Good Samaritan Center
Direct Phone Number: 304.865.0429
The Good Samaritan Center (GSC) is housed by Wayside UMC.
The GSC is a collaborative food pantry and assistance ministry of 15+ area churches. The GSC is open on Monday and Wednesday from 1-3 pm.
Families in need of assistance need only show proof of residence and income.
Wayside has a very active Youth group. Our Youth group believes every student deserves a safe, comfortable place to grow in their faith.
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
