We're Back!


Please pray with us that the virus will be contained soon, that God would grant healing to those near and far away who are affected by it, and that God would give wisdom to medical and government personnel who are on the front lines of dealing with the crisis.

Psalm 103

1  Bless the Lord, O my soul,
         and all that is within me,
         bless his holy name!
2   Bless the Lord, O my soul,
         and forget not all his benefits,
3   who forgives all your iniquity,
        who heals all your diseases,
4   who redeems your life from the pit,
        who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

5   who satisfies you with good
        so that your youth is renewed ike the eagle's.

6   The Lord works righteousness
        and justice for all who are oppressed.
7   He made known his ways to Moses,
        his acts to the people of Israel.
8   The Lord is merciful and gracious,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9   He will not always chide,
        nor will he keep his anger forever.
10  He does not deal with us according to our sins,
        nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11  For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
        so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12  as far as the east is from the west,
        so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13  As a father shows compassion to his children,
        so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
14  For he knows our frame;
        he remembers that we are dust.

15  As for man, his days are like grass;
        he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16  for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
        and its place knows it no more.
17  But the steadfast love of the Lord is from
     everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
        and his righteousness to children's children,
18  to those who keep his covenant
        and remember to do his commandments.
19  The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
        and his kingdom rules over all.

20  Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
        you mighty ones who do his word,
        obeying the voice of his word!
21  Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
        his ministers, who do his will!
22  Bless the Lord, all his works,
        in all places of his dominion.
     Bless the Lord, O my soul!

Let My Life Be a Light

Let me live, blessed Lord, in the light of thy word
Let my life be a light on a hill
Leading souls now astray to the straight narrow way

Help me do some good deed while I live

   Let my life be a light shining out through the night
   May I help struggling ones to the fold
   Spreading cheer everywhere to the sad and the lone
   Let my life be a light to some soul

Give me wisdom and power, every day, every hour
Let me drink from the fountain above
And guide my footsteps aright through this dark and stormy night
Give me peace, give me joy, give me love


Give me souls for my hire, let my light be on fire
Shining out to the world as a guide
Help me rescue someone sinking now with no hope
That in Heaven we shall ever abide


Amazing Grace/My Chains are Gone

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind, but now I see

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

   My chains are gone, I've been set free
   Jesus my Savior rescued me
   He shut the door on death and the grave
   Unending love, Amazing Grace

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun


Cowboy Church and the Buffalo Chip
Romans 12:15-21
Steve Gilbertson

The unlikely marriage between our church and the Buffalo Chip is a favorite story
we tell around here. On this day of rememberance and gratitude, we reveal the story
behind the story - one which goes all the way back to a sermon preached at the Buffalo
Chip during Wild West Days in 2010.

Romans 12:15-21

15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. 16 Live in harmony with one another.
Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
17 Repay no one evil
for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. 18 If
possible, so far as it depends on
you, live peaceably with all. 19 Beloved, never avenge
yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it
is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay,
says the Lord." 20 To the contrary, "if your enemy is hungry,
feed him; if he is thirsty, give him
something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head."
21 Do not be
overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
