Mission Trips

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.

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.
