Kids Ministry at Wayzata Free

Wayzata Free Kids Ministry exists to invite all kids to know Jesus in a way that transforms their daily lives and the lives of those around them. We want to build faith, hope and love in the hearts of children, so that when they’ve grown up, they’ll be adults who love and follow Jesus. It's our goal to equip and support parents as they raise the next generation of world changers!

Kids 2.5-starting Kindergarten this fall

Get ready for the very best summer! 

We’re turning up the volume at VBC/VBS to remind each kid that they can have confidence because of Jesus. When kids begin to see themselves the same way that Jesus sees them, then real confidence begins to take root and grow. Spend a fun, memorable week learning these foundational Truths...


-You are known

-You belong

-You are forgiven

-You can change

-You can make a difference

    Our nurseries will be open on the upper level for families to drop off their little ones.


    Our Sunday preschool classes are open to kids 2-5 years old. We offer fun, Bible-based programs where kids discover God's love, using a unique curriculum called "First Look."


    “First Look” is designed to give preschoolers their first impression of their loving heavenly Father. This program uses learning centers, activities, games, music and crafts to teach kids about God's Word. Our focus is to help a child by age 5, to believe: God made me, God loves me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever


    “First Look” truly are experts in area of "take home" options for your family. About once a month we have parent cue cards for you to help you engage in what your kids are learning in their preschool classrooms on Sunday. You can also check out their Parent Cue app available at the Apple App Store or Android Market!

    K-5th grade | Gym | 252 Kids

    Dropoff and pickup in the GYM, please use the entrance by Door 2


    252 Kids is a large group/small group style program. It is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Throughout the time elementary kids spend in 252 Kids, we will cover 150 key Bible stories, focus on four faith skills and cover and review 30 themes (practical applications of God's Truth). Every lesson and resource we offer helps kids discover who Jesus is and then shows them how to put their faith into practical action. 252 Kids is dedicated to helping kids grow in wisdom, faith and friendship. 


    Everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of three basic but powerful truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.

    + I need to make the wise choice

    + I can trust God no matter what

    + I should treat others the way I want to be treated
