Here Again

April 16, 2023
Pastor Bria Gilmore
HERE AGAIN I. HE SHOWS UP AGAIN. John 21:4-6 (NIV) Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?” “No,” they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. II. HE DRAWS US AGAIN. John 21:7-8 (NIV) Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. III. HE MEETS EVERY NEED AGAIN. John 21:9-14 (NIV) When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Easter at Bay Chapel | Where It All Started

April 9, 2023
Pastor Wes Morris
Easter | April 9, 2023 Luke 24:1-7 (NLT) But very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.” √ PAST MISTAKES √ THE PRESSURE OF LIFE √ DISAPPOINTMENT I Peter 1:18-19 (NLT) For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. WHERE IT ALL STARTED I. THE CROSS REMINDS US THAT WE ARE FORGIVEN. Isaiah 53:6 (TLB) We—every one of us—have strayed away like sheep! We left God’s path to follow our own. Yet God laid on him the guilt and sins of every one of us! II. THE EMPTY TOMB REMINDS US THAT DEATH IS DEFEATED. Revelation 21:4-5 (TLB) He will wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor pain. All of that has gone forever. And the one sitting on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new!” III. THE RESURRECTION REMINDS US THAT WE HAVE NEW LIFE. Hebrews 12:1-2 (NLT) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. I Peter 1:3 (MSG) What a God we have! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole. —--- Subscribe to receive our latest messages. —— Stay Connected, ask for prayer and find out more. —— Bay Chapel exists to help people ‘Find God and Find Life’ through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

In The Middle

April 2, 2023
Pastor Wes Morris
April 2, 2023 | Pastor Wes Morris Current Series Resources: In The Middle | April 2, 2023 Luke 23:50-54 (NIV) Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. √ THERE IS ALWAYS A GAP BETWEEN THE PAIN AND THE PROMISE. √ WHILE WE ARE WAITING, JESUS IS WORKING. Colossians 2:13-15 (ERV) You were spiritually dead because of your sins and because you were not free from the power of your sinful self. But God gave you new life together with Christ. He forgave all our sins. Because we broke God’s laws, we owed a debt—a debt that listed all the rules we failed to follow. But God forgave us of that debt. He took it away and nailed it to the cross. He defeated the rulers and powers of the spiritual world. With the cross he won the victory over them and led them away, as defeated and powerless prisoners for the whole world to see. IN THE MIDDLE I. WE WAIT PATIENTLY. Romans 5:3-4 (TLB) We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us—they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of character in us... Habakkuk 2:2-3 (NLT) Then the Lord said to me, “Write my answer plainly on tablets, so that a runner can carry the correct message to others. This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed. II. WE WAIT EXPECTANTLY. Isaiah 40:27-31 (TLB) Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? The eternal God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t grow tired or become weary. His understanding is beyond reach. He gives strength to those who grow tired and increases the strength of those who are weak. Even young people grow tired and become weary, and young men will stumble and fall. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. III. WE WAIT CONFIDENTLY. I Corinthians 15:55-58 (TLB) O death, where is your victory? Where is your sting? For sin—the sting that causes death—will all be gone; and the law, which reveals our sins, will no longer be our judge. How we thank God for all of this! It is he who makes us victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord! So, my dear brothers, since future victory is sure, be strong and steady, always abounding in the Lord’s work, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever wasted.

The Jesus Way | Part 6 March 19, 2023 | Pastor Bria Gilmore Current Series Resources: The Way of the Table Luke‬ ‭5‬:‭27‬-‭32‬ ‭ESV - “After this he went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax booth. And he said to him, “Follow me.” And leaving everything, he rose and followed him. And Levi made him a great feast in his house, and there was a large company of tax collectors and others reclining at the table with them. And the Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” And Jesus answered them, “Those who well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” -- Notes from today’s message: —--- Subscribe to receive our latest messages. —— Stay Connected, ask for prayer and find out more. —— Bay Chapel exists to help people ‘Find God and Find Life’ through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Jesus Way: The Way of the Vine

Pastor Wes Morris
Current Series Resources: The Way of the Vine John 15:1-4 (NLT) I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

The Jesus Way: The Way of the Wine

March 5, 2023
Pastor Joey Sarlo
Current Series Resources: Luke 5:36-39 - He told them this parable: “No one tears a piece out of a new garment to patch an old one. Otherwise, they will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.’” The Way of Jesus is to bring something NEW to your life even today! ✓ NEW WINE FOR NEW WORSHIP ✓ NEW WINE FOR NEW WISDOM ✓ NEW WINE FOR NEW WONDERS

The Jesus Way: The Way to a Blessed Life

February 26, 2023
Pastor Wes Morris
The Jesus Way | Part 2 Current Series Resources: The Way of Jesus is often the opposite of our way! The lessons He taught during the sermon on the mount showed us many things, but we focus on a couple today: ✓ It reminds us where true joy is found. ✓ It reveals what can be ours if we follow God’s plan. In this message Pastor Wes reveals what we can really learn from this passage in Matthew and how God’s way is always different and better than our way. We hope you’ll be encouraged by this message! Matthew 5:1-11 (NIV) Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. He said: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

The Jesus Way: The Way of the Water

February 19, 2023
Pastor Bria Gilmore
The Jesus Way | Part 1 Current Series Resources: The Way of Jesus is often the opposite of our way! The lessons He taught while on earth were not cookie-cutter… they were often: ✓ Unexpected ✓ Uncomfortable In this message Pastor Bria kicks off this series about the life and way of Jesus talking about His decision to be Baptized by John and how John had to “get out of the way” in order to be a good follower of Jesus… not too unlike our lives today. We hope you’ll be encouraged by this message! “The Jesus Way STARTS with the water and is MARKED by the Holy Spirit.” Mark 1:7-13 (NIV) - And this was [John the Baptist’s] message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.
