Israel Experience 2020: Registration is available for the May 30-June 10, 2020 Israel Experience.

He knew then he had to lead others to experience Israel with the Bible as their guide. Since then, he has led hundreds to walk the ancient paths of the Scripture and to discover the root of their faith in Christ. It is the experience of a lifetime and worth the investment.

BEAUMONT  DISASTER  RELIEF: Please consider a financial gift to aid in the disaster response to the recent flooding in the Beaumont area. During the month of October, we are asking folks to give to the needs of our neighbors to the east above your regular giving. So many people came to our help in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, now it is our turn to respond to their need. You can give online at: www.bayarea.church/give and choose the option for “Disaster Relief.”

First Saturday Serve: In cooperation with the 4B Disaster Response Network, the next First Saturday Serve is coming up on November 2. Consider joining other area churches as we assist families still dealing with the destruction of Hurricane Harvey over 19 months ago. For more info and to register to volunteer, go to:  www.4bresponse.org.
