This Week at BayMarin, April 15, 2018
The Way of Resurrection

In this series we'll explore some of Jesus' teachings where he reveals the new way of life he invites us into. From the idea of what family looks like, to the invitation to live in light, be free from distractions, rest in Jesus and discover the Kingdom revealed in little children. Join us as we continue to journey through 3 Years with Jesus together.  Follow the schedule   here and listen to podcasts here .

Child Dedications

At BayMarin we love to celebrate our children. One way we do this is by giving parents the opportunity to dedicate their children to God and voice their desire to raise their children in the way of Jesus. If this is something you would like to do or just simply learn more about it contact "Matt." Our next child dedication opportunity will be Sunday, May 6.

Summer Kick-off

Our annual Summer Kick-Off will be Sunday, June 3. At 10am we will celebrate our graduates in different areas and after the service we will celebrate baptism, have a potluck and pool party together at the Kaplan home.

We will be celebrating Baptisms on Sunday, June 3 after the service at the Kaplan home. If you are interested in being baptized or learning more about baptism, please contact Matt.

3 Years with Jesus

We are excited to share with you a vision for our community for the next three years to journey through the gospels together; exploring the life of Jesus and what it looks like for us to live in union with Christ and embracing the way of life Jesus has invited us into. We're calling it "3 Years with Jesus." The texts we will explore are based off of a Children's Curriculum that runs for three years. Our Student Ministries will be exploring these same texts and our Children's Ministry will engage these texts as well for a few months to see if it will align well with what they are hoping to accomplish. It is our hope that this will not just be a Sunday morning experience but will infiltrate our lives in the day to day activities of life - from reflecting on these texts alone throughout the day to conversing about them as friends, families and communities doing life together. The "teacher guide" for Year one of the curriculum I mentioned above can be found  here.
If you are a parent of children up through the 5 th  grade, we encourage you to purchase this book and engage these lessons together with your children. Whether you have young children or not, we encourage you to read the weekly gospel text together regularly throughout the week and talk about what God is saying to each of you, ask questions, and dig deep into these stories and teachings of Jesus and ask questions in your families and friendships on how it is shaping and forming you personally and in your different regular activities throughout the week. We will be writing weekly discussion questions that can be used in faith communities and families alike. We are thrilled to be on this journey together!

Prayer Requests

At BayMarin, prayer is a vital part of community life. We have three different teams of people who pray for the prayer requests that are submitted. Please share your prayer request with us  here.
Faith Community Opportunities

Our Faith Communities are our small groups - where church really happens as people live life together on a regular basis. We are looking for folks who would be willing to help lead and or host a Faith Community. If you are interested in learning more or joining a Faith Community, please contact Bryan.
Sunday Morning Prayer

We hope you will join us for Sunday morning prayer at 9:30am in the balcony of the auditorium.
