New to Bayshore? Welcome!

Welcome to Bayshore!

At Bayshore, you can come in as you are, wherever you are in your spiritual journey and find a place to encounter God and connect with others on the journey. You will experience powerful worship and relevant teaching in an inviting atmosphere!

Below are details regarding our Worship Services, children’s programs, and support for military families.

Worship Services

We were made to worship! It’s in the DNA of everyone! Through worship, we celebrate the good news of God’s love, shown to us through Jesus Christ. We are a congregation committed to prayer, extravagant worship, serving the “least of these” through love and dedication to Christ, in Christ and Through Christ. Together we can make the name of Jesus famous.

We know that there are different ways to worship God, and we want to provide an atmosphere where you can encounter God in a very real way. You may feel at home in Encounter, our post-modern service with powerful spirit led worship, or you may find comfort and peace in our traditional service. We celebrate both forms of worship here at Bayshore and childcare is available during both services and Bible study.

How does Bayshore support military families?

The Bayshore Military Support Group provides fellowship, information and Christian support to active duty and retired military and their families. The proximity of Bayshore to MacDill Air Force Base provides unique opportunities for outreach to military members and their families, offering them a church home for the duration of their assignment to the Tampa Bay Area and, often, in retirement.

  • Being a place where our personal resources can be received and utilized to further God’s Kingdom and meet the needs of the less fortunate.
