  • Dawnings Session 4 will be on Wednesday, August 11th.  We greatly appreciate your prayers as we spend time listening to and seeing what God has next for Bayshore.  “How do you feel when you know you are living out God’s will?”, and “How is our church NOW engaging in God’s dream for the world?” are questions we will be grappling with next.  Remember to pray for Tammy, Dina, Sandi, Katie, Alaina, Christina, Joan TJ, Robert, Mel, Jeff, and Steve.
