Update June 25, 2020

Because so many communities are canceling their July 4th celebrations, Janet and I are working on something special to celebrate Independence Day. On Sunday, July 5th at 6:00 pm, we will be holding a Praise and Prayer Service in the Bay View Church parking lot, weather permitting (we don’t have a rain date chosen). 

  • park in the parking lot 
  • leave a car’s width between your car and the next car (you will have to use your best judgment because the parking lot is not lined – 8 1/2 feet is typical)
  • open your car window 
  • you might want to wear a mask because of the open car window 
  • sit back and enjoy 
  • you must remain inside your car 
  • there will be no access to the church building 

Also, the attendance for the zoom coffee hours for both Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning has dwindled to 0 or 1 person. Therefore, I am canceling them for the summer. So, go outside and enjoy the weather and your family instead.

A Message from the Stewardship Committee:

It’s time to step up because we can’t step out. Bay View Lutheran Church, in consideration of the health of its members, is discontinuing worship for the time being.  However, the church will still incur monthly bills.  Without services, the weekly collection will be zero.  Please be mindful and generous as you think about your church in this difficult time.  You can donate through the website, or you can send a check to church each week or month.  You could give a good-sized donation once, or once in a while.  Continue to pray for Bay View Lutheran Church, its staff and its members.  We can all rejoice together when the health danger passes and we meet again in church.  Till then, keep praying-and keep giving.

Thank you.
