Celebrate “It’s Christmas” With Pizza Ranch & Mercy Me!
#ItsChristmas #FlyBy

Once again Pizza Ranch is putting on their angel wings and being an amazing member of society. With Mercy Me helping out with their love to the community, by coming out with the “It’s Christmas” CD, it makes it even more of a blessing!

The songs on this CD are perfect for any family. Some often worry about giving a gift like this to someone who doesn’t really understand “Christianity”, however, these tunes are ones that don’t focus on a teaching, as much as just letting everyone come together in singing to celebrate the holy day.

It always makes me shake my head at those that don’t like the worship style songs during Christmas. Ummm…what exactly do you think Christmas is, anyway? Our world is really backwards right now, and having a company like Pizza Ranch, and the members of Mercy Me, trying to shine a light on a dark world and just make the time spent together fun and enjoyable, really makes me smile!!

All of the songs on this CD are amazing!! I’m not one who usually likes to sing (since my dog usually ends up singing with me 😕 ), but this CD had a lot of music that was easy to get involved in and sing along. Bart is an amazing singer, and his band is so talented that you just get caught up in the joy of the sound.

This would be a perfect gift to someone who either loves the band Mercy Me, or just loves Christmas music. Let’s all join together and help Pizza Ranch to make a difference in other people’s lives!

About Pizza Ranch:
ranchIn the heart of every cowboy lies a dream. Adrie Groeneweg had one that started in Hull, Iowa, in 1981 when he was just 19 years old. It was simple. Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza? With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie’s mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born. The residents of Hull flocked to the young restaurant for made-from-scratch sauce and dough and other fresh ingredients. As word spread, Pizza Ranch grew. The dream that began in the heart of a young man now extends to thirteen states.

We see it as our mission to give every guest a legendary experience, but it’s about more than that. Our purpose is ultimately glorifying God by positively impacting the world. It’s part of the reason we’ve put together this album. It’s been quite a trail ride. Thanks for being a part of it.

Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!
-Psalm 1oo:2


ranchThis album has a very special meaning for Pizza Ranch. Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album. Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project. As such, we call this our miracle album, Living Hope.

I love the songs and feel that they will deeply minister to many people. I personally hope that you will enjoy the music, reflect on the words, shed some tears, sing loudly along with the artists and make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Let it move you into a closer relationship with our Lord and Savior.

A big thank you to both the artists and labels for contributing new hope inspired songs. You all have given Hope to so many through your talents and we are blessed to have the opportunity with you to bring glory to our God.

-Adrie Groeneweg
President & CEO of Pizza Ranch Inc.

Of course, we could always help more. But, we do try to support a local homeless ministry, faith-based crisis pregnancy center, and volunteer opportunities through our church.
