up our love for the cowboy with His love for the cowboy in a great way–namely, Lone Star Cowboy Church.
Come give us a tryout some Sunday to see if we fit your pistol. I’m sure you’ll feel at home just like we do.
Ridin’ the trail together.
Ridin’ for the Brand “n” Followin’ the Star….
Our mission here at Lone Star Cowboy Church is to “gather in” the critters (critters bein’ us two-legged folks) within the territory so as to make ranch hands (followers of Jesus) out of ’em.
We aim to be a Christ-centered church where folks from all walks of life can come and feel welcome. We attempt to do this by lowering barriers and accepting all people just the way that Jesus did when He walked this dusty trail and we do it in the tradition of the western heritage culture (The Cowboy Lifestyle).
