New City Catechism: We’re posting one question and answer, with commentary by one of our pastors or leaders, each week for 2019. Our hope is that you will take the time each week to memorize these questions and answers in an effort to strengthen your biblical knowledge and to “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15). To follow along with us visit www.bayarea.church/qna.
Israel Less Strenuous Tour: Register to attend the Israel trip December 1-12, 2019 that is designed to be “less strenuous.” The vision is to invest in our spiritual mothers and fathers and other pilgrims who have always wanted to go but did not want the difficult hikes. Same teaching, most of the same sites, and same rich experience with God. You will study the Biblical Text in context and it will change you.
