Middle School (6th8th Grade)

For a lot of middle school kids, it’s all about “me.” And here at Bay Life, we build on thatin a good way.

Our aim is to get our middle school students to own their faith. To realize their relationship with Christ is no longer about what mom and dad believe, but instead, it’s about them owning their own faith.

We want to motivate our middle school students to take personal responsibility for their spiritual health and growth, and to take seriously the Great Commission. Once they start catching on to these simple truths, they’ll naturally realize that it’s not all about “me” … and that will be a beautiful thing to watch.

Each week, students experience a combination of worship, games, a challenging message, and most importantly, interaction with a small group.

High School (9-12th Grade)

The wait is over. It’s time for our students to live out their faith. It’s time for them to realize that having a personal relationship with Christ doesn’t mean keeping it to oneself. It’s time for them to stand up for what’s right, even if they might be standing alone. It's time they look to God for their satisfaction and approval and to worship Him...not just on Sundays, but in everything they do.

We want to see our students fully surrendered to Christ, owning their faith, serving Him, and serving others. The fact is, what your student does with these few years of high school could set the trajectory for the rest of his/her life. Let us help you guide your student in the way he/she should go.

Each week, students experience a combination of worship, games, a challenging message, and most importantly, interaction with a small group.
