Church Uses Drive-in Service as Outreach

A parking lot filled with cars at Westgate Assembly of God in Salem, Ore., is a good sign—even if no one is attending services inside.


The church has begun providing a drive-in service every Sunday morning in addition to its regular indoor service. Attendees receive free coffee and doughnuts and hear songs, testimonies and sermons without leaving their cars, trucks or vans.


Westgate says half of the drive-in attendees are not “church people,” but they want to know God is about.
