Sunday Worship Environment
Each Sunday service starts off with singing. SBBC has a full band with a variety of musical styles. You will notice the band and worship team plays a mix of updated hymns along with current songs and choruses. A Volunteer Minister will welcome and greet the congregation with an inspirational thought and prayer. At that point, our Pastor gives a 30-35 minute message designed to be relevant, inspirational, and useful to daily life. We end with a few announcements for the week, the offering, and usually a special song sung by the band or a soloist.
Get Everything You Really Want
Getting what we want is tricky for a lot of reasons. On Back to Church Sunday on September 16, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m., South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is beginning a new teaching series entitled Success: Get Everything You Really Want.
What do you want? Is it a what? Perhaps it's a who. Maybe it's a state of mind. Are you sure it's what or who you really want? Did you know you’ll never get what you really want until you discover what you really value?
“In this series, we’ll discover, we get what we really want when we pursue what is of greatest value,” said Martin Hawley, pastor.
In addition to the launch of Success, South Bay is celebrating “Back to Church Sunday,” which is part of a national movement of churches across America. Everyone is welcome to attend and invited to a free lunch catered by LaVolpe Restaurant after the 11:00 a.m. service.
In this four-part study, Pastor Hawley reveals how to get success and everything you really want in life.
- Do You Know What You Really Want? (James 4:1-3) – September 16: If you don't know what you really want, you'll probably end up with exactly what you don't want. We all have wants. But actually getting what we want can be tricky . . . and even dangerous. It usually leaves us wanting more. If what we want leads to a cycle of wanting more and more, maybe we want the wrong things. So, what do you really want?
- Choose Wisely (Romans 7:15–16, 18–19; Galatians 5:19–21 (NLT); James 1:14–16) – September 23: What we naturally want is rarely what we ultimately want. We’ll never get what we really want until we discover what is most valuable. But choosing what’s valuable isn’t natural. We’ve all had the experience of getting what we naturally want, only to discover it's not what is most valuable—it’s not what we ultimately want. But how do we avoid being deceived by our short-term desires?
- Last Things First (Romans 7:15; Galatians 5:22-23, 25-26) – September 30: Discover what you value, value what you discover, and don't be surprised if you discover God in the process. What do you want? What do you really want? We’ll never get what we really want until we discover what is most valuable. And what we naturally want is often in conflict with what we ultimately value. So, in order to figure out what you really want, you have to figure out what you value.
- Think It Through (Romans 12:1-2) – October 7: We get what we really want when we surrender to what God really wants for us. What you naturally want is often in conflict with what you ultimately value. But your heavenly Father knows what you need. He wants for you what you really want. So, how do you put aside those natural wants and pursue what you ultimately value?
Why God Became One of Us
Christians believe many crazy things-including that God showed up in a human body and lived among humankind. But why? Join us at South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, on Sundays, beginning November 18, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. for this new teaching series: Why God Became One of Us.
Why would God want to become one of us and live in a world like ours? A world of anxiety … A world of chaos … A world of heartache … Why would God leave the comfort and recognition of heaven to live in this world? Pastor Hawley targets this perplexing question in this four-part series, Why God Became One of Us.
- Jesus Came to Communicate and Demonstrate (John 1:14; 14:1-11; 1:18) – November 18: Why would God leave the comfort and recognition of heaven to live on this ball of dirt in a time when the best of conditions barely paralleled the worst of modern-day conditions – before morphine, before air conditioning, and before indoor plumbing? Why? We think we know why he died, but what compelled him to live as one of us?
- Jesus Came to Show Us God (John 1:14, 18; 9:1-38) – November 25: If there is a God, we all want to know what he's like. We're curious. We tend to look at nature, outer space, or within ourselves to find clues about him. However, it only provides us with an incomplete picture. Jesus made a radical claim. He said if you want to know about God, look no further than him. If you've seen the Son, you've seen the Father.
- Jesus Came to Elevate (John 1:14; Luke 7:39-40; Romans 5:7-8) – December 2: We've all been picked on for something we had no control over. It's dehumanizing. In all likelihood, you've also picked on others. It's such a strange thing. It's such a human thing. The easiest way to feel superior is to find a person or group we think is inferior and power up. We've probably all been guilty of this outwardly or inwardly. One of the reasons Jesus came into the world was to change all that.
4. Jesus Came to Put Religion in Its Place (John 1:14; Mark 2:24, 27; Isaiah 1:11-17; Matthew 22:37-40) – December 9: We want answers for life's mysteries. Is there an afterlife? Will I see my mom again? What does the Bible say about divorce? Religion tries to answer those questions. Religion is about answers, order, and predictability. Unfortunately, life isn't about any of those things. Life can be messy. Religion has a place in our lives, but Jesus taught us it shouldn't be in first place. When religion takes first place, it begins flexing its muscles at the expense of mercy. Jesus came to put religion in its place.
