On January 5th we started a study on I Peter. Church members have access to RightNow Media, if you would like to watch the videos in advance. The videos are short, the longest being 14 minutes. There are 7 sessions and, though we initially tried to spend 2 weeks on each session, we are spending much longer going into more depth of the subject. Even during these trying times of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we continue to meet via ZOOM video conferencing (available via computer, tablet & smartphone) every Sunday morning, before worship. Even if you don't have a webcam for your computer, you can still tune-in and listen. The link to the series on RightNow is:
Pastor Mac's reasoning for doing this series is three-fold:
- The content is relevant to today with trials and suffering both due to natural causes and losses and to the fact that the world is increasingly anti-Christian.
- With a video series and both the participants guides and leader’s guides available, there is ample material for each of us to learn and stay on schedule, even if a lesson or two is missed. Of course, the questions in class and the discussion is often where we learn the most, so you won’t want to miss a single week.
- If he is not available to facilitate for some reason (like a vacation?), someone else can step up, use the leader’s guides and facilitate discussion.
Join us the last Sunday of every month, when we have a Church Lunch Gathering after our Sunday Worship. October-April this is a Pot Luck, where everyone who can is asked to bring a dish or dessert item; May-September it's a BBQ, where the church provides grill items, additional items or desserts are always appreciated, and the church provides beverages and salad every month. All are welcome to join us in the fellowship and get to know one another better.
In these trying times of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), please help us to continue to work faithfully in God's name. Bay Community Alliance Church relies on your offerings to operate and spread the Word of God, as well as support our community and beyond. In addition to Alliance Missions & Ministries, some of the other ministries we regularly partner with include A Woman's Concern, Faith Comes By Hearing, RBC Ministries, Samaritan's Purse, Songtime Ministries, and Teen Challenge.
In order to help Bay Community be better stewards of the funds you donate, we would request you to first, if possible, mail your donation to BCAC, PO Box 296, Buzzards Bay, MA 02532-0296. If you wish to give online, we encourage you to use a bank account by clicking on the “Bank Account” link listed at the bottom of the donation form. This will reduce the fees we pay for the secure services we have contracted. We also ask that you might consider covering the fee by checking the “Cover Fees” box. Either way, we thank you for your support as we Advance the Kingdom of God.
'Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. ' 2 Corinthians 9:7
