Pastor’s Update

Let’s stay connected and let’s reach others!

Dear Bay Area Family,

We miss being together and we will enjoy it again in the future. Until then, our team created one place to help us all stay connected and engaged. I encourage you to explore our new web page www.bayarea.chuch/live. Here you will find direct links to our LIVE ON-LINE worship services as well as links for children, teenagers, and adults.  Discover new on-line connection points with our ministry team and tools for home discipleship, all in one place.

Also, on the same page you will find important links for HELP, prayer, and giving as we continue in this season of social distancing. So, go visit www.bayarea.church/live and stay connected with your Bay Area Family.

This Sunday we will continue our series on  21 days of prayer and fasting. We will be studying Matthew 6:5-18 together. Make plans now to join us LIVE ON-LINE at 9:30 or 11. Then connect with your LifeGroup and your family for discussion. Many LifeGroups are now meeting using applications like Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts. Reach out to your LifeGroup leader for more information.

Also, we encourage you to start new online groups during this season. Connect with the people in your circle, set up an online time to meet, ask friends to watch the message, and use the LifeGroup discussion guide at www.bayare.church/live to lead discussion.  In this way we can reach others who may never physically walk into a church building. You can do it!

We love you. We miss you. May the Lord bless you and keep you.

Israel Experience 2020: Registration is available for the May 30-June 10, 2020 Israel Experience. 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 https://legacymilestones.com/event/2020-israel-study-tour/.
