Worship is at the heart of the Bay View experience. We come from different religious backgrounds and worship traditions, but we share a common desire to grow in faith and deepen our spiritual life. Here at Bay View, hospitality is a core value. It is our intention to convey a warm and generous welcome to all who find their way here.
There are one or two worship services every Sunday during the summer:
- 8:45 am – Ecumenical Communion Service in Crouse Memorial Chapel (June 18 – August 13, 2023)
Crouse Memorial Chapel is located on Park Avenue between the Bay View Library and the Bay View Post Office.
- 10:45 am – Assembly Worship in Hall Auditorium (June 11 – September 3, 2023)
When you arrive at the Bay View Campus you will notice the large building on Encampment Avenue called John M. Hall Auditorium. This is the location of Assembly Worship at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Please feel free to park anywhere within a designated parking space. There are multiple entrances to Hall Auditorium. Any one of them will bring you into our main worship service where one of our greeters will be there to welcome you and help you find your way.
Friday Night Sacred Vespers Services in Crouse Memorial Chapel
The word, “vespers” comes from the Latin, meaning “evening star”. Vespers is one of the oldest services in the Christian tradition. These services will include hymns, psalms, moments of prayer and quiet reflection. Join us for any – or all – of these meaningful opportunities for worship.
June 23, 2023 at 7 p.m.
July 21, 2023 at 7 p.m.
August 18, 2023 at 7 p.m.
“Let my prayer be counted as incense before Thee,
and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice!”
At Bay View there is no dress code. If you like to dress up, dress up. If you don’t, don’t. We want our guests to feel comfortable when attending our services, so please come as you are!
Nursery (June 11 – September 3, 2023)
We offer childcare every Sunday for children ages 0 – 3, between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Located in Loud Hall, our Nursery is staffed by a Professional Caregiver and an Assistant. Loud Hall is located just steps from both worship spaces, on the main campus next to the Library.
