Little Home Church by the Wayside


The  LHC 150th Anniversary Committee, chaired by Wayne residents and long-time church members Dave and Kathryn Karwowski, is working to plan a series of special events, fun activities and beautiful ways to commemorate this very important milestone in the life and history of Little Home Church by the Wayside.

We invite all our current and former congregation members, neighbors, friends, family and the wider Wayne community to be a part of this celebration. Welcome home to all...!

Grateful for the Past — Joyful for the Present — Embracing the Future

"And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shall raise up the foundations of many great generations; and thou shall be called, the repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in.”    

Isaiah 58:12

We look back...and we look forward!

In celebration of the past 150 years and in preparation for the next 150, our church has undertaken 'Joyfully' a major restoration and renovation of the church sanctuary and adjoining fellowship hall and offices. We continue our mission-focused goals and our commitment to the surrounding community, by rebuilding a part of the church's property to become the Wayne Community House. LEARN MORE
