Free and Faithful: Exploring Baptist Life

What does it mean to be Baptist?  What do Baptists believe?  What do Baptists have in common with other Christians?

If you have ever struggled to answer these questions, you are not alone.  We Baptists are a difficult group to figure out.  This summer Pastor Alex will offer a summer sermon series called Free and Faithful: Exploring Baptist Life as we seek to better understand our Baptist identity together.  We will talk about the Baptist confessions of faith as outlined in the Baptist Faith and Message (1963) about God, the Bible, salvation, baptism, discipleship, missions, religious liberty, social work, and the end times.  More importantly, Alex will turn to the scriptures to share why Baptists have been committed to our unique way of life for centuries.  If you have ever wanted to know more about the Baptist approach to the Christian faith or how to share it with others, this series is for you!

The Barnabas Ministry

Barnabas Ministry

Do you ever go to your mailbox only to be disappointed by what was in it? Bills, junk mail, and unwanted political propaganda make for a sad mailbox. The Barnabas Ministry is an opportunity to fill our college students’ mailboxes with notes of encouragement. Bayshore is looking for “Barnabases” to be paired with our college students.

If you are interested in this ministry of encouragement, please contact Dina Marshall.

Worship at Hyde Park ALF

While we have many friends from Hyde Park ALF who worship and mingle with us on Wednesdays and Sundays, there are some people who simply aren’t mobile enough to leave the property. Join a group of Bayshore family who are leading worship onsite at the ALF on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm.

Meet in the dining room at 3011 W. DeLeon Street, only ½ mile from Bayshore. Questions, contact Jim Neill.
