The Wayside Chapel stands on the highest point of The Center’s grounds. It is the underlying base of all The Center’s programs.

We are an interfaith organization, and we recognize the importance of God in all that we do.

Religious programming centers around Sunday afternoon Vespers each week. In addition there are religious celebrations for baptisms, memorial services, and hundreds of weddings.

We lead many special services associated with the Christian holidays. The Easter Sunrise Service, the Pilgrimage to the Manger (held at our farm), Christmas Eve by candlelight, and Advent Services are some that have a consistent following of people who look forward to the spiritual enrichment they draw from these special occasions.

The whole atmosphere at the Wayside Chapel is that of peace and worship. It is open for worship services, meditation and prayer, and to those who come in an hour of need seeking an answer to their questions.

For any questions about Vespers, The Wayside Chapel and related matters please email Reverend Christine Hopkins.
