Children's Church


Risen Ranch Cowboy Church believes our children are our greatest asset and represent the future of the church. The investment we make into their lives is very important to us. We are striving to minister to them effectively on their level and with their needs foremost, in an atmosphere of fun and love. It is our honor to share the love of Christ with them, see them grow in love and knowledge and see His joy, love and enthusiasm on their faces and in their hearts. We provide Children's church during Sunday morning service and also on Wednesday night bible study.

Women's Ministry


Being involved in Women's Ministry will give you the chance to connect to God through His Word and to each other through shared hearts, laughter and tears. God created us to live life in relationship - to Him and to each other. A friend brings out your very best by encouraging you, challenging you and comforting when you need it most. Women's Ministry is a place where you are free to be yourself as you experience the miracle of God's transforming love.
