Bay Life is partnering with other churches in the area to reach out and encourage Covid/Coronavirus units in our area hospitals by providing encouragement and a meal for the workers of those units. You and your family can help by downloading a blank greeting card (links below) and using it to write an encouraging note.  You can either mail it back to the church or drop it off outside the worship center under the overhang and we'll make sure it gets to the doctors, nurses, and vital carers working tirelessly to help eradicate this virus. It’s a great way to encourage those on the front lines and letting them know you are praying for them.

Feeling lost? (Counseling center)

As we walk through this challenging season of social distancing, you or someone you know may find that you’re struggling with different mental or emotional health issues that you’ve never experienced. We want you to know that our counseling center is still open and taking appointments during this time through phone or video sessions. During your session you’ll be able to speak with one of our licensed counselors who can help you come up with strategies that can guide you through this time. We’re also doing normal appointments for individual, marriage, children, or even pre-marital counseling. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment call our counseling center office at 813.319.0183 or visit our website at baylife.org/counseling.
