Bay Life Church | Updated Online Campus Plans

To do our part in curbing the effects of coronavirus, all ministries normally meeting at our campuses (Chapel included) will meet online through at least April 19th.

Online services will be available this weekend on Saturday at 6pm, Sunday at 9:00 & 10:45 am at baylife.org/live. During each service, you will be able to connect with pastors and prayer partners available to pray with and for you.

The 'Safer at Home' order from Hillsborough County is in effect. Even though our offices are closed and staff are working from home, you can still reach staff through email and the church office phone.  

To encourage you in the Word daily, Bay Life has worked with Dwell. They are offering us 60 days of their incredible Bible service to all Lifers for free (No Credit Cards or anything). Just click here to receive this free gift

Easter Week at Bay Life

From Palm Sunday to Good Friday to Easter Sunday, Bay Life wants to share in this special season with you and your family. We will have services on Palm Sunday and Easter Weekend on Saturday at 6pm and Sunday at 9 and 10:45am. Available at baylife.org/live. 

Our Teaching and Bay Life Kids' ministries have also been working for months to produce a devotional guide to help us contemplate this life changing season with Eight Days - A Holy Week Devotional. You can download it at baylife.org/easter or pick up a copy (while supplies last) at the Worship Center dropoff (overhang on the north side of campus) during normal business hours. 

Also during this season, you can find numerous resources from our Teaching Ministry that can help you through this difficult time. Find out more at baylife.org/resources.
