    I know that being new to a church can seem confusing at first. We want to really help you get plugged in and make new friends. I would encourage you to give us a try a few times, so that you get a good idea of what our student ministry is all about.

    We always have something exciting going on here and we would love for you to be involved in any of our events.

    If I can answer any questions you may have about our church or student ministry, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We would love to see you soon!

    Sunday Morning

    9:45 AM | FLC | 6th - 12th Grade.

    We are a good-sized church and if you're not careful you can get lost in the crowd. Sunday School is set up for students to break down into smaller groups (students are grouped by grade and gender) where they can get to know each other and form friendships with other believers their age.

    Mission Opportunities

    Kenya June 19 - July 1
    Bay Leaf Baptist Church has been working in Kenya since 1998. Our work is through partnerships with national pastors. We have worked with many tribes including the Gusi, the Luo, the Kamba, and the Maasai. Our focus is evangelism and discipleship. This includes the training of pastors and church leaders. In addition we have partnered with a number of schools and orphanages. We have also provided medical clinics, and water projects.

    ThailandJuly 1 - July 15
    Bay Leaf Baptist Church has made several trips to Thailand over the years. Currently, we are focused on a ministry in the Chiang Mai area in northern Thailand. We have partnered with Chiang Mai Acts of Grace Church, and Grace International School. These partnerships allow us to work with street children as well as students in the school. We have a wonderful partnership with a Thai orphanage in Chiang Mai.

    Canada Mission Trips
    Port Elgin, Canada - SoccerJuly 4 - 8
    Port Elgin, Canada - Track and FieldJuly 18 - 22
    Born from a burden of our members, Canadian-born, Lynne and Bill Hudson, we seek to take the Gospel to the western part of Ontario, near Lake Huron. Our relationship in Canada began in 2007 with our first team going in the summer of that year to offer a sports camp and Vacation Bible School. We have partnered with local churches in the Port Elgin area to offer sports camps and VBS to children ages five to twelve. In 2013 we partnered with Evergreen Ministries to offer a camp in Stayner, Ontario. The Lord has truly blessed as we have worked with other Christians to take the Gospel to this part of Canada. This trip is wonderful for families to experience missions together. Every family member will have a role, no matter the age or spiritual gift. Individuals and couples of any age can grow in their walk with the Lord through the support of Bay Leaf and Canadian Leaders.
