JENA – Open Gate Western Heritage Church is to host a wilderness worship, camp out and trail ride Friday-Saturday, Sept. 28-29.
All people connected with cowboy churches and ministries in Louisiana are invited to attend, Pastor Mark Stagg recently announced.
After school on Friday, Sept. 28, folks will be driving to the 3,000-acre Wolf Creek Hunt Club campground near Jena, on Hwy 84 northwest of Alexandria. That evening a Dutch oven cook-off between churches is to take place.
“We’ll have music and worship under the stars,” Stagg said. “Remember, this is primitive camping: Bring your bedroll.”
Saturday will be a trail ride through the piney woods. People without horses can fish or just relax with other Cowboy Christians, the pastor said.
“A river that runs through has some of the most unusual rock formations in the state,” Stagg said. “We’ll be stopping there on the trail ride, or people can walk to it.”
