Sundays, August 27 and September 24, 2023 | 10:45am - 12pm and self-guided home study in between
We believe committing to a local body of Bible-believing, Christ-followers is both meaningful and momentous. When members join Bay Life, they are committing to a spiritual family that provides encouragement and support. They are also called to a biblical standard of responsibility, service, and sacrifice. Our leaders pledge to assist our members with care, counsel, prayer, and teaching.
As you enter into covenant membership with Bay Life Church, you are committing to become a part of all God is doing here. During the spring and fall we ask you to join us for a 5-week journey to learn about our mission, vision, and values. Our Membership Classes are offered throughout the year to help you learn more about Bay Life, and plug into your church family. Membership is not required to attend Bay Life. However, we believe that the New Testament guides us towards a committed, accountable belonging to a local church as a reality for every follower of Jesus.
Join us for a 5-week journey that includes two in person meetings during second service (10:45am - 12pm) and self-guided home study in between these Sundays. If you have questions, please contact Lacie Krantz, .
Registration for fall is now closed. A new class will be offered in the spring.
Sunday, October 22, 2023 | 9am and 10:45am gathering in the Worship Center Lobby
Baptism is a significant event in a believer's spiritual journey. Baptism 101 is our prerequisite class in which we share the biblical foundation for baptism, important information about baptism at Bay Life, schedule the specific time for baptism, and explain how the process will work.
The next Baptism 101 classes are set for Sunday, October 22, 2023 at 9am or 10:45am. You will only need to attend one of these classes. Registering for Baptism 101 does not mean that you are committing yourself to be baptized. We simply take it as an indication that you have a desire to explore further the meaning and significance of this event.
Our next baptism celebrations will be held Sunday, November 5, 2023.
Multiply: Discipleship Basics
Sundays, October 8, 2023 - November 5, 2023 | 10:45am - 12pm
In Matthew 28, Jesus commands us to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to follow His commands. In one word, this is discipleship. Discipleship is the process of intentionally equipping believers with the Word of God through accountability relationships empowered by the Holy Spirit in order to replicate faithful followers of Christ. Join us as we embark on a 5-week discipleship journey in which you will be equipped to be the disciple-maker that God has called each of us to be.
Multiply: Discipleship Basics meets every Sunday for five weeks during second service. There is no cost. Optional books will be available to purchase. If you have a Bible, bring it. If not, we would love to help you get one.
Share Your Faith with Confidence
Sundays, October 8, 2023 - November 19, 2023 | 10:45am - 12pm
Most Christians want to share their faith, but often do not because of fear - fear of being rejected, fear of not knowing enough, fear of offending others, or fear of being ridiculed. This class will teach you proven techniques for having thoughtful discussions about faith and getting people to think about Jesus. Course material is based upon "Tactics: a Guide to Effectively Discussing Your Christian Convictions," by Gregory Koukl. You may purchase your workbook for $15 with your registration or from the retail outlet of your choice.
Join us for seven weeks, as we learn how to share our faith with confidence in an ever changing world.
The Seven Money Types - Discover How God Wired You To Handle Money
Sundays, October 8, 2023 - December 10, 2023 | 10:45am - 12pm
Have you ever wondered why you are the way you are when it comes to finances? Could the way you feel about and relate to money be part of God’s design? True financial well-being means much more than getting out of debt and managing money well. It involves understanding how you’ve been wired by God to feel toward, think about, and handle money. The Seven Money Types will be an 8-week class that will explore these questions and help you understand how your use of finances and resources reflects the image of God.
Registration includes a copy of the book "The Seven Money Types: Discover How God Wired You To Handle Money" by Tommy Brown and a companion workbook for $20. You may wish to purchase a copy for each person registering. To request a scholarship, email .
