Mission and Welcome Statements

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.


On our spiritual journey, we strive to be an open-hearted, open-minded, open-doored community of believers in Jesus Christ who have joined together in love and hope. 

Guided by the Holy Spirit, we gather to worship God, explore our faith, nurture fellowship,
and serve as God’s hands, feet and voice in mission.
