Thank you for your interest in learning more about Wayside Baptist Church Miami! Our goal is when you come you will feel welcomed, loved, and part of our family. With that in mind, we would like to help you plan your visit. Here are some questions you might have:
When and where do we meet?
Notice: Currently, our Main Worship Sanctuary is under construction, so every Sunday, we meet in our gym; but don’t let that put you off; it’s been transformed into a beautiful meeting place for a time of worship, as well as an inspirational Biblical message.
Hymn-Style/Traditional Music Service 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM.
Modern Worship/Contemporary Music Service 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM.
Servicio en Español:
Domingos a las 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Bible Fellowship Groups:
10:15 AM – 11:15 AM Our Bible Fellowship Groups are a great way to take your faith to a deeper, more practical level. We have multiple groups throughout our church set up to walk alongside you in whatever stage of life you find yourself.
Q: What should I wear?
A: At our Traditional Service, some people may choose to dress up, while others will come dressed more casually . In our Contemporary Service, most people will come to the service in a very casual, dressed down style. At Wayside, people show up in everything from shorts and t-shirts, to suits and dresses. The most important thing is to come worship the Lord, dressed in whatever is most comfortable for you.
Q: What should I expect when I come?
A: Our church has multiple ways to enter; but most people come through our Main, Worship, or Kidz entrances, which are clearly labeled. We have greeters stationed at our entrances who will welcome and direct you to different areas of our church building. We invite you to visit our Welcome Center where you will be given a special gift that shows we are glad you’ve come.
Q: What is available for my Kidz?
A: While you are participating in a worship service or Bible Fellowship Group, your kids will enter the Kidz Bible Zone for a fun, safe, and meaningful time in small age-appropriate groups where they will learn a Bible truth in a meaningful way; plus participate in an exciting worship service specifically designed for them. To find us, come through the brightly colored Kidz Entrance located behind the church (North parking lot). Once inside, you will see a sign directing you to the Kidz Check-in Kiosk, where someone will be available to assist you with the rest of your visit.
We also have a Nursery Program for children from 4 months to 3 years of age (after 9/1 of the current school year.) Our Nursery staff provide a safe, caring environment so that even at the earliest age, our youngest attendees know God loves and cares for them.
Q: What is available for my teenager?
A:Every Sunday from 10:15 AM to 11:15 PM, we have a great Youth Program that is designed to meet students, where they are, and encourage them to walk through life with God and each other. We have Bible-based discussion groups that are age-appropriate and useful in their everyday life. We want students to know that God loves them, just as they are, and that they too, have a place here in our Wayside Youth Group.
