Please join us Sunday at 6pm for evening worship.

This Sunday, January 17, is Sanctity of Life Sunday. We’ll have baby bottles on the table in the back foyer for you to take home to collect spare change. You can bring the bottles back and leave them in the copy room the week of March 1. If you’d rather collect spare change in something else (a glass jar from home, ziplock bag, plastic container, etc.) that is fine! Plan to bring it to the church the week of March 1.

There is a need for a couple more individuals to help with Wayside's hot meal deliveries to Signal Mountain families (no-contact delivery). We prepare and deliver these meals every sixth Wednesday. Our next date is February 3. Anyone who might want to help with delivery should contact Marci Cooper or the church office.  Please see our weekly email regarding the need for volunteer coordinators for the gift bags that are delivered along with the meals.


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:
