a baptist congregation at the virginia beach oceanfront
Sunday gatherings begin with a biscuit and coffee breakfast in the social hall at 9:15 am. During this time congregants connect with each other, and God... even if unaware! At 9:45 am we go to Sunday School. There is a class for everyone! In Sunday School participants learn and grow as they study the Bible and reflect on Christ together!
Worship begins at 11 am in the sanctuary. Our worship service is comprised of congregational singing, prayer, scriptures and reflection. We sing traditional hymns as well as upbeat contemporary choruses. Our practice of prayer includes spoken prayers as well as praying in silence. Sermons are derived through scriptures and are both challenging and thought provoking. Pastor Steve's style is confessional in style and conversational in form. Communion is observed the first Sunday of each month. We practice open communion, which means regardless of where or if you are a church member, if you are a Jesus follower we invite you to participate in communion with us!
Worship services here are geared to creating both space and intimacy for the worshiper to connect with God and other worshipers. Dress is diverse, so come as you are. You are both invited and encouraged to join us!
Pizza and Grace small group meets this Tuesday at 6:30 pm in the social hall. Currently we are considering Reel Faith --a movie clip, scripture text and prayer that are weaved together to help teach the theme. This is an informal discussion group that enjoys listening for God as we connect with each other! Open to all, each is invited, please come join us!
Our midweek service this Wednesday begins with dinner at 6 pm in the social hall followed by the Bible study "After Death, What Comes Next?" led by Pastor Steve at 6:30 pm. Dinner will be spaghetti and meat balls, hot bread, garden salad and dessert. We ask for a small donation of $5 to help offset the cost of this meal. Reservations are needed and can be made by calling the church off (7574286562). Please join us!

This Sunday we reflect on John 13:31-35 and consider the message In the Meantime, Love. It is my hope and prayer that this will be a time of refreshment and renewal for you! -P.Steve
We welcome you as you seek to connect with the God of all grace and mercy.
