Over the past 90+ years God has done amazing things in the lives of people who have been part of His church here in Waymart. The heritage of teaching the gospel and loving people continues today as it did in the past. We believe that you may want to have part in helping us reach others with the gospel for many years to come.
We have seen God do some incredible things. Our congregation has grown to an attendance of approximately 200 on Sundays, and we are seeing many new people every week. Our vibrant youth ministry is an example of the impact God is allowing us to have in our community. Most of all, we have been blessed with a beautiful spirit of unity and love as together we rejoice in the redemptive work God is doing in our lives and church.
Recently, the former Spojnia Manor Assisted Living Facility in Waymart has been made available to us by a dear Christian couple. Since we have long ago outgrown our present 5,000 square-foot facility, this new 22,000 square-foot building is a tremendous opportunity. We are especially excited about how this building can be used for outreach to the people in Waymart and our surrounding communities.
During the past few years, the Spojnia building has fallen into disrepair due to a faulty roof. To repair the damage, as well as renovate and retrofit the building so that it can be used as an effective ministry facility, will cost around $750,000. We are asking God to provide this over the next six months so that we can open wide the doors for our Christmas services. We had four Christmas Eve services last year with 450 people attending them.
I am asking you to take some time to view the video above that shows some glimpses of how God has been working. (I know that it is long, but I believe you will be blessed by watching all of it.)
We are using the phrase ONE MORE ME to help communicate what we understand to be God’s next step for The Waymart Church. ONE MORE ME is our way of reminding ourselves of how grateful we are to God for our relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. We are declaring, “God, I can't imagine my life without you. Please reach one more person like me - through me!”
Would you pray for us as we embark upon this amazing journey? We would appreciate so much your support in this way. If you believe that God is leading you to contribute financially to this project, your gift will be carefully used to help spread the Gospel in our area of Northeast Pennsylvania.
