At Bay Life, you’ll be welcomed into a friendly, casual environment by people who are excited to see you. We want you to have an idea of what to expect when you arrive here. 

First, here's a quick 50-second overview of our weekend experience... Enjoy!

Good Friday Service

Friday | April 19 | 7pm

Many in our community look around and see despair, brokenness, loneliness, and tragedy. But for news to be "good", it must invade a dark place.

On the first Good Friday, Jesus was crucified on a Roman cross. The sun refused to shine that day; a reminder of the darkness of the pain and the shame sin brings. But from this darkness came the light of new life, for in death Jesus defeated sin once and for all. Join us Good Friday as we reflect on What the Cross Really Means.

Easter Weekend

Saturday | April 20 | 6pm
Sunday | April 21 | 8, 9:30, 11am

At the center of the Christian faith stands the resurrection. In Adam, we all died because we all sinned, but in Christ, we can each be raised back to life because He didn’t stay dead. This Easter, we invite you to join us in celebrating anew the hope that is ours in The Resurrection.

If you’re a regular attender, we ask you join us at the Saturday evening, or Sunday 8am service to help make room in the other services for guests and visitors.
