Our Community Outreach:
Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey

While joyfully serving Jesus Christ, we seek to assist, support, and encourage others in our community.  We have chosen to partner with the Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey and support their goal of helping each woman understand her pregnancy options, make an informed choice, and provide encouragement and support through education, counseling, and aid. 

To acknowledge that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection. Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey offers compassion, hope, and help to anyone considering an abortion by presenting them with realistic alternatives and Christ-centered support through education, medical care, and empowerment.

Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey is a charitable, non-political, non-denominational, locally funded organization formed to help all persons who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. For over 20 years Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey has been serving men and women with a specific dedication to those most vulnerable to an abortion due to an unplanned pregnancy.

This summer executive director Rachael Morford will speak to our congregation about the good work Pregnancy Care Center does in our community, and share how the Bay Harbor Church is helping them achieve their goals.

Walking With Him 6

While Walking With Him 6 was established in 2006 as a platform to bring Hope to individuals who struggle with drug addiction, alcoholism, anxiety or depression by sharing the saving Grace of Jesus Christ. Through testimony, spoken word and teaching, Walking With Him 6 identifies how Redemption, Restoration and Recovery can only be found in Jesus Christ as the initiator of radical transformation of mind, body and spirit.
Walking With Him 6 started as a nationwide traveling ministry, where God faithfully and providentially opened doors and hearts to hear our message of hope to those in despair. Now, upon prayerful guidance and discerning the Lords call, we established a mission and vision to serve the northern Michigan community. As a 501(c)3 non-profit outreach ministry, we will meet the needs of individuals who have completed treatment and will provide a Christ-centered recovery orientated discipleship program. Additionally, with transitional living at a minimum in our area, Walking With Him 6 plans to acquire more properties and continue to plant more Faith Based Recovery Residences in Northern Michigan.
