    When the time came to depart, rather than riding their horses off into the sunset, Pastor Russell Fletcher and his wife Diane rode off on a four-wheeler toward the church picnic.

    For six years, the church has been hosting the service on Evergreen Rodeo weekend in hopes of attracting newcomers, out-of-towners and other visitors.
