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.
A Man After God's Heart
Humble shepherd. Giant-slayer. Gifted poet. Mighty warrior. Flawed man. Legendary leader. David is one of history's most famous kings. But more important, he was a man after God's own heart.
On Sunday, January 6, 2019, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m., South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is beginning a new teaching series entitled A Man After God’s Heart.
“In this series, we’ll discover, five of the most important lessons of life from one of the greatest men who ever lived,” said Martin Hawley, pastor.
In this study, Pastor Hawley will reveal life lessons from his favorite Bible character – King David.
- What Made David Great (1 Samuel 17:1-4, 7-11; 8:1-7; 17:11, 26, 36-37; Psalm 25:1, 3, 5) – January 6: David went from humble shepherd to national hero to great king. But he wasn't great because of his reputation or military prowess. He was great because of where he'd learned to place his hope.
- Giant Killer (1 Samuel 20:30–31; 21:1–4, 6, 8–9; 17:47; 22:10–11, 13–17, 22; Psalm 9:9–10; Matthew 11:28–29) – January 13: The way of God is most unappealing when we are angry, isolated, or afraid. That’s when we consider things we would never otherwise consider. It's when we feel compelled to do something . . . anything. But maybe there's a better way.
- Revenge! (1 Samuel 25:2-42; 1 Peter 3:9-11; Matthew 5:43-44) – January 20: The way of God isn't appealing when we have been wronged by someone else. Our natural urge is to try to get even. We want to wrong the people who wrong us as a way of getting payback. That seems just. It seems fair. But does it solve anything? Maybe there’s a better way.
- Becoming an Inspiring Leader (1 Samuel 16:6-12; 18:18; 24:4-6, 12-13; 26:7-11; 2 Samuel 4:8-12; 5:1-4; John 13:1-5, 14-15; Mark 10:45) – January 27: Few things are as repulsive as a leader, parent, boss, or politician who leverages influence for his or her benefit to the neglect of whom he or she is responsible. Few things inspire more than a leader who says no to himself or herself in order to say yes to those for whom he or she is responsible. So how can we lead well when authority is placed in our hands?
- What to do with Failed Dreams (2 Samuel 12:11-13; 13:12-15; 14:32; 15:10, 23-26; 17:7-9; 18:5-8, 19; Psalm 25:1, 5) – February 3: Plans are great. Reality is greater. Reality wins. Things don’t always go as planned. Some dreams don’t come true. So, what do you do when you discover your dream can’t come true?
The Lord's Prayer:
Have you ever struggled to pray? Join us at South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, on Sundays, beginning February 10, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. for a new teaching series: The Lord’s Prayer.
We are constantly tempted to selfish and religious prayer lives. Religion creeps in because we want to score and earn points with God, and selfishness enters our heart because we usually want our way. When these two things collide, we end up drifting away from God and lowering who God is in our minds to some cosmic genie-in-the-sky waiting to serve our every desire. This tends to make us think of prayer as nothing more than pulling the lever in some heavenly vending machine.
This series helps followers of Jesus break the cycle of prayerless praying and develop a close, committed prayer life. “Don’t just pray when you’re desperate or need something; instead, build a true relationship with God and learn to spend time with Him on a consistent basis,” says Martin Hawley, senior pastor.
The Lord’s Prayer will consist of the following six messages:
- Our Father’s Protection (Matthew 6:13) – March 17: All sin seems pleasurable for a season, but in the end, it often wreaks havoc in our lives. Then, instead of going a different direction, we end up going back and doing the same thing all over again! What if there were a way to escape the cycle of madness and self-destruction? In this part of the Lord’s prayer, Jesus gives us a secret ingredient to tap into the protection of our heavenly Father.
- Our Father’s Credit (Matthew 6:12) – March 10: A debt is created every time we mess up, miss perfection, and sin. It’s a spiritual debt, and it must be paid. This is our greatest need even above our daily bread and basic needs in life. The good news is a provision has been made, and here, Jesus tells how to access our Father’s credit and pay a debt we could never pay on our own.
- Our Father Cares (Matthew 6:11) – February 24: God is the marvelous Creator of the entire universe. Does God really care about the details of our daily lives? Does He have the time to notice little me? In this part of the Lord’s prayer, Jesus teaches us that bread is symbolic for everything we need for life including food, a healthy body, good weather, a house, our relationships, peace, and safety just to name a few, and as we’ll learn, God really does care!
- Our Father’s Will (Matthew 6:10) – February 17: A big reason many are not able to pray with confidence is they don’t know what to pray for. This is where Jesus steps in and teaches us to pray in a different direction. The real business of prayer is not necessarily getting what I want; it’s getting what God wants in Heaven done on earth.
- Our Father (Matthew 6:9) – February 10: Jesus came to show us the Father and revealed him as Abba or daddy. Have you ever thought of God in those terms? Yet in the very same sentence, Jesus reminds us of God’s unapproachable, perfect holiness. Which is it? Could it be both? Almighty God is our Holy, Exalted heavenly daddy.
- Our Father’s Supremacy (Matthew 6:13b) – March 24: Most end their prayers with Amen, but Jesus gives us a different, more appropriate way to conclude our time of prayer in a powerful remembrance of what God is all about. Try this, and you’ll be surprised how your heart and mind will be more aligned with God Almighty.
Join us this Sunday for a special look into God's Word!
