Be the Church

Throughout the Bible, particularly in the book of Acts, we are reminded to “be the church.” Wayside UCC embraces the ideas of being welcoming and affirming, and has made it a mission to embody all of the following points in its journey to “Be the Church”:

  • Protect the environment
  • Care for the poor
  • Embrace diversity
  • Reject racism
  • Forgive often
  • Love God
  • Fight for the powerless
  • Share earthly and spiritual resources
  • Enjoy this life

These points should remind us and make us think: How is God is still calling us to be the church, now in ways that meet the challenges of the 21st century?

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