'Mechanical bull' rides into Pine Island Community Church

December 23, 2013
Pine Island Eagle

Pastor Heidi Grueser of the Pine Island Community Church in St. James City asked the congregation a few months ago to bring in "props" and she would incorporate them into the Sunday Worship Service. The "props" starting pouring in - a glass of water half full, a bottle of wedding wine from Israel, a wooden front door and a half dozen lemons to name a few. Last week Johnnie Glisson one of the parishioners brought in his prop. A "Gilley Mechanical Bull." They were seen and popular in the "Urban Cowboy" movie starring John Travolta in 1980. True to Pastor Heidi's word, she took the bull by the horns and climbed on like Tim McGraw riding Fu Manchu. The day was extra special when the congregation was asked to dress country/western style and bring with them mild or hot chili for dinner after the service. It was a fun filled Texas kind of day in Southwest Florida at the Pine Island Community Church. Pastor Heidi's sermon and service sitting on "Gilley's Mechanical Bull" can be seen at
