We want the children of Bayside to have a deeply rooted confidence in the character of God so they passionately follow Him through good and bad times. Our hope is to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children by providing an environment, lessons, and resources that center on the Gospel and teach the nature and character of God.
You are welcome to keep your child with you during the worship service, but if you prefer, we offer wonderful nursery care for infants and children up to age 4. Register your child at the Nursery desk ten minutes before the service.
Our Children’s Church program is offered during our 9:00am & 10:30am service for children ages 5 through 3rd grade. Children participate in the service with their parents until the music ends and then have the option of joining their friends for a time of age-appropriate learning.
We have many opportunities for junior and senior high school students to be encouraged and challenged in their walk with God. Our youth group, led by our Youth Pastor Thomas Bush, provides a safe place for students to ask questions and be themselves. Our Senior High Youth Group meets on Wednesdays from 6:30pm until 8:00pm. We have games, devotionals, Small Groups, quizzes, prizes, time to hang out with friends, and much more. Come and join us!
Whether you are single, married, attending college, starting your career, empty nesting, enjoying retirement, or someplace along the way, Bayside has something for you! Here at Bayside we believe in the importance of a comprehensive education and training in God’s Word and the application of it in daily living.
Men’s Bible Study
Men of all ages are invited to join us in the garage (yes, the garage) on Wednesday nights @ 7:00 pm, as we study the book “Stepping Up, A Call to Courageous Manhood”, by Family Life Dennis Rainey. Using personal stories and biblical principles, we identify five stages of a man’s journey through life and examine our responsibilities at each step.
The Well Women’s Ministry
Join us on Wednesday, April 6 at 5:45pm for dinner, worship and our next Bible study, Crazy Love , by Frances Chan. Crazy Love, ” Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn’t working harder at a list of do’s and don’ts — it’s falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same.
Because when you’re wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.”
1829 is a new program for young adults. If you’re out of high school and between 18-29 years old, we invite you to join this new group led by Pastor Thomas! Contact Thomas to find out when our next Gathering takes place.
JOY (Just Older Youth)
Our JOY group is for people 55+ with the goal of meeting the social and spiritual needs of our seniors with opportunities for fellowship and service.
Our Promise 14:18 ministry desires to increase awareness of the orphan situation in our world, communicate God’s heart for orphans, and provide Christ-centered support and direction for those interested in joining His call to care for orphans. Because there are few programs in our area that focus on orphan care, we desire to be a resource for the community by providing information, resources, and support to all who ask. We are also seeking opportunities to connect with local organizations, churches, and city governments to further the cause of orphan care in the Twin Ports community.
Visit the Promise 14:18 site for more info and news about upcoming events.
We encourage you to join a Small Group to deepen relationships with others in the body at Bayside. Each group will be built around three components: faith, food, and fun. The biblical word for this type of fellowship is koinonia. A great picture of this is found in Acts 2:42, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” As we journey together, we strengthen, encourage, and build one another up. If you are interested in joining a Small Group or would like more information, contact Mark Brookmole by calling the office at 715-394-6002.
