Small Groups Teach Devotion Life
On Sunday nights our small group leaders will be teaching our church how to have a daily devotional life. This is an excellent opportunity for new believers to build new habits and for experienced members to share how God uses your daily time in your walk with Him. Join a small group on Sundays at 6:00 p.m. to learn more how we improve our corporate worship with our private worship. We have small groups for all ages.
Share the gospel, then call the church to celebrate. 281-968-4769
Sharing the Gospel - Telling the Church
We have shared the gospel with 60 people during our evangelism campaign for the year! Don't forget to pray toward and seize those opportunities this week to tell others about Jesus. Then call the evangelism hotline at 281-968-4769 so our staff can pray and we can celebrate with the whole church on Sunday.

Ministry to Children
Ministry to Children

In 2017 Bayou Drive will continue to emphasize and grow ministry to children. Nathan Duke, our Director of Children's Ministry, met with interested members to lay out a plan for the next year. Recently, Thom Rainer, President of Lifeway, suggested 11 ways to strengthen our care for children. Among his top suggestions are the recruitment and training for enthusiastic children's workers.

If you are interested in being a part of this tremendous growth opportunity in our church, contact Nathan Duke for more information on how to get involved.
