It might just be more than coincidental scheduling, that our word this week during the “Seven Words” weekend teaching series is SERVE. With the NorCal fires tragically hitting Santa Rosa and surrounding areas, it’s a perfect opportunity to bring our prayers, time, and resources together to assist the thousands of people who are affected by these terrible fires. Pastor Ray shares the status of what Bayside’s doing to bring a little hope and encouragement to these precious people.

Pastor Ray Johnston has a rich and varied background as a university and graduate-school professor, speaker, writer, and founder of Thrive Communications. He is also the founding pastor of Bayside Church in the Sacramento, California suburb of Granite Bay, which Ray describes as “a church for people who don’t like church.” Bayside has grown into one of the largest churches in the nation with more than 12,000 people coming together every weekend at the Granite Bay campus and thousands more in multiple affiliated churches throughout the Sacramento region.
