Welcome to Wayside!

Welcome to Wayside! May you encounter the presence of God in this place and discover what it is to be unconditionally loved. No matter your age, gender, sexuality, race, political affiliation, religious background, job, marital status, disabilities, belief in God, or [fill in the blank]…you are welcome here!

We are a church made up of people from many different backgrounds with many different life experiences. Some have described us as a place for spiritual refugees. You will find believers and doubters worshipping together. We are all family and guided by the Holy Spirit, we do our best to live out God’s call to love one another.

What connects us is our belief that God loves each of us and invites us into God’s work to make our communities a more peaceful and just place. What grounds us are the Holy Scriptures, especially the teachings of Jesus. What inspires us are the traditions of the past, contemporary voices of inclusion, and visionaries for a more just future. May you discover not just a place to worship but a second home. We are glad you are here!
