A FAMILY CHRISTMAS: EVENT FAQs
[ Open All | Close All ]
WHY DO I NEED A RESERVED SEAT?
Seating is limited in our facility. Reserved seating allows us to create a better experience for everyone. We issue FREE Christmas Eve seat reservations to avoid overcrowding and to balance out attendance across the gatherings.
HOW MUCH IS A SEAT RESERVATION?
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A RESERVED SEAT?
No problem! The auditorium will open to anyone present (with or without a reserved seat) 15 minutes prior to the start of each gathering.
WHAT IF ALL THE RESERVED SEATS ARE GONE? CAN I STILL ATTEND?
Absolutely. If the auditorium becomes full before you get a seat, you can watch the entire gathering from the overflow.
WHAT IS OVERFLOW?
Once the Auditorium seating is filled to capacity, we will direct people to our overflow seating area to watch the gathering live through a streamed video.
HOW CAN I GET A RESERVED SEAT IF I DON'T REGULARLY ATTEND BAY AREA?

HOW WILL A PERSON WHO DOESN'T GO TO BAY AREA KNOW TO GET A SEAT RESERVATION?
Anyone who doesn’t attend Bay Area will call the church or check the website for gathering times. Seat reservations will be recommended at those points.
WILL MY RESERVATION SAVE A SPECIFIC SEAT?
No, reserved seating simply gets you into the auditorium. You can choose whichever seat you like.
IF I RESERVE A SEAT IN THE AUDITORIUM, DOES IT GUARANTEE ME A SEAT NO MATTER WHAT?
No, 15 minutes prior to the gathering all open seats are available to be taken. Therefore, to ensure you get your seat please arrive early.
WILL MY RESERVATION GUARANTEE THAT MY GROUP WILL GET SEATS TOGETHER?
No, there is no guarantee for the arrangement of open seats. Our goal is simply to provide enough seats. If you are attending with a large group we recommend you get enough seat reservations for the group and arrive early to secure seats together.
DO I NEED A RESERVED SEAT FOR MY CHILD?
Any person, regardless of age, that requires a seat should get a seat reservation.
WHAT TIME DO DOORS OPEN FOR RESERVED SEATNG?
Doors open 45 minutes prior to the gatherings.
HOW DO I CANCEL A RESERVED SEAT?
If for some reason you will not be able to use your seat reservation, you can cancel or change your reservation through eventbrite.com. Alternatively, you can call the BACC office at 410-544-2222 during office hours and we will be happy to help you. We appreciate the cancellation of unusable reservations, as it opens up the seats for someone else.
HOW CAN I RESERVE A SEAT FOR MY FRIEND, CO-WORKER OR NEIGHBOR?
Simply reserve a ticket via the website or at Bay Area. A copy of the reservation will be emailed to you. You can forward the reservation to your friend or print it out and deliver it to them.
