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
Adult Music Ministry
The Sanctuary Choir is open to all adults from college age on up. The Sanctuary Choir provides worship through song in the first morning service.
The Sanctuary Choir rehearses Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. We begin in the Sanctuary with the Orchestra then move to the Music Suite to rehearse until 8:00 p.m.
The Praise Team assists the Worship Leader in leading congregational singing. The Praise Team is formed through a select audition of our Sanctuary Choir members. Auditions are conducted only as need arises. The Praise Team is a committed group of individuals that rehearse on Wednesday night from 5:30 p.m.
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 Sanctuary Orchestra rehearses from 5:30—6:45 p.m. every Wednesday evening and plays in every Sunday morning worship service.
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.
Youth & Children Music Ministry
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.
W.A.L.K. – Worship Arts Link for Kids
A ministry to help link children to a lifestyle of worship through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
In the WALK ministry, children experience singing, playing instruments, drama, and creative movement. It is our prayer that all children come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. After doing this, we pray the children will grow to walk daily with their Lord, living lives which show honor and praise to glorify Him. It is our desire to help equip children with various ways in which they can worship the Lord so that they continue to worship Him for a lifetime.
