WAYSIDE CHRISTIAN CHURCH was founded in 2004 in the home of our pastor, Dr. John M. Ward. From its beginning, the church mission statement was, "To Know Christ More... And To Make Him Known To Others." Since 2004, the church has influenced its surrounding community by bringing souls to know Christ, feeding the community, and providing clothes on those in need. Pastor John Ward reminds all church members that "The church should not only preach Christ, it should also show Christ." Today WAYSIDE CHRISTIAN CHURCH is an integral part of its community and its facilities are used to host other community nonprofits such as the American Cancer Society, as well as many fraternities and sororities. The church also sponsors speakers to teach single mothers and pregnant women, youth intervention activities, and many other community minded activities. Most of these events are absolutely free to the community. Fall harvest is when many farmers harvest their crop. It is a time to collect many fruits and vegetables. It is also a time of celebration. The WAYSIDE FALL HARVEST DRIVE is a way of recovering or harvesting some of the cost to help the church continue to reach out and show Christ to the community. The Harvest time begins in October and last through December. Much of the funds used by the church for community outreach and invovlement throughout the following year is gathered or harvest during the Fall HARVEST DRIVE.
