Building on the love of Jesus!
 

While we are saddened that we will not be having our annual VBS at Bay Leaf, we are excited about the opportunity to equip you to host a Back Yard Kid’s Club in your neighborhood. To learn more about how you can take part, watch the recorded conversation with Pastor Mark Bainbridge, Mrs. Angela Britt, and others sharing collective wisdom about how to host a Back Yard Kid's Club in your neighborhood by clicking here.

To enhance your Back Yard Kid's Club we are providing Bay Leaf Church members (password protected) drama, missions and music videos. To access these videos click here or use the Bay Leaf App. Church members can receive the password by contacting Pastor Mark. Please let us know when you decide to host a Kid’s Club in your neighborhood.  We would love to help you make connections with others to come alongside of you for a successful club. If you are interested to support a Kid’s Club by providing snacks or craft material, please contact Pastor Mark so that he can connect you to a club near you!

Mark and Juli Corso hosted a Back Yard Kid’s Club on June 11-13. Pastor Mark and Mrs. Cisa visited on Saturday for their hotdog lunch and the sandlot baseball game. Mrs. Juli said “it was a great week. It was so wonderful to hear and see the kiddos grow closer to the Lord and see little neighbor friends learn about Jesus and His love!” Watch this video clip and see the excitement that fills the air!
Pastor Mark and Mrs. Cisa had a great Back Yard Kid’s Club on June 15 – 19. Several boys and girls from their neighborhood attended enjoying their time together. They played fun games, ate yummy snacks, made cool crafts, and learned more about God and His love for them. Pastor Mark and Mrs. Cisa are excited that they had the opportunity to invest in the lives of the children and they look forward to continue to build upon their relationships.
Mrs. Ronda Churchill and Ms. Lena Reyes have been involved in VBS either at Bay Leaf and/or in Canada for our entire time as members.  They were so saddened when VBS had to be canceled at Bay Leaf this year due to COVID concerns.  God laid it upon their hearts to join together to host an abbreviated, outdoor VBS at one of their homes.  They both were called to teach from the book of Daniel and John.  HE was faithful to address all of our concerns these ladies had: would the children come, how would the weather be, how could we safely do this, and what should we focus on?
 
They are still marveling at how God used His little backyard VBS to encourage all of them Lena, Ronda, and all the children, that He is God Almighty and is still at work in our lives today!  If you are called to this task, be assured, HE will provide what is needed.  Remember, Jesus continues to admonish disciples today in the same way he did long ago: Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.  Mark 10:14 NKJV
