Welcome to the Bayside Music and Worship page. 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
Bayside School of Performing Arts
Lessons offered in voice, woodwind instruments, violin, guitar, piano and more. SPA also offers ballet/jazz dance and a theatre class, which is new this fall.
Intro to Theatre: Basics is a first look at theatre and how to present an ensemble production. Students will learn theatre basics, building an ensemble, following directions, staging a performance, blocking, character development, and much more on a level that appeals to Elementary Age students.
Intro to Theatre: Basics plus Improv is also a first look at basic theatre concepts, but will focus on Improvisation as a performance medium. Students will learn to work together, build ideas and concepts, think on their feet, and much more on a level that appeals to Middle School and Older students.

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 4:45-6:00pm in the Student Center and we sing often for the evening worship services.
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.
