Our Adult Ministry is an exciting way for the young and old alike to learn about Christ. Learn about the different groups available to you.



Join us on our journey in building a relationship with Jesus and the Bible. We nurture and support all Children of God as they grow in faith, grace and knowledge.



Our Youth engage God through His Word, service to His world and worship in community to become life long followers of Jesus Christ. 



From traditional hymns to contemporary Christian music, and from chimes to our Praise band there is something for everyone at Wayside!


Welcome to Wayside! Thanks for taking a moment to look over our ministry.  Ours is an intergenerational church with solid biblical preaching and teaching within the Reformed Christian tradition, a variety of mission outreach commitments and events, and more opportunities to connect for faith, friends and fellowship than you might expect for a midsized church. We offer two distinct worship experiences each Sunday morning, a traditional service with choir at 9:30 and a contemporary service with our Grace Notes band at 11:00. We are a full service church, offering programs and pastoral care for all ages on and off our beautiful eight acre campus. We hope you’ll check us out in person this weekend, or join us for our next community event!

What Is Going On?


Worship Services

Weekly worship in our comfortable all-purpose space is designed for children and adults, and is offered both in a more traditional style with hymns and special music by our choir, and in contemporary style with congregational singing and special music led by our Grace Notes worship band. Both services utilize PowerPoint text and images to support joyful singing and preaching  that challenges hearers to personal  faith, wholeness, and use of God-given gifts.

July 13

Popsicles in the Pavilion Monday, July 13, 11AM! 

Join us for a refreshing treat & visit with others! If necessary park near the pavilion & receive an individually packaged popsicle from Pastor Steve & Michelle Hess (in masks) - open to children youth, & adults for about ½ hour so staff can get back to the office. You are free to continue your visiting or make use of the facilities as needed. We will proceed if there’s only a chance or rain or sprinkles, but expected downpours will cancel this week’s event.

July 15

July 29

The second new opportunity for gathering is a Wednesday pavilion interactive worship experience that several people have responded to with interest, but with concern about the heat of the day. Therefore, if there are at least 6 people willing to meet, Pastor Steve will lead an informal, conversational, and prayerful 45-minute service on July 15 and July 29 at 6:30PM in the pavilion around the picnic tables. Please indicate your intention to join us before we commit, and contact Pastor Steve or the church office by Monday, July 6.
