Our intimate chapel facility comfortably seats up to 72 guests and is open year-round.

The staff at The Wayside Chapel includes clergy, as well as an organist, soloist and hostess, to enhance the beauty and spirituality of your special day and create a ceremony that is uniquely your own. Candlelight services are available during Advent, and our facilities include ample parking.

Our service does not end when you say I do. We offer couples the opportunity to return to The Wayside Chapel to partake in a moving anniversary celebration to renew their vows.

In addition, The Reverend Dr. Gerald Steenken is available to serve couples as a pastoral counselor. Reverend Gerald Steenken obtained his Doctorate of Ministry from the University of Chicago. He provides experienced assistance to couples in developing communication and conflict resolution skills.
