All children of all abilities matter to God!
We believe that spiritual growth happens best in an environment that meets the diverse needs of each child in a safe and engaging setting!
K5 – 5th Grade | Sunday Morning 9am
6th – 8th Grade | Sunday Morning 10:45am
Our Exceptional Children, grades kindergarten through 8th grade, are welcomed into a classroom designed to meet their unique learning abilities. The lessons they learn are the same lessons all Bay Life Kids learn weekly, simply tailored to teach them and reach them with God’s truths using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods.
While kids of all abilities are welcome at Bay Life, if you would like your child to participate in ESE on Sunday mornings, please contact Tara Bertic at 813-661-3696 x321 prior to arriving on campus. Talking with you first will enable us to learn how to better serve your children and how to best meet their needs. The safety and well-being of all of our children is a priority at Bay Life.
If your student already attends either the elementary or middle school ESE classes, please reserve their spot weekly by Thursday pm by calling 813-661-3696 x321. This ensures we have adequate volunteers for each class. Questions? Email Tara Bertic,
The Joy Life Group
9th Grade - Adult | Sunday Morning 9am
The Joy Life Group is a Life Group especially designed for our adult and young adult Exceptional Needs individuals. We have a great time learning how to apply biblical concepts to our daily lives as we develop lasting friendships. We pray for one another, support each other and enjoy fellowship. This group meets on an irregular schedule. Please contact Tara Bertic, for details.
The Gospel Project for Kids
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.
