“We are so pleased to have Cleveland’s new Cowboy Church presenting “Cowboy Church at the Fair Sunday, at 10:30 a.m.,” she said. “They are an exciting congregation with a mission to serve country people and people country at heart. That fits right in with the focus of the Bradley County Ruritan Clubs, the organizers of the fair.”
Cowboy Church is an informal, come-as-you-are, relaxed worship service. Everyone is invited and parking and admission are free.
“It’s gonna’ be a fitting celebration to kick off the last day of the fair in style,” explained Don Varnell, music director at the church. “Well-known singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett is coming out, as well as Emily Varnell, a great singer, who happens to be my daughter-in-law.
“The Cowboy Church band and singers will be there, too,” Varnell continued. “And, our pastor, Brother Wally (Varnell), will be preaching on a fitting subject for the second day of the Youth Rodeo – having balance in your life.”
“It’s the seventh year of the Foothills Country Fair, and each year we seem to get bigger and better,” said Alford. “All proceeds from the fair go right back into the community.”
The fair is located at the Tri-State Exhibition Center, just west of exit 20 off I-75.
Cleveland Cowboy Church will resume meeting at their location in the Dockery Community off of Blue Springs Road next Sunday at 11 a.m.
