Children are special and amazing gifts from God. At Bay Hope Church, we encourage parents to have their little ones baptized as a way of saying that God is already at work in the child’s life and the parents are acknowledging this fact and committing themselves to raising their children in His ways. Early childhood baptism is for kids in nursery - kindergarten.

The Early Childhood Baptism Class is required for participation in Early Childhood Baptism weekend. The class is held the weekend before the actual baptism for parents only. Childcare is available in our nursery and preschool/kindergarten rooms.

Early Childhood baptism weekend is November 16-17, 2019 during all services. Please register before October 31st. The prerequisite baptism class is on November 10th at 11:15am.

God uses marriage as a symbol for the extravagant love that Christ has for His bride, the Church. Marriage is a sacred covenant, and couples who are actively engaged on the front lines of ministry can be particularly vulnerable to attacks from the enemy to break down their relationship.

Bay Hope Church has partnered with our sister church in Guantanamo, Cuba to change that. We will be hosting a marriage retreat exclusively for Cuban pastors and their spouses. Our retreat will culminate in a massive wedding celebration for these precious couples who give their lives for the advancement of the Gospel in Cuba.

The travel team is currently full, but we would love your prayers and support. See below on how you can help make this mission happen. 

  • DONATE new makeup, costume jewelry, perfume samples, grooms attire, shoes, beauty, and hair products

  • SPONSOR the retreat, wedding, wedding feast, or honeymoon night for a couple via monetary donation payable to Bay Hope Church.

  • PRAY for travel mercies of those missionaries going, as well as prayers for each of the couples who will be touched by this missions trip.
