Why Life Groups?

At Bay Life, we believe your relationship with God is best grown through relationships with other believers. In Life Groups, you will experience a personal community that can help you grow closer to Christ, share in your joys, and support you through your trials. Life Groups meet all over the Brandon area including some on-campus groups. Childcare is available for many of our groups. If you have any questions or need help registering, you can contact us at

Group Finder

Every week, hundreds of Lifers meet in small "Life Groups" to learn more about God and pray, laugh, live, and eat. Life Groups are at the heart of Bay Life and are the best way to build friendships, find support in hard times, and plug into the Bay Life community. 

The groups listed below are open to new folks joining their group. Check out the groups below and if one looks interesting, email the leader. If you don't see anything today, check back. We will be continually updating the web with more groups as openings become available. 

There are also a number of classes to help you along your spiritual journey. Check out the details under Spiritual Growth or Foundations. 

Below you will see a listing of currently available groups and classes. Each listing will have its own schedule. You are welcome to sign up for any group or class you see listed here.

Childcare is available through Bay Life Church on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings with advanced reservation. To make a reservation or for more information, email
