Blizzard Announcement

Due to the extreme weather forecasted now through Sunday night, services for The River and Flathead Valley Cowboy Church will be canceled on February 18, 2018. But we will have a special opportunity for you to join with our church family in worship thanks to today's technology. WE ARE HOSTING A LIVE VIDEO STREAM on The River's Facebook page.

John Gabriel Arends will be leading an acoustic set of worship from his home and Pastor Paul will link to the live stream to give a message from the Word from his home. THE STREAM WILL START ON SUNDAY AT 11AM and is open to anyone. Simply come to the Facebook page ( You can watch on your computer, phone, tablet, or smart TV. And because it's Facebook, you'll be able to interact live in the comments.

If you plan to join the live stream, please be ready a few minutes early. Since this steam is being produced for an emergency situation and not under our ideal situation, we hope you'll be patient if we have any technical difficulties. It may be raw, but we expect real encounters with God for those who have hungry hearts!

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

We are excited to invite everyone to come join us on Christmas Eve for a special country Christmas!

This season holds incredible meaning. You see, God sent His Son to come into this dark world. God was invading with His light. The very first people to find out about this history-altering truth were a lot like cowboys--shepherds. They were just simple people who were acquainted with hard work, open country, the harsh elements, and with animals. This good news of Christmas is for cowboys. Even more than that, God's son found His first home in a manger! God loved us so much that He was willing to stop into our poverty and darkness in order that we could taste the goodness of Heaven. The love of God came knocking on our door.

We're going to have an incredible party as we celebrate the birth of our Savior and to worship Him. You won't want to miss this amazing time as we listen to great cowboy music, hear a powerful message, and enjoy the friendly faces. We're going to have candles and just about every other thing a cowboy could need to celebrate Jesus' birth.

(By the way, you don't have to be a cowboy to come. Everyone is welcome. Just come as you are and enjoy a great evening!) See you there!
