Sunday Worship

Sunday Morning EnvironmentSunday 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.

Losing Your Religion?

What if you’ve been looking for God in all the wrong places?

 

On Easter Sunday, April 1, at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00, and 4:00, South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is challenging our community to Losing Your Religion?: What If You’ve been Looking for God in All the Wrong Places? You see, religion can get pretty strange pretty quickly. Mystical. Superstitious. Legalistic. Judgmental. Hypocritical. But religion isn't going away.

 

The human race has an insatiable curiosity regarding the divine. Since the beginning of time, men and women have established elaborate rituals and traditions in an attempt to bridge the gap between the seen and the unseen; between the sacred and the secular.

 

And while each of these systems provided formulas for communicating with and securing the blessings of a particular deity, none provided the one thing humankind most desires—assurance. But with the birth of Christianity, all of that changed.

 

In this 4-part message series, Pastor Hawley explains how the message of Christ serves as the fulfillment of religion.

  1. Reflections of a Zealot (Acts 26:9-18) – April 1: Religion exists to control you. Jesus came to restore you.

    Losing faith is part of the human experience. We all know someone who lost faith. And if we're honest, we'll agree that there are many reasons to lose faith--from all the harm that has been done in the name of religion to wondering if God really hears our prayers. But, what if we lose faith for the wrong reasons? What if we have been looking for God in all the wrong places?

  2. Just In Case (Acts 17:16-34) – April 8: Jesus did not show up to give answers as much as to be the answer. Religion asks, "Who's right?" Christianity asks, "Who's Jesus?" Religion asks, "What's true?" Christianity asks, "What happened?"

    Religion can be weird. Odd cultic behavior. Faces of religious icons appearing in random places. Fanatical rules and restrictions to follow in order to be "good." Are these all misguided attempts by religious nuts to connect with God? Are we trying too hard to make sense of something so big and mysterious? How is what Jesus offers any different?

  3. The Eight Commandments (Romans 8:1-4) – April 15: All religions aren't wrong. They’re just incomplete. They lead to our need for a Savior.

    A famous Christian author wrote that the world's major religions have eight major themes, eight commandments in common. That list included loving others ... respecting others ... and being honest ... among other ethical standards. So in light of those eight commandments, what makes Christianity so different?

  4. Unfair and Uncomfortable (Romans 5:6-8) – April 22: Fairness isn't an argument.

    Every religion recognizes our failures. In fact, we can label our failures as "mistakes," but there's no denying that everyone falls short. Maybe it's unfair that we don't measure up, but it's true. Maybe it's uncomfortable that we needed help to get out of our mess, but it's true. The reality is this – we live in a broken world, and we're a part of it. So what did God do about that?

Pride-640x200

Pride

How to See It, and What to do About It.

Pride is something that rises up in each of us. It keeps us from apologizing, admitting we’re wrong, or showing any weakness. It keeps us from forgiving. It causes us to lie about our past, to cheat instead of lose, and to feel happy when someone else fails. It not only stands in the way of our relationships with other people, but it also stands in the way of our relationship with God.

 

Starting on Sunday, April 29, at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00, and 4:00, South Bay Bible Church, will begin a new, three-part series entitled, Pride: How to See It, and What to do About It at 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches.

 

“Pride. It shuts us in and shuts God and others out. It keep you from saying what needs to be said and hearing what needs to be heard. It’s so destructive in our lives,” says Martin Hawley, pastor. In the following three messages, you’ll learn how to kill your pride and clear the way to good relationships with God and others:

 

1. Saying No to Pride (Psalm 10:4; Philippians 2:7-8) – April 29: Pride crowds God and others out of your life.

 

Pride is a sin that is so common to the human experience, and it is the gateway to all other sins. It promises to make us bigger, better, and more important, but it only makes us smaller, meaner, and less significant. It strips us of our capacity to connect with others. It stands between us and our heavenly Father.

 

2. The Three P's (Luke 16) – May 6: Power, Prestige, and Possessions. They're from God, and they're for His glory and benefit.

 

Maybe you’re a “Three P” person—you have power, prestige, and possessions. You have influence. You are envied. People take you seriously because of what you’ve accomplished, what you look like, or to whom you’re married. There’s nothing wrong with being a “Three P” person. But when it comes to pride, “Three P” people face a unique challenge.

 

3. Remember Who It's For (Mark 1:4-5; John 1:15, 19-27, 29, 35-37; 3:26-28, 30-31) – May 13: Where's pride from and what's it for?

 

We all want to be friended, followed, liked, and mentioned. We all want to be recognized, admired, sought after, and envied. We hunger for approval. We want applause. We want to be known. But what do you do when there is no amount of “known” that will satisfy your appetite?
