Next Steps Membership Class

Open to all, we encourage you to join us for this significant time of faith and fellowship with others here at the church.  

For four consecutive weeks, beginning April 15, our pastors and staff will guide you through interactive discussions and teachings, while also heightening our understanding of how much we as a church need to be: Centered on Christ, Shaped in Community, and Sent into the World.

We are excited to grow in Christ with you!  Each week you will be guided through the Gospel message in a relevant and personal way.  You’ll learn more about our church – from governance to sacraments, our denomination and membership responsibilities.  In addition, we will be sharing ways for you to get plugged in to ministry and service opportunities here at Bay Presbyterian Church and beyond these walls.  

We’d love to have you as part of our Next Step Membership Class taking place on April 15, April 22, April 29 and May 6, 2018. This four-week session will be held on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am in Room W211.  Since this class takes place during the 9am service, childcare is available.

Relationships matter.  Let’s take the next step together at Bay Pres – join us!

Spring RESPITE event (May 4th)

As a church we host a free quarterly event that has made church more meaningful for families with special needs. It's called Respite, and it's a two and a half hour event (three hours for volunteers) that gives parents and caretakers a break from their everyday lives.

If you're a parent of a child with special needs and you want your child (and siblings) to attend the Spring Respite Event on Friday, May 4, click the attend button. Please note: each child needs their own registration form. You will have the opportunity to put your name on a waiting list if our guest registration fills up during the April 9-27 registration period. We look forward to welcoming you to Respite at BPC!

Our next event is Friday, May 4, and if you want to plug in and get involved in the
life of the church in a new way, click the button to serve.

For some parents Respite nights are the only date nights they get all year. This means so much to the families that come that we don't want you to miss your opportunity to get involved in giving someone a much needed break.

At Respite, kids spend time doing all sorts of activities and it takes volunteers to keep those activities going. That's where you come in. Whether you're a teenager or a retired adult, there is a long list of roles that you can fill ranging from specialist roles to first-time volunteers with no experience. Anybody can find a place to serve, including you.

Get in touch with Beth Golik with any questions. (440.871.3822x181)

Women's Study: Isaiah with Morgan Heberle

It is easy to lose heart under the pressure of our day-to-day demands, or in the suffering of the world around us. Our prayer as we consider the Servant Songs of Isaiah is that as the spring and celebration of Resurrection Sunday approaches, we would be reawakened to the powerful reality of God's unfolding story.

In preparation, please read through the book of Isaiah, and we will gather in February.
