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.
WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US FOR
OUR FALL CONVOCATION 2015

Dear Friends in Christ at Wayside,
Thank you for a warm and wonderful welcome October 1-4. Anita and I felt the kind and open arms of your Christian fellowship surrounding us as we met you and worshiped with you. I celebrate the joy of confirming God’s call to ministry together and look forward with joyful hope to all that Christ will do in and through us. Wayside Church is in my thoughts and prayers as I look forward to December 1.
May God’s grace and peace be with you!
