Join us for the installment of Rev. Dr. Mark Tumney. We're coming together as a church for ONE special all-church service at 10:00am in the Sanctuary to celebrate the official installation of Rev. Dr. Mark Tumney as Lead Pastor! Mark will share his vision for Bay Pres for this fall and lay out a roadmap for how we're moving forward as a church. DO NOT MISS THIS SPECIAL SERVICE. Sunday School classes are available and open for children, special needs, In His Image (adult special needs), and 5/6 Culture (5th & 6th graders) at 10:00am. Then immediately after the 10:00 service we'll move into the courtyard for a massive TAILGATE PARTY as we kick off our new fall initiative. Join us! Questions about the service? Contact Sharon Brumagin (440.871.3822 x136)

About that tailgate Party...

It's going to be a real party in the courtyard with food, games, and fun for everyone. We'll provide the main dish. Last names starting A-M, bring a side dish, last names N-Z bring a dessert. Plan to party on Sunday, August 18th immediately after the 10:00am service. Questions about the party? Contact Sally Gerycz (440.871.3822 x179)

We’re excited to see you!

Our services have something for everyone -  great live music, an encouraging message, and fun classes for your children. We can’t wait to see you!  Catch up on past sermons with our sermon archive.

Who We Are

Bay Pres is a Christian community calling and equipping people to follow Jesus fully: loving God, loving others, and making disciples (especially of our children). We find our foundation in the Bible, our hope in the gospel, our service in partnership with urban ministries in Cleveland, and our power in the Holy Spirit. Our mission as a church is to be centered on Christ, shaped in community and sent into the world. We'd love to have you join us!



What SHOULD I wear?:

You’ll see a range of attire on any given Sunday, from jeans to suits or dresses and anywhere in between, you’re welcome to dress comfortably.


Bring your children to our Children’s Entrance at the East side of the building. We have activities and events for your children (babies to elementary) every Sunday in our Children’s Ministry area. If you have questions before Sunday, contact Julie Hazlett, Director of Children’s Ministry (, 440.871.3822x117).


Yes! We have a robust Special Needs ministry, and we’ll work with you to make it easy for you to come to church. If you are a parent or care-giver of someone with special needs, contact Beth Golik, Director of Special Needs (, 440.871.3822x181).
