HOW TO PREPARE AHEAD FOR SUNDAY SERVICE

Before service begins, grab a pen and your Message Notes. They’re located on our website under Church At Home. You can download them straight to your phone or print them out (without the fill-ins) so you can follow along.

WHAT IS GOING ON IN LIFE GROUPS?

Life Groups are more important than ever before! Our Life Groups are staying connected during this time by meeting via Zoom or Messenger. It’s a great way to stay connected while we are apart—we’ll be launching online sign-ups soon so that you can join one!

HEIGHTS KIDS IS GOING STRONG!

Heights Kids Show on YouTube:  Parents of preschoolers and elementary kiddos, we have a service just for them!  Check out the Heights Kids Show where your kids will have fun, worship, and hear great truths from the Bible. They will love it! Get them set up by going to our Church at Home Tools webpage.

Weekly Life Groups for Kids:  We also have weekly Zoom calls for your preschool, K-3, and 4-5 grade kiddos where they can connect with each other and their Heights Kids leaders, have fun, and grow deeper in their faith! Your kiddos will have a blast! For more information, email Jacqueline Lugli, Heights Kids Elementary Director, at jacquelinel@baysidech.com.

Weekly Parent Life Group:  Parents, our world looks pretty different right now. Here at the Heights Kids, we care about you as much as we care about your kiddos, which is why we created a life group just for you. We meet weekly for a time of connection, encouragement, and prayer. To join us, please email Jennifer Alessio, Children’s Ministries Pastor, at jennifera@baysidech.com.

CHECK OUT HEIGHTS STUDENTS

If you have a student in Junior High or High School, Pastor Tim and Bronson want to connect with your student!  There are weekly messages on the Heights Student Ministry YouTube Channel—link found on our Church at Home webpage.  Also, there are Zoom meetings with their Life Groups for both Jr. High and High School.  The best way to stay connected with everything happening is to follow their Instagram pages: @theheightsjhm and @theheightshsm; you can also reach out via email to timl@baysidech.com or bronsona@baysidech.com.

WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR "MY STORIES"

We hear things…and some of them have been really amazing in this time of uncertainty and anxiety.  These are the stories you are sharing with each other and your life group leaders about how God is showing up! We would love to hear how you are experiencing God in this season. There are a couple of ways you can do this.

“SUMMIT UP!” DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR CHAIR TIME

What’s your day going to be like? Start it off here with a big dose of encouragement brought to you by our pastors and staff. Our short video devotionals will point you to the One who knows and loves you and wants to walk through life with you.  Join us each day for a fresh perspective!  If you are not receiving the daily devotionals through your email and would like to, please email amandam@baysidech.com  so we can get you opted back in.

REACH OUT OUTREACH
  • Call, email or drop a note in the post letting someone know you are thinking and praying for them in this season.
  • Items are donated on a monthly basis here at the church to assist Sunrise Christian Food Ministry, Bags of Hope and Lifting Spirits Higher meals for the homeless—praising God for this practical way to bless others! Check our “In our Community” page for the most up-to-date information.
  • Lifting Spirits Higher hot meal ministry—if you are interested in serving the homeless alongside our outreach team, please email outreach@baysidech.com.
  • We are continuing to help other churches create and sustain online church for this season.
