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.

HEALTH AND WHOLENESS WALKING GROUP
The Health and Wholeness Committee is offering our second annual Summer Walking Group, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8:00 AM. Walkers of any age or fitness level are invited to join us for a peaceful way to exercise and connect with others. Two walking options are available: a level, shorter path or a path that is more challenging with a little incline. Dogs on leashes and children are welcome, too!
Walking is one of the best forms of exercise available to us but it can also offer us an opportunity for meditation. Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh said: "We frequently walk with the sole purpose of getting from one place to the next. But where are we in between? With every step, we can feel the miracle of walking on solid ground. We can arrive in the present moment with every step." We hope you can join us!
STRONGER SENIORS EXCERISE CLASS
The 45 minute Stronger Seniors chair exercise program addresses and strengthens all the muscles in your body. Join us on Thursday mornings from 9:00 AM to 9:45 AM in Room 18.
