Inspirational gospel music will mix with the aroma of fresh pancakes Sunday, June 30 at the annual Cowboy Church Service.

The service at the main grandstand on the Stampede Grounds begins at 8 a.m. Breakfast is served until 11 a.m.

Entertainment will be provided by central Alberta bands Gospel 792 and The NewSong Band.

Gospel 792 hails from the Crestomere area. Their common thread is Meadowbrook church on Secondary Highway 792 near Gull Lake, thus, the name Gospel 792.

While representing Meadowbrook Church, they are also an independent group ministering where the Lord calls them. They have been together as Gospel 792 for about eight years. In the past their ministry has found them taking cowboy church to rodeos and church functions throughout Alberta as well as ministry in music at seniors’ homes and for different church groups at camp picnics, banquets, fundraisers and jamborees.

They love to go wherever God calls them to sing.

The NewSong Band from Red Deer has developed its own musical style that could be described as a melodic combination of traditional, southern gospel and ’50s and ’60s classic rock/country. They strive to present an overall concert agenda that brings joy, comfort and entertainment to audiences of all ages.
