I put this out about a week ago but it seems to have disappeared! Please read and send me your thoughts:
I have a question for ICCN leadership and the member/pastors: Cowboy churches don't usually make a big fuss over taking an offering each week. Historically there is a box or bucket or hat in the back for anyone that would like to to drop their tithe or offering in. I attended a new Hispanic Church on Saturday night and their offering time was a time of celebration! No offering was too small but most everyone participated. Should we at Cowboy Church reconsider our "tradition"?
Howdy: I would venture to say NO based on most people who join us tell me they left their church because they were tired of being beat up in their wallets. I find the way we do it in COWBOY CHURCh works well and usually when we do a love offering for a guest we recieve the same and MORE. I believe the Cowboy Church way works best./Pastor E Patrick Anthony
