This Week at BayMarin, March 11, 2018
Warmly Inviting All Women

Upcoming Table:

Sunday Tea at Karen Mace's in Corte Madera on March 11 from 2:00-4:00

Look for sign ups to RSVP at back of church throughout February

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.

Lent 2018: Unlocking

As we journey through Lent together this year we will be looking at the question, "What does God want to unlock within us?" As we explore the next several texts in our 3 Years with Jesus journey we will be asking, "What does it look like to allow the Spirit to unlock God's kingdom within us?" What does it look like to allow God to unlock our hearts, our minds, our bodies, our whole being so that we can live into who God created us to be? What does it look like to die to the false self so that the true self, created in Christ, can be fully unlocked to live for the sake of the world? Let's journey together and find out!

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.
