Wayside’s Food Pantry

We are blessed to have a way to help a big issue: food and grocery insecurity. If are in need of food or toiletries, please feel free to check our food pantry. It is located in our parking lot, adjacent to our building. Check back often, as the pantry is supplied on a regular basis.

If you are able, please consider adding non-perishable food items and toiletries.

Items that go the fastest, and are always needed, are:

  • Cereal
  • Canned chicken/beef noodle soups*
  • Canned stews*
  • Canned fruit* or fruit cups
  • Bars of soap
  • Feminine hygiene products

*Pull-tab or “Pop-top” cans are preferred

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!
