Preschool Bible Fellowship classes in The Reef, allow preschoolers to experience age-appropriate Bible learning activities using hands on approach in a loving and safe environment. Activities are planned with a specific goal in mind: teaching spiritual truths. All of our children, from babies through 5 year old’s, hear God’s word and His love for them. Bible Fellowship classes meet at 9:00 am. Preschoolers can stay in class during worship at 10:30 am, allowing parents the opportunity to attend adult Bible Fellowship groups, worship service and serve as a volunteer.
Loving teachers and volunteers are waiting to share God’s Word and His love with preschoolers.

Awana is a high energy, fun place for children to learn more about God’s Word. The goal of Bayside's Awana Club is to give kids the chance to know, love, and serve God! It’s an exciting approach to teaching God’s Word, combining learning with irresistible fun to produce lifelong results in children.
In addition to partnering with parents to help develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Jesus Christ, Awana has a tremendous reputation for helping kids get God’s Word into the center of their lives. It goes beyond simply memorizing the verses though. Awana is all about making sure that our children understand the meaning and, most importantly, how to apply them to their lives. Awana Clubs are filled with high energy fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth. The 105-minute meetings are divided into four rotations:
Game Time is comprised of exciting team-oriented games exclusive to Awana that stress healthy competition and good sportsmanship.
Large Group Time is full of contests, interactive games, and teaching of God’s Word.
Handbook Time is a small group time where children memorize Scripture. This is where children work with their leaders to learn God’s Word, understand the meaning, and apply it to their lives.
Kingdom Kid's Choir music time and Missions.
Each Awana Club is age-appropriate and teaches kids that God is real, that He loves us very much and sent His Son, Jesus Christ. We talk about how God helps us in our daily lives and hears our prayers. We learn that God’s Word is relevant to everyday life and that hiding God’s Word in our hearts is powerful. Experiences in Awana foster a deep commitment to Christ and a genuine love for God’s Word.
PROTECTING YOUR CHILD
HOW DOES BAYSIDE PROVIDE SAFETY AND SECURITY FOR MY CHILD WHEN I’M ATTENDING THE WORSHIP SERVICE OR A BIBLE FELLOWSHIP CLASS?
Through use of a computerized check-in system, each child is given a name tag containing his room number and any special allergy alert. The parents receives two copies of a matching security tag containing the security number only. This security tag is used to pick up the child. No child is released without this security tag.
HOW ARE TEACHERS AND VOLUNTEERS SCREENED?
We require all volunteers to submit to a thorough background investigation screening. All volunteers are approved by our Leadership prior to being trained to serve with children.
