SHARE THE GOSPEL

INVITE OTHERS

A big church building can be intimidating for some people to enter for the first time, but now churches around the world are bringing the gospel to people where they’re already at…on their tv’s, computers, tablets, and phones.

God is on the move in the midst of all the craziness around us. Bay Life is excited to be a part of what God's doing around the world. You can help share the gospel by inviting others to join us in person, or online to stream our services on Sunday mornings. Here’s a few ideas to get you started!

These graphics are all yours! Save any of these images on your device to share on social media, in a text message, an email, on Nextdoor, or any other platform of your choosing. Whenever you’re sharing about Bay Life's online services on social media, we encourage you to use the hashtag #ChristmasEveAtBLC, #baylife2021, #blcChristmas, or #b1brandon. Thank you!
