Solid church with a history of being grounded in scripture and missions. The long and godly legacy (30+ years) of Pastor Troxel is now being followed by Pastor Poupart with the same Biblical grounding and relevant applicability to every day life. Every church goes through cycles, and there was kind of a "down" period after Pastor Troxel's retirement, but Wayside now seems to be in a time of spiritual and energy growth. There are many good churches in San Antonio, but Wayside fits our family well.
After trying out countless churches in San Antonio, this is the one. The people are genuinely friendly and real. They share their ups and downs and support each other. Small groups meet for dinners, house gatherings, and time to know one another. The teaching comes straight from the Bible, section by section, not just words picked out here and there combined with one person's spin. Many in the congregation have spent their lives studying, even obtaining Bible degrees, in order to be more useful in the church and to teach others. Many opportunities here for community work and missions.
This church is wonderful -- the people are welcoming and the preaching/teaching is Biblically based and phenomenal. When I got home, I went on their site to learn more about the church, their beliefs, opportunities for involvement, etc, and found the website easy to navigate and very informative.
I came to San Antonio from Colorado in 2001 and spent several months visiting churches in the area. I found a home at Wayside on my first visit. The people were exceptionally welcoming, and the worship and teaching were solid.
I respect Wayside for taking stands on cultural issues that are clearly outlined in the Bible. Many churches in this day and age tend to shy away from controversial topics. Wayside will cover these topics, but will do so with sensitivity and grace.
