As the situation with COVID-19 continues to unfold, we as a church want to do our part. Governor DeSantis recommended that group gatherings be suspended as a means to prevent any spread of this potentially harmful virus. As such, we will be postponing some of our group gatherings and moving others online.

On campus Life Groups have moved to an online platform using Zoom. Watch for an email from your Life Group leader with details for your group meeting plans.

If you are new to Life Groups and are interested in visiting a group, please email so we can help you get connected. Be sure to include information about the group you are interested in.

We encourage all groups to stay in touch with one another and ask if members of your group or their neighbors need help. Perhaps someone could use a few groceries and shouldn’t be exposed to the general public or can’t shop during the restricted store hours. If your group finds ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community, we would love to hear about it. Email Shane Clark, Life Group Pastor,

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 greater 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

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 Breakthrough. 

Check back often for the most current listings.
