The Gateway to Fremont County

Cowboy Church at the Crossroads has been chosen for July 2015 Business of the Month. 

The Cowboy Church at Crossroads is a Bible based non-denominational church, serving the communities in Eastern Fremont County. It began when Pastor Randy Pfaff followed his calling & asked the folks at the Crossroads Arena if he could have church there in January 2010. The first service was comprised of 6 people. Services were held there until 2012, at which time the Lord prompted the church to move to the Florence High School, where services were held until just this July. It was just relocated to the Penrose Community Center.

The church centers it's missions exclusively to this area, reaching out to the Vet's Home & youth in the area, including prayer around the flag pole at Florence High School & aiding & supporting the local Fellowship of Christian Huskies.

Throughout the summer CCC hosts "Tuesdays in the Park" at Pioneer Park in Florence with a goal of providing wholesome Christian fellowship, prayer, & patriotism.

Evenings consist of a potluck with meat, hot off the grill, furnished by CCC, as well as the fixin's. Folks bring a side dish to share. That is followed by top notch entertainment, as well as prayer, a short devotional, & fellowship.

All are welcome to join in church services at 9 am, Sundays at the Community Center. Video, Coffee, & Donuts at 8:30 am. There are also a variety of Bible studies throughout the week.

Church offices are at 646 3rd Street in Penrose.
