Bayshore’s Ministries

We are the Church, the body of Christ. We grow and experience joy in life when we learn to love and serve our neighbor, our friends, and our church family. At Bayshore, we want to respond immediately, generously and passionately to those in need. Find your place in ministry in our church, community, and world.

In 1 Corinthians chapter 12, Paul teaches us that we have all been gifted uniquely to serve within our body. As a church body, we believe that each person committed to Bayshore has been gifted to serve here. We want to help you find your unique gifts that will enable you to serve to God’s great glory at Bayshore. One of the tools that can help you is this spiritual gifts inventory. Once you have taken the inventory, we would love to discuss it with you and help you match your gifts with areas to serve within our body. Please contact Tammy to schedule a time to talk!

Greeters’ Ministry

Did you know that most visitors decide within the first five minutes if they will return to a church? Our Greeters’ Ministry is not only a great way to get acquainted with the folks at Bayshore, but also a meaningful step in welcoming newcomers into our family.

Please consider becoming part of this vital ministry at Bayshore. There are greeting opportunities at both the Traditions and Encounter worship services as well as special occasions throughout the year.

Put the smile that is in your heart on your face, and sign up to be a greeter. For more information or to sign up, contact Tom or Carol Holmes at thomastholmes512@sbcglobal.net.

Flower Ministry

Flowers brighten anyone’s day whether it is in the worship service or on a bedside table.  We need Volunteers, on a rotational basis, to  1) break down and rearrange the large Sunday arrangement into 3 to 4 smaller ones and to 2) deliver the bouquets to those in need such as those in the hospital, homebound or simply in need of encouragement.  Contact Vivian Dillard or call the church office at 253-3411.

Church Office Volunteers

If you have a few free hours on a weekday each week, we would love to have you work a shift in the church office. Our office volunteers do things like stuff bulletins, answer phones, take messages, pass out literature to classrooms, proofread publications and other little jobs to help the church staff. It’s a fun way to serve the church by serving the staff. Contact the church office if interested.
