"Cowboy church is a place for folks to come together to worship the Lord Jesus Christ without a whole lot of frills.
Come be part of a community of people who can be who they want to be, and who genuinely care for each other."
Wasatch Cowboy Church is a western-themed, independent gathering of people who worship together in a relaxed, western style appealing to those who like the outdoors and a family atmosphere. The church emphasizes welcoming visitors and loving on them with open arms. It is a “come-as-you-are” atmosphere where folks who have felt disconnected from religion for various reasons can come and feel right at home. Wasatch Cowboy Church believes the worship service should be informal and enjoyable with an absence of ritual. At Wasatch Cowboy Church, we get a lot of folks that probably wouldn’t go into a normal church setting. Folks feel like they have become a part of something that matters. Wasatch Cowboy Church just wants to reach folks for Jesus! Of course, the cowboy garb and background are optional. You don’t need to be a cowboy or a cowgirl to enjoy Cowboy Church. …Some of our people have never been on a horse. You may walk in as a stranger but you will walk out with new friends.
The church is associated with the American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches (AFCC). The American Fellowship of Cowboy Churches (AFCC) is a non-profit Christian organization made up of cowboy churches whose leaders and congregations believe the Bible is the true, complete and unfailing Word of God.
The service begins each week with praise music at 10 a.m. The service includes country inspirational music mixed with gospel favorites, prayer and praise time, a 30 to 40 minute sermon based on Bible Scriptures, and a share-a-meal luncheon. It is not required that you bring a meal to share, you are welcome to stay and have a bite to eat, and get to know us, as we get to know you. This is what Western hospitality is all about, share a meal and visit.
Coming from a cowboy background, and still a cowboy at heart, Pastor Larry was raised on a farm in Fort Morgan, Colorado - a place he refers to as "Plains Country." Later, he raised his own family in Preston, Idaho, a smaller but similar setting. Once his children were grown, Pastor Larry moved to the top of Utah where he worked as a heating and air-conditioning tech at Hill Air Force Base. He is now retired, lives in Hooper, Utah, and devotes his time to Cowboy church, his lovely wife, Lily, and his family. He loves what he does and still has a lot of country left in him.
