Cowboy Weekend is Here!!!

If you are any kind of Dallas Cowboy fan, you are missing out if you are not at Bay Area Fellowship Church in Corpus Christi this weekend. To say that my husband is excited is the understatement of the year. Bill Bates is speaking at all 6 of our weekend services, and Skip just received a call from him. He is absolutely giddy. Skip loves the cowboys almost as much as he loves me, which I think is a whole lot. Skip insisted that the whole family go out and get new Cowboy's attire even though we already have so many shirts, caps and jerseys from hubby's past fanatic days. The whole church is dressing up this weekend and inviting friends and neighbors to do the same. What a great evangelism tool this is! I love that our church is always finding new ways to bring people in and teach them God's word in a relative, fun way. We are also asking non Cowboy fans to dress up in their favorite teams colors and gear. Some even plan on painting their faces and maybe even wearing cheese heads. My hubby found this neat short video on Youtube that highlights Bill Bates awesome achievement as a Dallas Cowboy just in case you haven't heard of him. Please join me in praying for an amazing God honoring weekend, and that hundreds will give their lives to Christ. Here is the Youtube link for Bill Bates. Oops, just click on his name and it should take you there. It might not work every time because I just tried it and it stopped after a few seconds. I am so computer illiterate!

Wow. What a wonderfully fabulous idea! Be sure to post an update to let us know how it goes!!

That's what I love about where I attend as well. We are always looking for new ways to get the Gospel of Christ to the community! So very exciting!

That is so neat. I'm sure you'll have people come who haven't been to church in a long time.
We're big Cowboy fans too, but the T.O. thing was a bit hard to swallow. We sure do miss Tom Landry :-)
