    Yippee! These folks are a whole lot of fun to worship with! They immediately made us feel at home! They meet in the Hill Baptist Church building. Pastor Bill Johnson is the shepherd and the little cowboy church in the north valley is growing and thriving. You are welcome and encouraged to come join us for a wonderful time of good food for the body, spirit and soul. First time visitors  need not bring anything but an appetite and a longing for the kind of love and fellowship not easily found these days. Boots and hats and jeans and casual wear are welcome.  You can even ride your horse over, because we have a hitching rail.

    "Our natural, unspoiled Desert setting is the main draw to Desert Trails RV Parks location. But we have also accumulated many amenities since 1998, and we surprise our guests with the extent of our Facilities. We are a 40+ RV Park and attract an energetic customer base. This is reflected in our Hiking, Biking, Dances, Aerobics and other Outdoor Activities.Not under any measurable category, are the amazing Artists who perform here. Our enthusiastic audiences like the conventional shows and most evenings are well attended and generate an "electric" intimate atmosphere which encourage top names to return to our relatively small venue at Desert Trails!" A "pass the hat" donation will be taken for Barry's performance. For more info contact Wyatt at 520 883-8340 or check out their website at http://deserttrailsrvpark.com/

It is relevant to the Cowboy lifestyle (i.e. clothing, setting, music and so on) and activities, such as ropings, cuttings, sortings, trail rides, play days, clinics, camps, rough stock events, barn dances, etc. It is simple, non-judgemental and accepting, that is fun and Biblically based. Pastor Jake Shue brings the message in everyday terms and parables that makes it easy to apply to our everyday lives! Barry will be bringing the music this morning.
