Former Wayne Hills United Methodist Church is now 'Embrace Waynesboro' - a community center! One of the initiatives and outreach of this up and coming center is a community garden. We are people who believe that everyone has a place at God’s table, that grace is best shared face to face, and that love is a verb demanding our action. To that end, we view the church building from which we serve as a tool box, one provided in order to equip ourselves and our community to love well. The people of Embrace are committed to wise use of all of our resources so that the message of grace and peace is spread throughout our city.
