Easter at Bay Life Church

We are so glad you are considering joining us for Holy Week at Bay Life Church. 

In 2020, Bay Life was completely online as a church for most the year, but now as 2021 matures, we are holding services in-person (in our main room with safety and social distancing protocols, and in a mask only/always room, and online). We hope you will join us in-person or online at baylife.org/live during our scheduled service times.

Below you will find the links to our Holy Week Devotional for the Easter season written by our Teaching and Bay Life Kids' Ministries. Each day from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday there are Scripture readings, devotional thoughts and questions, and opportunities to grow deeper in your walk with Jesus. There are also family resources for those with children and students of all ages.

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 stream our online 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 #baylife2021, #blceaster, or #b1brandon. Thank you!

Palm Sunday - In-Person & Online

Sunday | March 28 | 9 & 10:45am

Crowds had been following Jesus from Bethany. Many of them gathered to hail this prophet from Nazareth as the, “Son of David” and the rightful king of Israel. The symbolism was unmistakable: a man from the tribe of Judah, of the house of David, riding into Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives on a donkey. For those who knew their Old Testaments, it could only mean one thing: this was a king coming for His kingdom. Of course, “Palm Sunday” gets its name because the crowds didn’t just meet Jesus along the road, they pulled the palm branches from the trees in the surrounding area and waved them as He passed by. 

However, the Son of David did not just free His people from bondage to Rome, but the corruption of sin and the tyranny of death itself that plagued all mankind.

Good Friday Service - In-Person & Online

Friday | April 2 | 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 - In-Person & Online

Sunday | April 4 | 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.
