Women of Wayside

The Women of Wayside meet on the 1st Monday of every month at 6 p.m.  This group is open to any lady who would like to serve at Wayside. 

Grove Center Visitation

Party at the Grove! The last Friday of the month is a special day because a group from Wayside goes to the Grove Nursing Home at 10 a.m. in Lake Wales to sing, pray, and minister to the residents. 

Intercessory Prayer

The intercessory prayer group meets on the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6 p.m. This is a special time as we pray for our country, church, families, and any other special prayer concerns. 

Men's Fellowship Breakfast

The men of Wayside hold a breakfast on the first Saturday of every month from October through April at 8 a.m.  Additionally, we have a special devotion and discuss the physical and spiritual needs of Wayside. 


Throughout the month of December, Wayside celebrates the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ through a wide variety of events.  This year, the Lake Wales Christmas parade will be held on December 8th and we always have an awesome float commemorating the Word becoming flesh with music, decorations, and more.  

Our annual Christmas Eve Candlelight Service will, of course, be held on December 24 at 6 p.m.  This is a solemn time in which we sing traditional Christmas hymns, hear a message from the Word, and partake in the Lord’s Supper.  

Finally, the Sunday before Christmas the Wayside Choir performs their annual Christmas Cantata.  This year, it will be performed on December 23 as part of our regular worship service at 11 a.m.  


 Easter is a special time for churches as we celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Every Easter we have an Easter sunrise service at the church under our new pavilion.  For 2019, our sunrise service will be held on Easter Sunday, which is April 21 at 7:00 a.m.  The morning is always cool as we sip hot coffee and eat light refreshments.  As the sunrise service comes to an end, you can see the tip of the sun peeking up over the top of the church.  It is a glorious sight for a glorious day.  

 Also on Easter Sunday, the Wayside Choir performs their annual Easter Cantata as part of the regular Sunday worship service at 11 a.m.  The choir spends several months putting this together and it truly is a blessing.
