wayside kids: Birth - 5th Grade

The Wayside Kids team believes it is important to build a foundation of faith in the kids God brings our way. We purpose to see their faith lead them to a life of devotion to Jesus and inspire them to be His world changers. While your kids are in our care, they are taught in a safe environment by trained and loving teachers. Below are opportunities we provide for your children on Sundays and midweek.

We also recognize that as parents, you are the primary spiritual leaders of your kids, and we count it a privilege to come alongside you as your strive to root and establish your kids in the faith. In order to equip you to lead your children, each week we will post a Discussion Guide that will help you as you train your children to dig deeper into God's Word.

We would love to hear your stories and see pictures of your family's spiritual journey! Follow us on Facebook or contact us by email.

ELEMENTARY: KINDER - 5TH GRADE


The elementary staff and teachers are dedicated to presenting God's plan of salvation through Christ by helping children develop skills in prayer and Bible reading, encouraging children to worship, and developing a missional and service-focused mindset.

Elementary students are taking a chronological journey through scripture using The Gospel Project curriculum. As they spend time in both the Old and New Testaments, they will see the big story of scripture with Jesus at the center.
