Church Organist

Joy Varner brings us to a wonderful worship on Sunday mornings with her musical talent.  Every Sunday, Joy begins our worship with a wonderful piano prelude that sets the mood for our worship service.
She lives in Vienna and has three children; Jaron, Jonah, and Jensen. 
What a joy it is to have Joy help us leading worship each week here at Wayside!

Building Supervisor 

Donna Vincent is Wayside’s Building Supervisor and has been with us for almost a decade and is always willing and ready to help wherever and whenever she is needed. She even puts up with Pastor Jeremy’s nonsense and shenanigans.
If you can’t find Donna at home, then she and Tim are probably riding their horses in the countryside…or riding their motorcycles!
