WELCOME TO WAYSIDE
“I will show love to those who were called unloved and, to those who were called ‘not-my-people’, I will say ‘you are my people’ and they will answer, ‘you are our God’.” (Hosea 2:23)
Wayside Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) is a place where the mind is nourished as well as the spirit, and where we affirm the dignity and worth of every person. As we are all created in the image of God, we believe discrimination is incompatible with Christ’s Gospel of unconditional love. While we celebrate our Presbyterian identity, we acknowledge that we are not alone on the path to understanding God. We invite conversations that move us to seek a deeper understanding of life in the Spirit.

Here is her first post:
"Hi, I’m Emma Haas! In May 2015, I will graduate from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio with B.A. in Psychology and Spanish. Raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, I have grown up in the Presbyterian Church. I am so thankful for the support I have received throughout the last 18 years from my church family at Wayside Presbyterian Church. During my time at Wayside, I was closely involved in youth group, choir, and mission work. These experiences have made me passionate about service and working with youth.
"Throughout college, I have been very involved in my sorority, Delta Gamma, worked as a resident assistant, and volunteered my time at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospitals and the Cleveland Sight Center. During the summers, I enjoyed working as a therapeutic aide at a summer camp for children with autism and as a nanny. My hobbies include reading, eating, and exploring new places.
"This next year will be full of excitement, challenges, and change and I cannot wait for it to begin. I look forward to experiencing life in a new country and I am excited to see what God has in store for me! I would love your support, whether through prayer, financially, and/or by following my blog. "
