Imagine what our generosity will do when we remodel and outfit the current Activity Center to be a Ministry Center reaching 270+ teenagers at the most influential season of their lives. Our teens have so many distractions and voices vying for their attention. We want to create a space that will serve as a third place for teens. They will want to get here because the facility is relevant, as well as creating a space for leaders to spend time pouring into these teens’ lives. This would be a state of the art facility serving 270+ jr. high and senior high school students. The facility could be used multiple times per week as we reach out and draw them in through after-school programs.
Imagine what our generosity will do when this Ministry Center serves not only our teens but our ministry to seniors as well. 270+ seniors will enjoy this facility as they meet for their weekly class, enabling them to pursue God and build community together in a wonderfully refreshed and redesigned facility. Our seniors are an important part of the life of Bayside. We also know that many are walking alongside others in friendship. We want them to enjoy their time on campus each and every time they come and touch the living, vibrant family of God.
The Student Center remodel is complete!
Thank you for your continued commitment to our Generosity Unleashed campaign. If you haven’t already, come visit this state-of-the-art facility where hundreds of people gather each week to learn and grow in their faith.
Imagine what our generosity will do in Mexico’s Rancho Santa Marta. These are children coming from the streets of Mexico or whose parents will not care for them and are left to fend for themselves. There are also children with disabilities that are not able to be helped by Mexico’s social welfare system. This is truly loving the “least of these.”

God is in This Place
We are serving well at Santa Marta. It was a mild 115 on Sunday, only 95 with a cool breeze! Thank you for all of your prayers. We are working on Victor House, which will become permanent housing for a few older residents. It’s hard manual labor, but such a blessing for this ministry and for us, as we represent Jesus in our serving! We are in God’s country and doing God’s work, taking care of his children. We are so blessed to live in the United States. Even though we have 5-minute military showers, yucky tasting water and no air conditioning…it’s still an AWESOME experience!

Truly Life Changing
We spent the day with the children of Santa Marta. The joy and happiness gleaned from their eyes as they play together on the playground. I could hear laughter and giggles. The simple things like a gentle smile or hug fill them up. God’s presence and love are here. This experience has been truly life changing.
“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” Matt 25:11
Look at what you did, Bayside!!
