Southeast Christian Church is adding a third service Sunday to its new Oldham County satellite campus after ushering in standing-room-only crowds for its two opening day services, according to campus pastor Kurt Sauder. The new services will be at 9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and noon. The Jan. 16 opening day of Southeast's second satellite campus brought more than 2,700 people -- more than twice what Dave Stone, the senior pastor, said he had anticipated. The Oldham campus is in a refurbished former Winn-Dixie building at 6201 Crestwood Station, off Kentucky route146. The campus's worship center seats 750 people, and there is space for children on both floors of the building. Sauder said both the 9 and 11 a.m. services were full, though a few hundred more people attended the later service. Sauder said the church had been praying and planning for the opening, and Stone had expected around 1,200 people to attend.
Soft openings had brought around 800 people. For more information see this 1/26/11 article in a local paper
The church's first satellite, which they call a regional, campus, opened Easter 2009 in Jeffersonville, Indiana, which is a suburb of Louisville just across the state line. It seats 1,300.
