Common Ground Cowboy Church was started to reach people who didn’t feel comfortable going to a traditional church in January 2008. Here at CGCC our goal is to tell as many people about Jesus Christ as possible. In order to do this we’ve chosen to create a fun non-threatening environment. Our message hasn’t changed, just the way we present it.
To succeed in giving everyone this type of environment, we have embraced a “come as you are” motto. This means we don’t care how you dress; cowboy hats, boots, spurs, shorts, and flip flops are all welcome. We want you to feel natural and at home.
We believe Christ was born of a virgin, lived a perfect, sinless life, was crucified on a cross for our sins, and then returned to life three days later. He now sits at the right hand of God in heaven. He paid the price in full for our salvation. Salvation is a gift from him, and it can’t be earned. We just have to believe and ask him into our hearts to be our Lord and Savior.
We welcome you to come and join us for Sunday morning services at 10am. You can also take a look at this site and find out more information about us. Feel free to listen to past sermons, view our mission statement, and browse our gallery page. If you have any questions or would like more information about the church, have a look at our contacts page.
Remember we don’t care where you’ve been, we just care about where you’re going!
A Cowboy’s Prayer
By Clem McSpadden
Our gracious and heavenly Father,
We pause in the midst of this festive occasion, mindful and thoughtful of the guidance that you have given us.
As cowboys, Lord, we don’t ask for any special favors, we ask only that you let us compete in this arena, as in life’s arena.
We don’t ask to never break a barrier, or to draw a round of steer that’s hard to throw, or a chute fighting horse, or a bull that is impossible to ride.
We only ask that you help us to compete as honest as the horses we ride and in a manner as clean and pure as the wind that blows across this great land of ours.
So when we do make that last ride that is inevitable for us all to make, to that place up there, where the grass is green and lush and stirrup high, and the water runs cool, clear, and deep – you’ll tell us as we ride in — that our entry fees have been paid.
These things we ask — Amen.
