What is Bayside Women?

WEDNESDAY PM | Holiness by Grace

6:30 — 8:00 PM February 1 — April 25 Christians cherish the truth that God viewed us through the lens of Jesus’ goodness when we claimed Him as our Savior. We trusted that Christ’s death paid the penalty for our sins and that we were made right with God, not by our own holiness but by trusting in the holiness He provided. This became the greatest joy of our souls. However, what robs many believers of this joy is a misunderstanding of how God continues to view us after we have received the grace that justifies us. After trusting in Christ to make them right with God, many Christians begin an endless pursuit of trying to satisfy God with good works that will keep Him loving them. This makes the Christian life a perpetual race on a performance treadmill to keep winning God’s affection. We persevere on the course God marks out for us not by straining to gain His affection but by the assurance that He never stops viewing us from the perspective of His grace. God continually offers us unconditional love and the encouragement that our status as His children does not vary even though our efforts do. We race in the confidence that His grace does not cease just because we have faltered. Grace becomes not only the means by which God once justified us, but it is also the means by which we are continually encouraged and enabled to serve Him with undiminished delight.

THURSDAY AM | Gospel of John

9:00 — 11:00 AM January 19 — April 27 Kid's Ministry is available with separate registration. What does it look like to live an abundant life? We live in a world that tries to convince us that life can be found in temporary pleasures. However, in the pages of the Gospel of John, we are invited to “come and see” and to believe in the only source of true life: Jesus Christ. Come and See: A Study on the Gospel of John is a 10-week study that equips believers to:  Gain a deeper understanding of the gospel ; Learn about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and, Recognize what it truly means to be a disciple of Jesus.

THURSDAY AM | Rooted In Him: Colossians + Ruth

9:30 — 11:00 AM January 26 — March 23 / April 13 — May 11 Kid's Ministry is available with separate registration. Jesus. Colossians points us to Jesus. This letter gives us a beautiful picture of our Savior and compels our hearts to worship and adoration. Colossians: Rooted in Him is a nine-week study that will equip believers to learn joy, peace, and contentment are found in Christ alone; recognize how Colossians points to each of us through each verse; and, see who Jesus is and how we can follow in His ways. Key themes include: faith in Jesus, thankfulness, supremacy and sufficiency of Christ. Whether you have been studying the Bible your entire life, or this is the first time you have ever studied God's Word, we think this study will encourage your heart and point you to Jesus who satisfies our souls.
