We are happy to announce that it is time to start planning for the First Western Days Event at the Lenawee County Fairgrounds. This event will be held during Fair week on Wednesday, July 27th. Since this is a community outreach event, our ministry team would like you to be well informed of our tentative schedule of events and of available opportunities for you and your congregation to use your God-given gifts and talents to promote the Kingdom of God and minister to others. You can expect the gospel message to be presented in a unique and mighty way at each grandstand event.
Wednesday, July 27 (Both events will occur at the Grandstands)
Round ‘Em Up Bible Camp: This is a unique opportunity for families to learn biblical principals in a truly “cowboy” way. Camp is currently scheduled to run from 12:00-4:00 pm and will include several learning stations, each complete with life lessons from the Word of God and hands-on activities. Plan to participate in this one-of-a-kind camp for all ages.
Ronnie Sowle Memorial Bull Riding: This is the Western Days highlight event and you will not want to miss it! Not only will you have the opportunity to see bull riding up close and personal, the evening will also include music by Tommy Brandt, 2014 Living Legend Award, ICGMA, 2014 Evangelist of the Year Award, 2013 Male Vocalist of the Year, along with many others and an appearance by Annie Schiller and Snickers. We are Blessed to have the Brandt Family participate in this event. Seeing this is well worth staying out late!
Ways that you can participate:
Prayer: Community prayer meetings will be scheduled soon. If you would like your church to be on the email list to receive notification of these meetings or if you would like to host a meeting at your church, please contact Jacques via email ASAP.
Evangelism: Above all things, Western Days is an outreach ministry designed to present the gospel of Jesus to a lost and dying world and to minister to the needs of the people as the Spirit leads. If this is an area of passion for you, we could use your help throughout the event. Contact Jacques for further information.
Camp Workers: We are looking for several volunteers to help with the Round ‘Em Up bible camp. Specific positions include set up, teachers and camp guides. We will be happy to train you so no need to worry about experience.
Information, Medical & Security: Those looking to minister in this capacity should be comfortable being on their feet and on the go. The primary responsibility will be to provide guests with information as to where to go for Bible camp. We do not anticipate any security or medical issues, however, volunteers should be on the lookout for potential problems and be prepared to assist guests as needed.
Flyers: We are looking for volunteers to put up posters throughout the Adrian area and to help locate areas to put up banners and distribute flyers around the area.
Banners: Banners to advertise your church or business are available for purchase. These will be displayed at various locations throughout the fairgrounds and will be returned to purchasers after the event. This will help to offset the cost of the event and put your name out in front of people during the main event!.
Set Up/Take Down: Perhaps you are more of a hands-on, manual labor type of person. No problem, we have a place for you. We could use committed volunteers to help with the set up and take down.
Donations: Western Days Ministries is a 501C3 corporation under the covering of World Ministry Fellowship. If you would like to make a financial donation to Western Days Ministries to help cover the cost of this year’s outreach events, please visit our webpage at https://www.westerndaysministries.org

Again we would like to thank you for sowing your time and resources into the Kingdom!
37 He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.
38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”
