Bay Area Church members will vote to approve and ordain Elder candidates at 9:30am and 11:00am on September 16 in both worship services. All candidates were presented at the Bay Area Family gathering in April 2018 after a full year of training and testing. We, the elders, received inquiries concerning the candidates and answered each inquiry. For another look at their biographies please visit www.bayarea.church/elders. The church bylaws require a secret ballot vote, resulting in 85% in the affirmative, for congregational approval.

ADULT WORKERS NEEDED SUNDAY MORNINGS – SERVING WITH KIDS HAVING SPECIAL NEEDS: Bay Area Church KidMin desires to minister to all children and their families. We are looking for willing hearts to serve children with special needs on Sunday Mornings. Currently, we partner a buddy to accompany the child in a classroom. In the near future, we will have 2 specially equipped “Champion’s Club” classrooms, to minister more effectively to kids through 6th Grade. You don’t have to be professionally educated as a special needs teacher to be a buddy (or serve in Champion’s Club), but those of you with this training would be extremely helpful to our ministry. Otherwise, if you are interested and passionate to serve with these kids, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Interested in Leading from the Platform? Our next Worship Platform Interest Meeting is scheduled for October 14, 2018, in the Green Room at 12:30pm. This is a required meeting and and is only held twice a year, so be sure to come!! Register online at www.bayarea.church/worshipministry.
