You've Found Bay Life Kids! Yippee!
Starting Sunday, August 15, all Bay Life Kids will be checked in to their new classroom/age group. Once you receive their check in tag, take note of the new room name or grade level printed on it. It should reflect their new area and will be helpful should we need to reach you in the other building. We are so excited for this year and all that God has in store for us in Bay Life Kids!
Kid's First Step
Kid’s First Step class is the next step for our kids who want to understand more about faith and Christianity. If your child is in the 3rd, 4th or 5th grade and they’re asking questions about salvation, baptism, or communion, sign up for Kids First Step! Our two-week class explains the basics of our faith in a fun and friendly way that’s easy to understand! The next one will be September 12 &19, 2021. Registration opens on August 18! A parent must attend with their child.
The Gospel Project for Kids
Curriculum: What We Teach
Bay Life uses a multi-year training program to teach the entire bible to our kids. Every week, the children study a specific portion of Scripture, that allows them to see the Christ connection. Utilizing the Gospel Project curriculum, our students are learning that the Bible is not merely a book with good stories, but rather one complete story that points directly to Jesus! Each week, we will provide resources for you to take this teaching even further through email and Facebook. Join our Bay Life Kids Facebook Group and learn more about how to continue the lesson in-between the weekend services.

Bay Life Kids (K—4th Grade)
When you think about everything you need to teach your child in the early years, it can get a little overwhelming, can’t it?
We understand—that’s why we’ve narrowed down the focus to the most important truth you can teach your child: how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ—and we want to partner with you in this!
If you allow us the blessing and great responsibility of participating in your child’s spiritual development, it’s our pledge that no matter what we’re teaching, we will always circle back to the message of the cross. Parents, we’re on your team!
Elementary Ministry is available in the Student Center during all weekend services.
If you are the parent of a kindergarten thru 5th grader with special needs, please attend our 9am service.
We have some exciting changes to share with you!
On Promotion Sunday, August 15th, your new 5th grade student will have two options. This year, we will be offering a 5th Grade class during BOTH SERVICES! That's right, we will have 5th Grade at the 9 and 10:45am service. You will check in your fifth grader in the Student Center lobby and walk them into Kids Live to the 5th grade area.
If you are planning for your child to attend the 9am service, you will drop them off in Kids Live, but PICK UP in 603 (the portable behind the Student Center). 5th Graders in second service will stay in Kids Live for the entire service. You will drop them off and pick them up in the same spot.
We look forward to serving your 5th grade student and are eager and excited to partner with you this year!
