Listen for the sound of the cowbell -- it means church is beginning.

That would be at the Northwoods Harvest Barn, also known as the Cowboy Church.


Located along Highway 34 about 15 miles east of Detroit Lakes, the Cowboy Church opened for services four years ago this June.

Walking into the building, anyone can see where the cowboy theme comes from, but Pastor Brian Erickson assures, it's not just a church for cowboys.
