Helping Others

Joining Ecumenically with Other Faith Communities

In keeping with the themes of unity and extravagant welcome, Wayside welcomes people of a variety of faith practices, and collaborates with other faith communities in our area to dialogue and address common concerns.


We believe our responsibility as Christians includes outreach to those in need, with food, shelter, health care, advocacy and response to disaster in our area, our nation, and around the world.

In the United Church of Christ, we affirm that, although the congregation is the fundamental unit of mission, mission is not just local. We are connected to one another, across boundaries of neighborhood, class, race, and national border.

The needs are overwhelming. We can’t do everything, but we can do something. Wayside is associated through financial donations and through volunteer labor with the organizations listed here.  In these many ways, we reach out to help those in need, wherever they may be.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!
