Emmanuel Cowboy Church had its first service Sunday, May 7. (Submitted)
JONESBORO, Ark. – Emmanuel Cowboy Church in northern Jonesboro welcomed a crowd of more than 280 people on Sunday, May 7, for its kickoff service and saw two come to faith in Christ.
“I don’t think it could have went any better,” Pastor Michael Partain said. He noted even more people attended the block party following the service with bounce houses, popcorn and more. Several members of Drover Cowboy Church and Three Trees Cowboy Church came over after their services to help with the event.
Emmanuel Cowboy Church is the first cowboy church plant in Arkansas since COVID and the sixth overall church plant of Three Trees Cowboy Church. It is located on the campus of Nettleton Baptist Church.
When asked how people could pray for the church, Partain asked for continued prayers over every corner of the ministry and for wisdom.
“Every church wants to grow in numbers. I just want to see people grow spiritually, mature in Christ, and figure out their purpose and calling in life. God has a purpose for them. They just need some help figuring out what that is and what that looks like,” Partain said.
Services are at 10 a.m. on Sunday at Emmanuel Cowboy Church, 2750 Clinton School Road. They also have a fellowship meal every Wednesday at 6 p.m. followed by Bible study.
