Clean Start - Laundry & Shower

Every human being has a tremendous amount of worth, value, and possibilities. Sometimes, they just need a little help remembering that for themselves. If you’re wanting to do your part in cultivating hope in our community, come out and help facilitate washing/drying clothes, serving a hot meal and providing a warm shower for the underserved in our communities. Current locations: The Laundry Basket 2820 Pacheco Blvd., Martinez. The 3rd Saturday of every month; meet at the church at 6:45am The Marina District, 360 Ferry St., Martinez. Every Friday from 9am - 12:30pm Community Presbyterian Church, 200 E Leland Rd, Pittsburg. Sundays 2pm - 5pm

Serve Day

Serve Day gives us the opportunity to serve our local community and share the love of God through practical acts of kindness. A simple act of selfless love can open hearts, and together we can make a difference. What would that look like? To help you along the process, we’ve compiled a list of projects for you to choose from. See how you can use your individual giftings as a collaborative effort to lighten others’ burdens.  ∙ Choose a project. ∙ Plan your project. ∙ Then simply … Serve. 

Compassion Bag

The basics that we take for granted can be treasured in the hands of another. Practical items such as toothpaste, a new toothbrush, a can of soup, or rice and beans can change the lives of those in need even for a moment. Every month we ask you to donate just a few items so that we can share them with those who find themselves in hard times. What can you gift today? Stop by the Compassion Kiosk in the lobby to pick up your bag.

Turkey Trot

Meeting the practical needs of the underserved in our communities takes time and costs something. This is why we at The Bay Church host an event like the Turkey Trot 5K/10K. Proceeds from this race goes directly to feeding the hungry, clothing the cold, and giving hope to the hopeless. Come out to volunteer, run, or walk and make a difference in the lives of those in need.
