AN UPDATED VERSION OF OUR MINISTRY PARTNER ORIENTATION

Sunday, November 5 | 1-4 p.m. | Lunch & KidCare provided

Once you've completed First Step, we'd love for you to join us at Second Step! At Second Step, we'll go more in depth into Bay Area's history, ministries, leadership, and what it means to be a Ministry Partner (our church's version of membership). You'll hear from some of our pastors and ministry leaders and enjoy lunch during the gathering. Upon completion of First and Second Step, you will have the opportunity to choose if you'd like to officially partner with the church and become a Ministry Partner.
