Ministries of Mercy

Our deacons (Acts 6:1-6; 1 Tim. 3:8-13) lead Wayside in areas of service to our own household of faith (Gal. 6:10) and to those within our community. We believe that, as the gospel of Jesus Christ so transforms us, we will naturally and necessarily seek to love and serve others.


This is accomplished through a number of ways at Wayside:

  • Benevolence to help those in financial need
  • Assisting with counseling services
  • Making meals and taking them to the poor
  • Serving at the Signal Mountain clothes closet
  • Visiting the lonely in their homes and at the senior care facility on Signal Mountain
  • Calling, visiting, and serving widows
  • Promoting justice, reconciliation, and impartiality
  • Promoting adoption through Choices Chattanooga and promoting other avenues to help the orphan
