A Note from JANES Women's Ministry Leader!

Dear Janes,


We are off and rolling!  Most of our Bevies and Bible Studies have kicked off and I am already hearing great things about what God is doing in your groups.  Please know that it is not too late to join in!  All of our ministries are listed on the JANES Blog.  Hop on over and see what's going on!


I'm praying that God would move mightily in your lives. "So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised" (Hebrews 10:35-36 NIV).


Love You All,



Men of Bay Area Fellowship
Let your husbands, brothers, fathers, sons, friends and co-workers know about Bay Area Fellowship's new Men's Ministry (MoB)!

I've heard it said that a man will be accountable to God or he will just be accountable to himself. Certainly, we will all be called into account one day by the Father.

So who is helping to keep you real? Who is the person that you have 24 hour a day access with? Maybe, you don't have that relationship yet. Here's a great way to get started.

First, plug into one of the many men's groups that are available. This is one of the easiest steps and you will find that many of us struggle with the same things. I have seen God use these groups to help change and impact lives. My life included.
Next, prioritize your time to include meeting regularly.
Then, allow yourself to be transparent and real. It's one of the bravest things you will ever do.

Jeremy Camp --
JANES was There!

Jeremy Camp came to town and rocked out at Corpus Christi Fellowship. Jeremy's heart for God came through in his great music. Many times he would stop the concert  to answer some personal questions from the audience. He shared his wonderful testimony about the inspiration God gave him after his wife died. After a few weeks of his resistance to playing music, God told Jeremy to go and pickup his guitar.  A lot of his music was written after this time. Just listen to the words of his music. This was the best concert I have been to. He has a great voice.

Mother - Daughter Breakfast & Book Club

The Mother-Daughter Breakfast & Book Club's purpose is to give moms and their 'tweenage' girls (ages 9-13) an opportunity to deepen their relationship.  We realize that the stronger our bonds with our daughters are, the more likely they will be in talking to us about their issues as they hit the sometimes tumultuous teenage years.  We discuss issues such as self-esteem, standing up for your beliefs, and peer pressure- all over breakfast in a fun non-judgemental atmosphere.

The current discussion book is What's A Girl To Do- finding faith in everday life, which is a devotional. We will be deciding on a non-fiction book to read together for our next meeting.
