Bayside Community Church is launching its East Sarasota Campus services on Sunday to help give about 550 families from Sarasota a quicker drive to worship.
The church is located at the Real Life Center, 8893 Fruitville Road. Its other campus are at Bradenton Christian School at in Lakewood Ranch on Route 64.
Sunday worship services are at 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. Fusion middle school services are at the same time.
"We are so excited about what is happening at Bayside. So many are finding hope and vision here," Lead Pastor Randy Bezet said in a news release. "Some people are driving 35 minutes or more to attend services and so we are excited to be able to make it easier for them to go to church with the launch of this new campus. We look forward to serving the Sarasota community and reaching many more people with our East Sarasota Campus."
It makes sense for another campus, too, as Bayside is ranked as the 10th fastest growing church in America in 2011 by Outreach Magazine.
