HUNTSVILLE, Texas - Celebrating their commitment to serving God and the community, Pastor Tim Byrd and the congregation of Waverly Station Cowboy Fellowship are excited to announce a milestone worthy of more celebrating — the one-year anniversary of the church. “Spurring one another on towards God, His Word and Good Deeds” has been the mission of Waverly Station and the principle upon which the new ministry was founded and they're eager for the entire community to experience it firsthand at this event.
The Anniversary Celebration is slated for September 6, 2015 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Willis, with a Chuck Wagon Breakfast at 9:00 and a special concert by the popular gospel group, Branded, at 10:00. To culminate the service, the church will have a fish fry, free to the public.
From the first service, where the new church met at Gospel Lakes Ranch, the fellowship experienced rapid growth, ultimately reaching the point after only eight months, where more room was needed. “This is a great problem to have,” Pastor Byrd remarked, adding, “We couldn’t accommodate all the people looking for the type of ministry we are providing, so a move was necessary." He continued, "We were blessed to find a new temporary home at New Waverly High School.”
Waverly Station Cowboy Fellowship is committed to reaching the people in the communities in and near northern Montgomery and southern Walker counties, where Pastor Byrd feels God has called him to serve “folks who are in a somewhat off-the-beaten-path situation and outside the metro Conroe and Huntsville areas.” The pastor is quick to point out, “You don’t have to be a cowboy to find a place with us, but our folks do have a special love for the western culture.” The church averages more than 150 each Sunday, which is evidence of a need for such a ministry in that area.
Pastor Tim Byrd’s vision for Waverly Station includes a future arena ministry with weekly events where cowboys and fans of the Western way of life will enjoy rodeo-style activities, concerts and family-oriented recreation. Currently the church offers a Chuck Wagon Breakfast at 9:30 on the first Sunday of every month, where the food and “fixins” are all free. Church services are at 10:30 on Sunday mornings, and always include good gospel music with a bluegrass/Western influence, followed by Bible preaching.
