Marriage, Family & Parenting

All Ages

Bayside's Marriage & Family Ministry exists to strengthen marriages, and encourage and equip parents with the tools to become intentional Christ-centered families. Our ministry offers parenting classes for expectant parents, MOPS, studies for parents through the teen years, and community groups/family resources.

Premarital / Family Counseling

Bayside Marriage Coaching connects seasoned married couples (coaches) that have weathered the storms of marriage with younger couples (recipient couples) that are seeking encouragement in their marriage.
Through thought-provoking questions and conversations (not counseling), the marriage coach couple lovingly guides the recipient couple toward their goals in marriage and helps equip them with tools for building a thriving relationship.

At MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), we come together as a community of moms and moms-to-be who seek authentic connections, support and personal growth. We believe every mother should know that what she does matters and that she isn’t alone.

Bayside Granite Bay MOPS is led by mothers of babies to preschoolers, who are passionate about bringing women together to share in the joys and challenges that this season of motherhood brings.

We gather together for a warm breakfast, enjoying encouraging guest speakers or doing fun crafts while our kids are cared for and making new friends in the MOPS kid’s program. Our group is a warm and inviting. A place where you can come – just as you are – to be refreshed and build friendships as a mom because we believe better moms make a better world.

MOPS meets Monday Mornings (Fall Semester starts September 16th)  from 9:15-11:15 am.

The Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a unique intervention model created by developmental psychologists Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross, founders of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University. It is based on more than a decade of research and hands on work with vulnerable children and their families.

TBRI offers in-depth training for parents of children with trauma-based behavioral issues. Children that have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment, and/or trauma in early development can develop behaviors that can be confusing, frustrating and difficult to manage even for the most patient and loving parents. Come join us and become empowered, connected, and learn lifelong solutions that will build a stronger parent-child relationship.
