Elementary

Kindergarten-3rd grade

Each weekend Kindergarten-3rd graders are broken up into various dynamic, kid centered areas. Here kids can be a part of an exciting and active environment filled with songs, games, relevant teaching, and dedicated volunteers. Each child gets to participate in his or her own small group as well as large group worship time. Small groups are where kids can connect with others and grow in their relationship with Christ. Large group is where kids’ hearts are engaged with music and the creative teaching of God’s Word through drama, video and stories!

If your child is interested in getting baptized, this is the class for them! Our class goes through the basics of baptism in a simple way and ensures that your kids fully understand their commitment to Christ when they celebrate their inward change publicly through baptism in front of friends and family. We also help to equip parents as to how they can best walk through this experience with their child.

  Every first Saturday of the month
  2:30pm
  Adventure Cafe

Baptisms occur every Second Saturday of the month immediately following the 10:30 service. (11:45am)
We require that all kids take this class before getting baptized. RSVP to nathan.conover@baysideonline.com

Our Special Needs ministry provides a unique, loving community for children with special needs ages 3-11 in a multi-sensory environment created just for them.  Qualified volunteers will care for your kids while you enjoy a weekend service.  Our goal is to take kids to an age appropriate class to experience worship and a message.  We pair children with a buddy to attend classes and experience worship with their peers, while also maintaining the option to go back to the Special Needs class if the experience is too overwhelming.  Kids will also take part in an appropriate Bible lesson paired with fun sensory ways to learn the Bible verse of the week alongside their buddy.

Our Special Needs ministry is available at the 10:30 service only.
Please feel free to email us if you have questions or want to let us know you plan to attend the first time by emailing adventure@baysideonline.com

Check-in begins 20 minutes before each service and ends 20 minutes after the service starts.
Your first time?  Don’t worry, just visit any of our computer check-in stations around campus and we will show you where to go.

When Do Kids Meet?

Saturdays @ 5:15pm | Sundays @ 8:30am & 10:30am
We recommend arriving about 15-20 minutes before the service to allow time for parking, checking in your child, and finding yourself a seat in the auditorium.

How Do I Check-In My Child?

Checking-in your children is one easy step! There are check-in kiosks located in our Nursery, Preschool, and the Children’s Building. Step up to any station to check-in. Please follow the flags to find the best location for your family. When checking your children in to our electronic check in system, you will receive a receipt with a code on it. This code is unique to your family and changes every weekend. When you pick up your children, we will match your receipt code to your child’s nametag. This check-in procedure has another benefit. If we need to reach you during service, your receipt code will be displayed on the screens in the auditorium. Parents of kids from birth to 2 years can leave their cell phone number and we will text them if their child needs them.

When Do I Pick Up My Child?

Please return to the locations you dropped off your children for pick-up immediately after service
