Youth Ministries

Take a look below to read a little about each of the youth fellowship and learning opportunites we offer.  Included with each description is when they meet.  Continue further down for group event announcements.  All questions about our youth programs are to be directed to our Youth Coodinator.


The Deep

The Deep is a guided discussion group designed to help young people wrestle with the tough questions they face in an environment where middle and high school students become equipped with the love and word of God to face these challenges. This is all done to allow them to grow in faith and to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. 


  • Combined Youth will meet at 10:45-11:30 on Sunday Morning
  • The last Sunday of each month, the Deep will not meet. Instead the youth are encouraged to participate in Worship

Mission Opportunities

The Ministry of Wayside is deeply committed to spreading the message of love and service of Jesus Christ to all people. It is our goal to instill this value in all of our people. To this end, the Youth Ministry provides opportunities for our middle and high school students to serve God and their fellow humans both at home and abroad.

IGNITE Wednesdays

Here at Wayside, we are excited to offer formative opportunities for our middle and high school students as a combined youth group. The curriculum is uniquely designed and formatted to help them grow in a deepening relationship with God and to equip them to meet the changing world around them. 

Faith Formation

Multiple times throughout the year, the Youth Ministry provides special opportunities for faith formation through field trips, retreats, VBS, and special worship experiences. It is our desire to help students interact and experience faith out of the ordinary and to have their relationship with God grow in extraordinary ways.
