Pastor’s Update

Bay Area Family Gathering, Sunday Night – 6:30 PM


If you call Bay Area Church your church, do not miss our annual Bay Area Family Gathering this Sunday evening at 6:30 PM. We will bless God for His work through our fellowship this past year. We will also look to the future. I am excited to share with you what we as elders and pastoral leadership believe God has on the horizon for our church and how we will take steps toward that horizon this coming year. I believe, if you attend, you will be inspired, informed, and really excited about the possibilities for our future ministry. This is the moment to become most informed. I hope to see you Sunday night in the worship center at 6:30 PM.

You are loved!
