Waitsburg Christian Church adds a Saturday evening service
January 23, 2020
A big banner hanging in front of the Waitsburg Christian Church’s building on Main Street announced the news, the congregation is adding a Saturday, 6 p.m. evening service. Pastor Matt Wyatt responded with the following when asked what prompted the new service time.
"There were a couple things that spurred a step of faith to add a second service. The first one was the amount we are growing on Sunday. Each week we have new families and new faces come to church and we realized that Sunday morning was getting pretty full in our sanctuary.
We wanted another option and opportunity to reach the people in our communities. There were many times that I heard that the reason they couldn’t attend Sunday was because of work, sports, family events, etc. This moved my heart to want to give an opportunity for others to be able to attend.
Our first Saturday service was amazing. We had 60 people which is an incredible start. The thing that touched my heart the most is that a majority of those who attended aren’t regular attenders of the church. Reaching just one more has been something that is first and foremost in my heart.
I realize that this hasn’t been done in our church or community before, and I know it may be uncomfortable for some. But we have been called to reach people where they are in life, and if a Saturday night service can touch one more life, we are overwhelmed with joy to open our doors."
Waitsburg Christian Church is located at 604 Main Street in Waitsburg. The church also offers a service at 10 a.m. on Sunday, child care and children’s programs are available at both services. Best of luck to Senior Pastor Wyatt on this new initiative!
