Bayside's Ministries
Witness Ministry


To share the love of God in this country and across the world by: 

  • Identifying special projects in which this congregation can participate at a national and international level
  • Planning and leading programs to strengthen global Witness and International Missions
  • Planning and leading programs to interpret General Assembly position papers relating to missions and peacemaking
  • Alerting the Session and congregation to new ways in which we can Witness the Gospel outside our own community
Activities and Programs:

The Witness Ministry actively supports “Stamps for Missions,” a project that supports printing of Bibles and Christian Education in the Congo and Jamaica; and recycling of prescription eyeglasses for foreign missions. We also encourage worldwide mission assistance through special over and above offerings throughout the year, including One Great Hour of Sharing, World Communion Peacemaking Offering, and the Joy Fund and participating in the Nickel-a-Meal Program. 

Current Projects:

Congo Partnership- The relationship with our sister churches in the Congo, Lemba and Limete, continues. It is through this relationship that Bayside Presbyterian connects with the work of the Presbytery of Eastern Virginia via the International Partnership Committee. We continue to give support to various building projects, including a maternity clinic, and church development.

Fuente de Aqua Viva- In June, 2010, we will again send a contingent of youth and adults from Bayside on a mission trip to Ticul, Mexico (Fuente de Aqua Viva) to assist in building construction. Our folks also plan and conduct a “Vacation Bible School” supporting church development. This mission strengthens our ongoing relationship with the Presbyterian Church in Mexico. 

Washington DC Youth Mission Trip – In August, 2010, we will send a group of 32 young people and adults to The Pilgrimage in Washington DC to help work with the homeless and community action groups.
