Formed in 1923 as an outreach of the former Methodist Episcopal Church to the growing area of Vitrolite ( Vienna ) by the late Rev. Dr. John Wolfe, Wayside United Methodist Church has been central to community life from its inception. While the community has changed greatly around it over the years, Wayside United Methodist Church has continued to faithfully engage its mission of witness and discipleship. Today, Wayside United Methodist Church continues to be on a journey as a community of faith toward fulfilling God's mission to the world, which we understand to be to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and to cultivate those disciples in Christian faith and practice continues to be on the forefront of our churches ministries and initiatives. Our prayer is that God may continue to find us faithful in this task and that through our congregational life, nurture, worship, ministry, and witness, we may glorify God to the end that God's Kingdom may come upon the earth even as it is in Heaven.
