Our vision is to build a simple building and a lighted arena on our approximately 9 acres of newly purchased land.  We will conduct different equestrian/rodeo style events regularly and provide a wholesome environment for all ages.  This new venue will give us an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ and bring out your inner cowboy and cowgirl.  Our new ranch setting will allow us to study God’s word in a relaxed non-conventional atmosphere even around campfires and at our Picnic Pavilion.  See more on "Our Vision" Page.

COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS:

We collected wedding dresses for ladies in Sudan, Africa.  In their country, if you could not have a proper wedding with a wedding dress, then you were not officially married.  A group of ladies got together and sent out the word about this, and our cowgirls were able to send two wedding dresses.


We collected white bed sheets, and gave a total of 57 of them to a church that was making strips out of them for bandages for a country in Africa.  They were very excited in getting this many white sheets from us and said it would make over 500 bandages.  We gave them $25 to help with postage to send them to Africa.


Three times, we have collected and taken over 100 boxes of cereal to the Round Rock Children's Home for distribution to the cottages where the displaced children are living.  Once when we took the boxes, the receiving clerk just started crying and took me back to the shelves where the cereal was supposed to be, and the shelves were completely bare.  She said she did not know how they were going to feed the children the next day.  What a blessing that was.


Each summer for the last 4 summers, we have had a non-perishable food drive and have collected canned foods and items such as corn meal, flour, sugar and other non-perishable items for the Austin Community Center, located on East 2nd Street.  A lot of churches do a concentrated effort to provide food to them around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but the summer months are the hardest for the Center, as children are home from school and are not getting the free breakfast and lunches provided by most elementary schools.  We have always taken in excess of 400 pounds of food.


At Christmas each year, we make up stockings for the Austin Baptist Chapel, aka The Soup Kitchen on East Cesar Chavez.  The stockings contain such hygiene items as a toothbrush and toothpaste, emery boards or nail files, bars of soap, shampoo and conditioner, individual packages of Kleenex, deodorant sticks, chapsticks, hand lotions and hand sanitizer, combs, razors, candy and gum, and a note which tells each individual "God Loves You, And So Do We".   The person who runs the Soup Kitchen says the recipients absolutely love to get the stockings.


Each January, we collect new white socks to be given to be put onto the trucks for the "Mobil Loaves and Fishes" organization.  We started out giving about 50 pairs, and this year we gave 116 pairs.  January is a rough month for the homeless and new socks are always appreciated.


For Mother's Day each year, our group makes up Mother's Day sacks for the mothers who are residents with the Round Rock Children's Home.  These mothers have usually had to leave a bad situation quickly, and they truly appreciate the niceties which we put into their Mother's Day sacks.  We give them such items as nice body lotions, good smelling body wash or fancy soaps, fancy bath scrunchies, a manicure kit as well as new fancy nail polish, combs or brushes, hair scrunchies for pony tails, nice candy, and an encouraging plastic card for their wallets with a Bible verse on it, and hopefully they look at this verse and know that they are never alone.


We have given baby products to the San Marcos Women's Shelter, such as disposable baby diapers, baby wipes, baby powder and baby lotion, and other items of baby clothing and towels and wash cloths.  This was very well received and appreciated.


We have held 3 ladies retreats which were very well attended.  The first one was a direct result of our ladies attending the Cowgirl Get Together (as it is called now), in Tyler, Texas.  Michelle Carson attended our first retreat, which was truly an honor.  We had a terrific turnout and it was a day of fun, food, good music and great inspiration.  Our next retreat was very successful also.  Well known author and speaker, Janet Burton, was our speaker, and the attendance was wonderful.


Our third retreat we invited the Cowboy Church of Fischer, Texas, and the retreat was held at Texas Old Town, in one of their venue buildings.  It was a lot of fun for the two churches to get to know each other, and the speakers were outstanding.


Each fall, our ladies group hosts and runs a large garage sale.  We solicit donations from all over and the Manchaca Fire Hall outside area is filled with all sorts of items.  The sale is held on a Saturday morning, and a terrific amount of work goes into putting this garage sale on.  We have raised in excess of $2,000 from the garage sale each time, and all of this money is donated to our Building Fund for our new building in Niederwald.  This last year we added a cold drinks, sausage wraps and pulled pork sandwiches which was very profitable.  Once again, a lot of work goes into this venture.

Our Vision

Our vision is to own approximately 10 acres of land with a simple building and a lighted arena.  We will conduct different equestrian/rodeo style events regularly and provide a wholesome environment for all ages.  This new venue will give us an opportunity to share the love of Jesus Christ and bring out your inner cowboy and cowgirl.  Our new ranch setting will allow us to study God’s word in a relaxed non-conventional atmosphere even around campfires and at our Picnic Pavilion.
 
Moving Forward…..
 
We have purchased approximately 9 acres of land in Niederwald, Texas, 8399 Niederwald Strasse (CR 2001, just west of Hwy 21).  We have reduced the loan balance on the property to $87,110.00 and are thankful to any one-time contributions to our principal balance you choose to make!  This is a 20 year note and for every $800 applied to the principal balance this will shorten the payoff by three months (saving over $2,000 in interest!)
 
Just recently (May 2015) our Agricultural Exemption was granted by the County which lowered our property taxes to less than $20 a year!
 
We have conducted “Participation Days” out at our new site, which included “Ranch Beautification,” clearing fence lines, cutting grass, removing Mesquite Trees and getting the area ready for our new Driveway.  Our driveway fundraiser is in the home stretch with only $5,758 left to be raised before we begin!
 
In November 2014 we purchased an un-assembled 3,000 sq. ft. metal building to serve as our church Assembly Hall.  We will place this on our new property but first we are raising the funds needed to cover the foundation and erection costs.  These include:

Foundation and plumbing rough-in 

$29,850

Electrical Service and rough-in

$ 4,300

Metal Building assembly 

$ 4,800
