Diehard Cow­boys fan and pas­tor Michelle Fredericks said the con­gre­ga­tion would in­stead pray for a grand fi­nal win at the morn­ing ses­sion.

“We were all very ex­cited with the fact the Cow­boys fought their way through and de­cided we def­i­nitely want to cre­ate op­por­tu­nity for church mem­bers to watch it and get be­hind the boys,” she said.

“This is an­other op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a com­mu­nity around some­thing we love and that’s the Cow­boys.”

Cal­vary Chris­tian Church meets in many lo­ca­tions across Queens­land, such as Emer­ald, Gold Coast, Townsville and Yep­poon.

The Cairns branch has 750 mem­bers meet­ing at the Edge Hill State School for 90-minute ser­vices at 9am and 6pm.

Ms Fredericks said the service was rarely can­celled, but ac­knowl­edged the spe­cial oc­ca­sion. “Only if there is a cy­clone and we are warned not to drive,” she said.

“Un­less there is a cy­clone or the Cow­boys are in the grand fi­nal – church goes on.”
