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 currently offer a combined traditional and contemporary service with our Grace Notes band each Sunday morning at 10:00am. 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!

Waysiders consistently assist the Hempfileld Area Food Pantry with help and donations.  Diane Gerlach, Volunteer Coordinator for the Pantry says, “The Pantry served 189 children & 248 adults in May. Many families come to the pantry every week…this gives a grand total of 1,309 people served for the month May. Forty-nine volunteers gave 472 hours for the month! Many thanks for your continuing support to the pantry to help families in the Hempfield area struggling to feed their families !!! God Bless you!”


Requested items for the month of July: cereal, canned carrots, green beans, & mixed vegetables, canned potatoes, Ramon noodles, Penna pasta, Large peanut butter, Large jelly (no glass containers)


Watch for final totals from Wayside’s 10th annual Waystock! The “Businesses on Battery” food drive collected over 750 pounds of food for the Pantry. Once all expenses & receipts have been calculated, Wayside plans to present a check to the Pantry for over $3,000,  along with several gift cards donated by local grocery stores. Thank you all!

August 27

Wayside has held a number of fundraisers over the years for special mission or building projects around the church, which have helped to fund youth mission trips or the denominational Youth Triennium, and to support our own members and seminary interns in their 
pursuit of professional development.  
Our current intern from Lancaster Theological Seminary, Mr. Jim Catron, is serving a summer intensive with Wayside.


When it was announced by the PCUSA this spring that the Youth Triennium (held every three years in the summer) was being canceled related to lingering Covid concerns, Pastor Steve asked the Christian Formation Committee if the Spaghetti Fund Raiser might be repurposed to help our seminary intern with tuition expenses. Lancaster Theological Seminary will match whatever we can raise to reduce costs for the designated student. They agreed.


While logistics are under consideration, please hold the date of Saturday August 27. If you can help with the meal, please contact Pastor Steve. Desserts will likely be requested, and financial donations above and beyond the meal cost will gladly be received and applied to the tuition cause.
