Welcome to Bayside!
We’re glad you’re interested in our church. You’ll find that we strive to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in all that we do and seek to bring glory to God. We hope you join us at a service or mid-week program and consider making us your church family. We’re not perfect, but fortunately, we’ve been saved by the One who is.
Finding Your Way Around
When you enter the church, the Sanctuary will be straight ahead. Be sure to stop by the Welcome Center on your way out for a free gift that includes info about Bayside.
We have ministries for children of all ages, including Children, Junior High, and High School.
Frequently Asked Questions
When are your services?
Our service is held at 10:00am on Sunday mornings.
What kind of church is this?
Bayside is a group of people who are seeking God’s guidance and direction both individually and corporately. We are a Christ-centered church affiliated with ConvergeWorldwide and Converge Great Lakes. We are blessed to have a multi-generational congregation from a variety of backgrounds who strive to honor God in all that we say and do.
What Will the Service Be Like?
We hope that every attender at the Sunday worship service will connect with God and one another in a special way. You will be greeted at the door by people who are genuinely happy you’re here and able to assist you in getting settled. Prior to the start of the service, our worship team provides an atmosphere of worship to help you transition from your hectic morning to a readiness to connect with God.
We sing a blend of contemporary and traditional songs to worship God and prepare our hearts for the morning’s message. Our pastor will teach from the Bible; applying the timeless principles of God’s Word to situations we face in everyday life. The entire service usually lasts just over an hour – depending on how long-winded our pastor is!
What Should I Wear?
Wear whatever makes you comfortable: suit and tie, jeans, dresses, shorts, t-shirts. Come as you are!
Will I Have to Do Anything, Say Anything, Give Anything, or Be Singled Out in Any Way?
No! We are a friendly bunch here at Bayside, and we would certainly like to get to know you, but you are not required to do anything that is out of your comfort zone. We used to have first-time visitors sing a solo but we rarely had second-time visitors, so we decided to end that idea. (JK!)
What About My Children?
You are welcome to keep your children with you during the worship service, but if you prefer, Bayside offers wonderful nursery care for infants and children up to age 4. When you check your children in at the Nursery desk, you will receive a number that corresponds to your child’s nametag which ensures that you will be the only person they are released to after the service. Children who are 4-years-old through 2nd grade participate in the service along with their parents until the singing has concluded and then are encouraged to attend our Children’s Church program during the message.
Sounds Good – Now How Do I Get There?
Bayside is located at the corner of Belknap and New York in Billings Park.
