In 1917, a small group of believers started a Sunday Bible School class on Signal Mountain. Through the faithful planting and watering of the gospel, God grew this small group into a church that formed Wayside Presbyterian Church. This small group banded together for the sake of the gospel to remain committed to the work of God. Through sacrifices of time, resources, and even stone from members’ property, the current sanctuary opened for worship in 1947. In the decades that followed, Wayside continued by God’s grace steadfast in its mission of watering the seed of the gospel, trusting God to give the increase. God has answered the prayers of previous generations and given increase in these present days. Over the last 10 years God has directed many families to Wayside Presbyterian Church with approximately 79% growth. Our mission is to continue to steward God’s flock faithfully and as one body. Currently, we are not able to worship together in one service or in one space. It is our goal to continue the vision and mission that our Wayside forefathers and mothers left us by providing a legacy for generations to come so that they can worship God and water the gospel together in faith, hope, and love.

Wayside's Mission

Wayside Presbyterian church strives to be biblical in worship, preaching, teaching and ministry.  We strive to be confessional, in that we share a common confession of faith. And we strive to be missional, taking the good news of Jesus Christ to Signal Mountain, to Chattanooga, and to the ends of the earth.
