We are in the process of forming a new small group! The proposed starting date is Tuesday, November 9. Small groups are a wonderful way to experience the gospel community within the body of Christ here at Wayside. If you are interested in being part of a new group, please let Ken Harmon know and he will connect you.
Choices (the crisis pregnancy center we help to support) has an immediate need for infant car seats and a few other items. If you’d like to purchase something to help, please go here.
On October 12 at 7pm, join our virtual missions prayer time. If you want to join the meeting, please contact Jerry Best so he can forward you the link and prayer request updates from our mission family. Copies of the prayer updates are on the table in the back foyer. This is a recurring meeting on the second Tuesday of each month.

Please bring a main dish for your family and a side or dessert to share. Kids are welcome to dress in festive reformation era attire if they would like!
Attention Wayside ladies: mark your calendars for Monday, November 1 at 7pm for our next women’s Bible study evening. We will share a time of food, fellowship, and study. On that night, we will be discussing Ephesians 5:22 - 6:9, and we will look at a few questions from “Week 9” of our book.
Pastor Brian will teach a Wayside 101 Class November 12-13 at the church. If you are interested in joining Wayside, or in just learning more about what we believe, please come! The class will begin with supper and a session Friday night (6-8:30pm), and the Saturday session will be from 9-11:30am. Pastor Chuck will also teach a class for children who are ready to join the church. They will meet on Saturday, November 13 from 9-11:30am. Childcare is available for younger children. Please email Mary Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign yourself and/or your family up for the class, and let her know if you will need childcare (and names and ages of your children).
We will participate in Samaritan’s Purse Ministry’s “Operation Christmas Child” again this year. This is an opportunity to help children in need around the world by preparing shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies (no food/candy/gum, please!). Boxes and the information you need are in the copy/choir room. The boxes are due November 14.
Ladies, please save the date! Thursday, December 9 is the annual Women’s Christmas party at the home of Janet Best. More details to come when our advent season arrives! Also, put March 11-12, 2022 on your calendar for the Wayside Women’s Conference. Author and speaker Megan Hill will be joining us that weekend, teaching us from God’s Word. More information will be posted as conference time draws nearer.
