Becoming a Member

After worshiping with us and participating in the life of the church for a time, we hope you will become interested in full membership as an expression of your desire to continue deepening your relationship with this community and grow together in our relationships with God. If you are interested in membership you are invited to reach out to Pastor Allysa and schedule a time for a membership inquiry meeting.

At this meeting, we will spend some time getting to know one another by sharing responses to questions like: Did you grow up going to church, or not? What drew you to this church? etc., and naming any questions you hope to have answered in your decision-making process around membership. We will also spend time talking about the history of Wayside, how to get involved, what membership means and the history of broader United Church of Christ.

We hope that you will find here a place that feels like home where you can grow in God and love of neighbor. Click HERE for the New Member Form. Contact pastor@waysideucc.org if you would like to learn more about becoming a member and/or participating in our New Member Enquirer’s Class. There is additional information about membership in the Membership Guide.

Wayside is a member of the United Church of Christ (UCC) denomination. Learn more about the UCC by going HERE.
