3 Years with Jesus: Teachings from Jesus

Our next mini-series in the 3 Years with Jesus series will focus on five different texts from the Sermon on the Mount. The Sermon on the Mount contains teachings from Jesus that point us to Kingdom living right here, right now. What do teaching from Jesus 2000 years ago have to say to us today? Come join us and find out why these teachings continue to be revolutionary for our daily lives in 2018.

Is Your Marriage Strong Enough to Survive the Big One?

All marriages go through challenges that shake your very foundation:

All these and more can shake the foundation of your love, commitment, and vision for your marriage.  Come and be strengthened and encouraged as we meet together to discover the gift we are to each other in the lifelong journey of marriage.

Warmly Inviting All Women

Upcoming BayMarin Table - Saturday, February 24

Come to a time and place for gathering together over a simple meal, and to dive deep with one another over real stories and Christ centered conversations. It's bound to be a time for a whole lot of laughter - and maybe a few tears - and surely time well-spent that leaves us with glad, full, and grateful hearts.

IF:Marin

What IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? At IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul's letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He's put us, so we're going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we're doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder--it will be the celebration. The work we're doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees. IF:Marin (the Marin version of IF:Gathering) invites the ladies of Marin County to gather and connect with each other and God while hearing some amazing teaching. Join us Feb 9-10!

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.
