Outreach

Demonstrate 

One of our values at BayMarin is “Demonstrate.” We go inward in order to go outward demonstrating who Jesus is through acts of self-giving love as we declare God’s love for the world. Led by the Spirit, we serve God, others and creation, sharing the Story of Jesus, caring for the poor, marginalized and oppressed and being a voice for the voiceless. We are called to be a compelling force for good in the world as we join Jesus in the restoration of all things.

With that value in mind, we believe God has called us to have a specific strategic focus on at-risk women, children and families both locally and globally. Our global focus is currently on Mexico. In order to live into this value and focus, we have identified organizations that we are strategically partnering with. These are our partners:

Local Partner

Gilead House - A transitional home for single mothers in need started by BayMarin in 1999 which provides women and children a safe environment in which to live and provide mothers with skills and support.

In 2016 we plan to continue our partnership and investment in Gilead House through regular engagement with the moms and children through events such as Spring cleaning, making meals, pumpkin carving and our annual Fall Festival. 

Glocal Partner - Strategic Focus - Bay Area/Mexico

Be2LiveGlocal because Be2Live functions both locally and globally to bring the Kingdom here and now in our midst. We partner with Be2Live to empower local students in Marin to travel to Mexico to work alongside orphans and give a voice to the voiceless.

Global Partner - Strategic Focus - Mexico

Plant with Purpose - Plant With Purpose exists to revitalize the environment, economy and spirituality among the global rural poor. We partner with Plant With Purpose to support the restoration efforts in the village of San Isidro Trementina in the Mixteca Alta region of Oaxaca, Mexico. This is the poorest region in Mexico and we get to be a part of what God is doing in their midst by providing the needed assistance for the necessary development to take place to bring holistic revitalization to this village.

Create

Another value of our is “Create.” We are created in God’s image and God invites us to participate in bringing new creation here and now. We believe God’s Spirit is the animating, energizing force giving the church a prophetic imagination with the mind of Christ and we are called to create culture through innovative ideas and fresh thinking that bring beauty and healing to God’s creation.

With that in mind we also partner with a local ministry in Marin called Creative Interfaces. Through our partnership with Creative Interfaces we enhance opportunities for artists both within the BayMarin Community and for those who do not have a church home. These opportunities take place at:

  • Rhema - Our Sunday evening gathering at 6pm provides the opportunity for anyone to come and experience community in a conversational style that is mutually beneficial to all.

  • Second Saturday - Every second Saturday at 10am we provide the opportunity for artists to gather together to share their work and applaud and support each other.

  • Storyline Writer's WorkshopOngoing workshops on the writing process in a communal setting with occasional public readings.

If you would like to learn more about Creative Interfaces and how you can get involved, please contact Dave Robinson
