ANNOUNCEMENTS


Join us Sunday evening for our regular evening worship at 6pm.


We will have officer nominations from August 9–23. There are nomination forms on the back table of the sanctuary as well as here, which you may download, print, and mail to the church. If you have any questions, please call or email Pastor Brian. Our current slate of officer candidates—Ken Harmon (elder), Nate Henderson (elder), and Michael Moore (deacon)—have finished their officer training course and their written exams! They will have their session interviews on August 18th and then, if all goes well, recommended to the congregation for approval. We'll send out more information at that time. Please pray for our current candidates and those whom God might raise up here at Wayside in the future!


Pastor Brian and Dr. Joel Beeke's new co-authored book, None Else: 31 Meditations on God's Character and Attributes, is now available on the book table for $5! The book provides a month's worth of meditations to help you grow in both your knowledge of and love for God.

***************************************************************************************************************


We have two morning worship services (9:00am & 10:45am), and an evening service (6:00pm). The two morning services have the same order of worship. We encourage attendance for the 9:00am service to more evenly distribute attendance numbers. For worship, we sit in every other row of pews (please do not use the pews designated for the other worship service); the Sunday School/overflow and Fellowship Hall areas are also available.


The 10:45am and 6:00pm service are livestreamed. We are encouraging those with weaker immune systems, the elderly, and those who have traveled to areas with high infection rates to take extra precautions, and use the livestream options. Obviously, if you are showing any symptoms of illness, or have been in contact with anybody who is sick, please use the livestream option. 


We are refraining from Sunday school classes, nursery, childcare, children/youth events, "meet & greet" time, coffee, and passing the offering plates until further notice.


Health: Our janitor is performing additional cleaning procedures according to recommended guidelines.


Under the current circumstances, with the increasing number of COVID-19 infections in our area and the Hamilton County mandate - the Session strongly encourages that face coverings be worn at all worship services and that social distancing guidelines be observed. The members of the Session will seek to lead by example. Our intention is to make a limited number of masks available.


Thank you for praying for us as we desire to wisely and faithfully navigate this issue and seek the well-being of our beloved congregation. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to one of the ruling elders listed below:
