Much can be accomplished with many hands. The volunteers at the Ranch are a vital piece in the picture that makes up the whole of Crystal Peaks. Our team of volunteers work hard to keep the Ranch beautiful, functional, and free to all. Opportunities to give in this way are available year-round. Click here for more information.

FELLOWSHIP - Everyone is Welcome

Throughout the year our Ranch Fellowship meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30-8:00 p.m. We gather in the barn during cold months and on the grassy hill during the summer. Together a meal is shared, followed by a time of worship and teaching from God’s Word. Our Fellowship community is a family-oriented group that’s comprised of people of all ages. We love this opportunity to get to know everyone better and grow stronger in the Lord. Our Ranch Fellowship is simple, direct, and relevant. 

4TH OF JULY PARADE - Everyone is Welcome

The 4th of July Parade is an event purposed to celebrate our troops, veterans, and this great nation that we are blessed to live in. When we are able, Crystal Peaks participates in the parade with a float, a select number of our horses and an enthusiastic group of Ranch staff, volunteers, kids, and families. We will need lots of help decorating the float, banners, trucks, manure carts and ourselves. Everyone is welcome to ride on the float!

HARVEST DAYS - Sign-Up Required

These events happen once or twice a year. They include an afternoon of learning the basics of candle making, crocheting, knitting, sewing, woodworking and/or other skill oriented crafts. Classes are an hour long and require an RSVP. Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

HOEDOWN - Everyone is WelcomeKatie Jacobsen Photography -130727-16.jpg

This annual event takes place in late July and is a summer highlight for the kids, families, visitors, staff, and volunteers of CPYR. Cow-folk costumes, choosing a fun Western name, and speaking with a silly drawl for the day are strongly encouraged! Come ready for games, prizes, line dancing, family "pig"tures, teaching from the Word and a big BBQ dinner. The ranch provides all the food and fun. No need to RSVP . . . y’all just come!


These two summer events are the perfect opportunity for kids to just be kids, and for adults to be kids too! We invite all to join the fun and games. Please be advised that the activities are often messy and wet, so wear your grubby clothes. No RSVP necessary . . . just show up!
