The yearly Cowboy Service was enjoyed by the congregation of St. Peter's Church, Monte Creek on November 25, 2018.
We were joined by friends from St. Paul's Cathedral, St. George's Church, North Kamloops, and Bishop Barbara Andrews and Margaret Mitchell.
Butch Falk beautifully rendered to us a sermon in song. His choice of cowboy lyrics portrayed the spiritual life of a cowboy and the trials and tribulations they endure.
As St. Peter's is surrounded by a farming community, we always look forward to the saga of a cowboy named Butch accompanied by his guitar.
In the apse of the Church stood a saddle belonging to Win and Hilary Flatt which symbolizes the many hours of riding the sometimes lonely range in search of stray cattle.
Following the service, the Ladies Guild served the traditional lunch of wieners and baked beans and tempting baked goods.
We look forward to another performance next year.
This service was also in memory of Wynn Frost, who was a long time resident of Monte Creek and a regular attendee at St. Peter's. A number of family members were in attendance.
