Cowboy Church, Pearline Perky, pastor, celebrated its first birthday in their new facility August 19. The church is located in rural Bradley, OK (pop. 182), located about ten miles east of Chickasha. Lu and I had the privilege to attend the morning service.
The church is experiencing growth: nine new members were added Sunday. One was a confession of faith.
Pastor Steve Cowan led MY Church in its third birthday celebration Sunday. The Mustang church started as a new church plant and now has two Sunday morning services with combined average attendance of about 100. The Mustang sanctuary has room for about 100 chairs.
Pastor Steve and Krista have worked hard at growing the church, including remodeling the facilities. The interior of the sanctuary looks so new one would not believe it is the same building. The next phase is to give the exterior of the building a new image with new sidewalks, porches, awnings and landscaping. Pastor Steve also believes in community involvement , and now serves as president of the Mustang Ministerial Alliance. He has done a very good job getting the name of the church established in the Mustang area. As another example, in the recent Heritage Day parade the church won the best float award.
