Welcome to the Bayside Music and Worship Site. We hope you will take the time to browse around our site and see what opportunities are available for you to use your creative talents to worship the Lord. Worship is a vital part of our Christian life here at Bayside. Without worship our assembling together would only rival that of a civic or private club. Worship, however, is the central thing that brings us together Sunday after Sunday so that we can:
focus on the Holiness of God
feed on the Truth of God
dwell on the Beauty of God
be devoted to the Will of God
If upon browsing this site, you find an area of ministry in which you would like to be involved; contact us through our response form .

The Sanctuary Orchestra rehearses from 5:30—6:45 p.m. every Wednesday evening and plays in every Sunday morning worship service. The Sanctuary Orchestra allows those who God has blessed with the ability to play a band or orchestra instrument to use their talent for his glory. It is open by audition to any individual high school age and up.
The Praise Band plays every Sunday evening. Rehearsal precedes the service at 5:00 p.m. This group is also formed by audition only as need arises.
The PrayZChoir consists of 6th-12th grade students who have the desire to serve the Lord by using their voices to sing praises to glorify the Lord! We have a theme verse from I Corinthians 10:31 that says, “Therefore, whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” We want to sing with musical excellence to exalt the Lord not anyone else.
If you are a student that is in this age group, we would love to have you come and be a part of this great ministry! We rehearse on Sunday’s at 4:00pm in the Music Suite and we sing every other Sunday for the evening worship service.
We want to welcome each new member in the PrayZChoir!!! We are going to have an AWESOME year getting to know each other and singing praises to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!!
Remember that we were made to worship Christ and that is what we will do in the Bayside PrayZChoir.

The summer tour to Gallup, New Mexico will be May 31-June 8th (a Friday to a Saturday).
The total cost for this trip will be $250 per person; $400 for 2 siblings; and $550 for 3 siblings. We plan to take the 2 church buses and rent several vehicles to make this trip. What an exciting time it will be travelling through the Midwest into Gallup, New Mexico. We will have the privilege of running a VBS, play sports, sing as a choir, perform drama’s and so many other things on the reservation that we will be staying at and working with. This is the same facility that Bayside has worked for more than 20 years with. We can see what all the Lord has done in the people in Gallup over the many years of Bayside’s influence. Register online.
You can also make payment plans of $50 a month between now and June to pay for your student. In January, there will be a parent’s meeting about this tour.
