Women @ Bay Life
Women @ Bay Life offers many opportunities for you to engage with other women. Our hope is that these encounters will develop into meaningful relationships. Since women have many different interests, Women @ Bay Life offers a variety of opportunities for you.
During this time of social distancing, we have suspended some activities and moved others online. Check out the links below to see what's available now. Each listing will tell you if we are meeting in person, online or both (hybrid). Online activities require Zoom access. See the Zoom section below for details.
Check back often, as we are continually updating with new opportunities.
- Bible study for all women (see Women's Bible Study below)
- Book club for the reader (possibly online)
- Seminars on subjects you may encounter
- Art Collectives for your creative side

Women @ Bay Life Worship
Women, come join other women for worship and teaching once a month. We will have a live event once a month, which is open to all women. We meet in the Worship Center with standard COVID precautions. All are welcome. Our meetings will be Wednesdays, February 3, March 3, April 7 and May 5 at 7 pm in the Worship Center.
Women's Bible Study
Looking for a place to belong while you study the Word of God? Women's Bible Study provides a place to get to know other women, allow them to know you, and to learn more about God through His Word.
Our group is open to receive new ladies all semester. We meet online and have groups that meet in homes.
This spring, we will study Acts 1-12. As we study the book of Acts, we will consider how to live out Jesus' last command. The Apostles' example will guide us in living as a disciple of Christ.
If you have questions, please contact the Women's Ministry Coordinator, Carmelita Boyce at .
Women's Affinity Groups
In the Women's Art Collective, we take time to express the creativity God has given us in different ways. Each time we meet, someone from our Bay Life Family will share their passion and gift with us. We invite all women to come to join us for this relaxing time.
Join the women at Bay Life for our Book Club events. We meet every other month for a great time of fun, laughs, and discussion. Those who register, will be notified of the location one week prior to the meeting. See you there!
Leading a household alone as a woman is a tough job, whether you are widowed or divorced. We would like to offer a space where you can get information about topics that may help lead your household well. We invite speakers who know a topic well, like budgeting or nutrition, to come share with you. Many of those we invite are part of the Bay Life family. Make time in your busy schedule to come out for fellowship with other women in a similar situation, and useful information. Let us know you are coming so the presenter can have enough information for you.
Our Widow's groups include the New Joy Widow's Group and Helping Hands Workdays.
Our New Joy Widow's Group has gathering events every few months and is a community where widows come alongside one another, enjoy each other's company. If you find yourself in this stage of life, we want to walk together as you find God's best for you in your new normal. Join us for a meal and some great conversations.
Helping Hand's Workday is an opportunity to serve God by loving and serving widows in our community. Each month, we take a Saturday morning to help them keep their home in good condition by doing a few simple indoor and outdoor chores.
COVID 19 UPDATE
Governor DeSantis continues to recommend social distancing, limited gatherings and masks. Women’s Ministry wishes to do all we can to ensure your health and well-being. To that end, we will offer small group and Zoom meeting options. When you register, you will have the option to let us know which you prefer. We will contact you with the details for your group connection.
Zoom is free. It allows groups of people to connect over the internet using the microphone and camera on your device. You can connect using your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone. You will need internet access, a camera and a microphone (built in to most phones, tablets, laptops and some newer computers). From your computer or laptop, simply click on the Zoom link. Follow the instructions on the screen. For a phone or tablet, you will need to download the "Zoom Cloud Meetings" app and then you will be able to click on the link to launch Zoom. Please log in 10 minutes early to make sure everything is working properly. This will also help minimize interruptions once the group has started.
