Worship and Religious Life
In spirit of the Chautauqua movement, the Department of Worship and Religious Life at the Bay View Association annually brings preachers and speakers to Bay View who represent various points of view. During a Chautauqua season, participants should expect to have their spirits, minds and bodies stretch in all aspects of life.

Our preachers and lecturers preach at the Sunday worship service, 10:45 a.m.-noon in Hall Auditorium. They then lecture at 10 a.m. Monday-Thursday at the Religion and Life Forum in Voorhies Hall.
In addition to our worship services, we offer Sunday morning eucharist and Sunday School classes for all ages, with child care available from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. During the week there are Bible Studies for men, women and youth; and occasional retreats and special events. Bay View also has an active Stephen Ministry program. As part of a focus on outreach, the annual CROP walk is held in collaboration with other area congregations.
