Pastor’s Update

A Word from Pastor Brian Concerning 8 Days of Hope

Happy Wednesday Church,

I pray God is giving you opportunities to make disciples in your circles of influence today. We are praying for your faithfulness and fruitfulness with the people you interact with every day for the sake of the gospel.

This year, in lieu of our normal Blessing the Bay Area service event, we will be collaborating with the 4B Disaster Response Network and Eight Days of Hope to rebuild 800+ homes in the 4B area. Please watch this 4 minute video and begin planning how you and your family and even your LifeGroup can be a part of the largest short-term rebuild effort known in U.S. History. We, Bay Area Church, can’t miss this incredible opportunity to love our neighbors still sitting in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. 

This Sunday, I will be telling you more about Eight Days of Hope as we gather in worship. We will focus on Ephesians 1:15-2:10 in our new message series if you would like to read ahead. Let’s stun the people of the 4B area with the love of Christ. You are loved.

Pastor Brian

PRIME OPPORTUNITIES:  Want to share GOD’s LOVE with Kids? We are in search of committed leaders who understand that Kids Matter to God and are worth the investment. Whether it’s rocking a baby, teaching a memory verse while flinging foam hearts in a parachute or discussing a “Big God” question with a Preteen – YOU can make an eternal difference in our ministry – and WE NEED YOU! Here are a few ways you may choose to serve NOW:

  • We are opening NEW CLASSES in March 2018 at 9:30 and 11am. Young 2’s LifeGroups (kids who turned 2 after 9/1/17) will need excellent team members to invest in them and share the love Jesus has for them. At 9:30am you may choose to serve weekly or month on/month off.  At 11am you would alternate every other month with another secured team. Help us stay on track and open these classes on time and with excellence.
  • Our 3 yr old classes are looking for exceptional team members to serve at 9:30 or 11am.  It’s imperative that we secure team members and avoid combining classes. The best teaching moments happen when the class size is appropriate. We email lessons weekly and provide all supplies needed. You focus on preparing your heart and connecting with kids and their parents.
  • KidMin Desk Attendants are needed at 9:30 and 11am. If you want to support KidMin but prefer not to serve in a classroom, this may be the perfect place for you! Friendly, welcoming team members are needed. Computer knowledge is extremely helpful as we help families check in and we’re willing to train! Help strengthen our team by emailing or go to this link on our website:


“Blessing the Bay Area / Eight Days of Hope”: Mark your calendars for this unique opportunity to serve the 4B Area. As a part of the 4B Disaster Response Network, our church is partnering with a ministry called, “Eight Days of Hope.” March 10-24 we will be participating in the largest rebuild effort in the history of the United States as we attempt to rebuild approximately 600 to 800 homes in the 4B area. Thousands of volunteers are needed to carry out these projects and while many will come from all over the country, we need to mobilize our church to participate in a significant way. Please consider serving at least 3 days during the March 10-24 time frame. Those do not have to be consecutive days (i.e. one Saturday, one Sunday afternoon and the next Saturday would work). Instead of our usual annual “Blessing the Bay Area” spring event, this year we are joining this unique project to have a greater impact on our communities. We are encouraging LifeGroups to serve together when possible. This is a “family friendly” event but you MUST register to participate. For more information and to register, go to:

2018 Middle East Mission Trips: Those interested in the possibility of joining one of our 2018 Mission Trips to the Middle East should contact John Eckeberger at john.eckeberger@bayareachurch as soon as possible. Each of our three teams are nearing capacity so please do not hesitate if you have any interest in participating.


Worship Choir Rehearsal: Worship Choir meets on the first Wednesday of every month in the Green Room, beginning at 7pm. During this time, we will sing through new music for our worship services. You do not have to be a church member to attend rehearsal, everyone is welcome!

Bay Area Worship Live – “Great I Am” CD is available for purchase at the Legacy Resource Center. Digital copies available online at iTunes and other online distributors.
