As we build on the foundation that our Preschool ministry has established,
The goal of Wayside Baptist Church Children's Ministries for 1st through 5th grade is to be an example of God's love through biblical teaching, encouragement and love to all children and their families who attend Wayside Baptist Church for any reason, in every program, every day of the week... with the hope of leading them to salvation and an abundant life that can only be achieved through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our mission is to give children a foundation of Truth that will stay with them their entire lives.
We host MANY programs and special events all year.
Kidz Bible Zone--Sundays - runs in conjunction with Adult Bible Fellowship Groups and Worship
Kidz Wednesdays--Wednesday nights
Wayside Kidz Camp --Teacher Work Days, Summer, and school breaks throughout the year.
Vacation Bible School --FREE! The first week of every Summer.
Sunday morning children’s programs are called the Kidz Bible Zone and our elementary children grades 1-5 are Bible Fanz
Kidz Bible Zone has two key elements. The first, Kidz Bible Groupz, is where the children in age-graded groups meet for fun, Bible-centered learning and fellowship. These groups should be a place where kids connect with other kids and adults and grow spiritually together. This element meets every Sunday at 9am and 11:30am all year and is provided for children through 5th grade.
The second element is Kidz Worship which is kid-style worship for Bible Friendz (3K-Kindergarten) and Bible Fanz (1st-5th grades). They meet at 10:15am.
Location: Easiest entrance is to come in through the Preschool entrance on the Northwest end of the building. The children’s programs are located on the 2nd floor of the center wing of the education building. You will know when you are in the “Kidz Bible Zone” by the big sign in our courtyard.
If you have specific questions about our children's ministry schedule please e-mail our Director of Preschool and Children's Ministries, Leigh Byers.
Throughout the year there are a variety of events that are directed to sharing the Good News with children and families in a fun and creative setting. These events include:
