Church on Your Street: One way that you can partner with us to saturate the 4B area with the Gospel during this time is by taking the opportunity to pray for, love, and serve those closest to you…the people that live on your street. How can we do this? You can bring Church on Your Street. Go to www.bayarea.church/live and click on the Church on Your Street button. There, you will find a simple but powerful plan for how you can pray for your street, support your street, serve your street, and be Jesus to your street! Find helpful resources, ways to connect with others who are answering the call, share with us where you are focusing your efforts and begin the journey of bringing Church on Your Street. 

Israel Experience 2021: May 30-June 10, 2021 Israel Experience registration is now open. In 2006 Brian experienced the land of Israel and studied the biblical text in context for the very first time. It opened his eyes and changed him forever. 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. Please consider this amazing discipleship adventure. You can register at bayarea.church/israel.
