Waldeck is in Ledbetter, Texas, near Lutherhill. Retired Pastor Willie Rotter, who was baptized and confirmed at St. John’s Rutersville, pastors this small, but vivacious group, when he’s not hunting or teaching gun safety.

About 50 in worship (up from 25 a few years ago). 5 children at the Children’s sermon. Pastor Rotter passed out balloons and noisemakers, and talked about the party the angels throw when the lost are found.

About 1/4 of our congregations are 50 or less in worship. In the first century house-church era, 50 would have been a big church.
