Opportunity: Today’s Decisions Tomorrow’s Realities

Time moves faster and faster the older we become. In fact, life is far too short to make foolish decisions. One bad decision can take years to overcome. That’s why South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is beginning a new series, Opportunity: Today’s Decisions Tomorrow’s Realities, on National Back to Church weekend – Saturday, September 14, at 5:00 p.m., and Sunday, September 15, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.
If you’re not sure how to get where you what to go, ask someone who’s been there. If you heed the advice, chances are … you’ll be glad you did!
“Wise and discerning people understand today’s decisions become tomorrow’s realities,” said Martin Hawley, senior pastor. Visit South Bay Bible Church to learn how to make the most of every opportunity in this new four-part series.

  1. Labels People Place on Us (Romans 12:2) – September 14-15: Labels are powerful things. The labels people put on you could cause you to miss God’s plan for your life. We all wear labels. Many of the labels we wear were placed on us by others - parents, siblings, friends, teachers, coaches, or coworkers. But what if we're carrying around the wrong labels? Who has the right to label you? Who are you going to allow to label you? Who knows best how to label you? Labels create expectations and expectations influence the direction of our lives.

  2. Today's Decisions Tomorrow's Realities (Matthew 7:24; 15:17–20, 1 Corinthians 6:18–20) – September 21-22: Get out of debt, stay out of bed, and clean out your closet. You'll be glad you did … Or you'll wish you had. Today's decisions become tomorrow's realities. Wise and discerning people understand that. They choose to live as if life is connected, as if each decision matters. That's because they know that their present becomes their past that shapes their future. In each season of life, we make decisions that shape what our lives look like in the next season.

  3. Marriages that Pray Together _______ _______. (Ephesians 5:21-22, 25; James 3:13-17) – September 28-29: Couples who pray together are more likely to stay together. No one likes to be wrong. No one likes to be told what to do. But insisting you're always right isn't a recipe for a great marriage. Great marriages are built on humility . . . on the willingness of both spouses to submit to each other and to God. But how do you do that? It all begins with prayer.

  4. Investment Opportunity (Matthew 25:19-21, 26) – October 5-6: The longer you live, the more you'll have to give. Invest your time in those coming along behind. The value of your life is determined by how much of it you give away. Our culture says life's value is found in what we achieve or what we accumulate. But those things eventually fade away. We each have a treasure chest full of life experiences that will die with us unless we become intentional about distributing our wealth. The value of your life is found when we share those experiences.

#Adulting: Growing Up in God

Do you ever get frustrated when the abundant life Jesus promised doesn’t seem to be your reality? South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce the start of #Adulting: Growing Up in God beginning Saturday, October 26, at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 27, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. This series presents five keys to help you grow in your faith, discover true abundant life, and get fresh hope for daily living.

There’s a direct link between obedience to God and joy in life. Living for God the way He designed is where one finds true satisfaction and purpose in life. “In lofty theological terms, we call this sanctification,” says Matt Horne, associate pastor, “but in real life, we just call it growing up.”

Whether you consider yourself a church person or not, consider this five-part series, #Adulting, as Pastors Martin Hawley and Matt Horne seek to clarify what it means to be planted and to grow in Christ.

  1. Foundations (John 15:1-8; 1 John 2:3-6; Colossians 2:6-14) – October 26-27: When talking about “growing up in God,” where do we start? In order to grow up, we must first start with the foundation. This foundation is finding ourselves in Christ. What does it mean to be in Christ? It involves placing our trust in God and surrendering our way of living for the new, abundant life Jesus promises. God redeems our past and redefines our future. We live with new hope. We walk a new path.
  2. The Family of God (Ephesians 4:1-16; Hebrews 10:19-25; Acts 2:42) – November 2-3: One of God’s greatest gifts given to people is the gift of community. Even if you take the spirituality out of it, everyone appreciates having people around them to encourage and push them forward. It’s nice to have a hand to hold when journeying through this thing called “life.” In the Christian faith, we call this the family of God – the church. What is the church really all about, and why do we need it?
  3. The Word and The Way (Psalm 119; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12) – November 9-10: What do you think when you hear the word Bible? Unfortunately, it can give haunting thoughts to some. For those who know and love God, the Bible is the primary way in which we learn more about who He is and how we should live. The Bible is both historical and theological. The question is this: What use is the Bible to us now?

  4. Living Sent (Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 10:13-15; Acts 1:8) – November 16-17: Many people can remember the final words of a loved one who recently passed away. Jesus’ final words before ascending into Heaven became known as the Great Commission. The church is called to go and bring hope to all people because of Christ. This could mean crossing an ocean or crossing your cubicle.

  5. Open Heart, Open Hands (James 4:13-17; 2 Corinthians 5:14-21; Romans 12:1-2) – November 23-24: It’s the desire of all humanity to lead their own life. The ultimate identifier of one who has trusted his or her life to God is surrender for the cause of Christ. There is abundant life and joy found in laying down our own will and desire for His.

Weekend Sunday Worship FAQs

We want your first experience at South Bay Bible Church to be uplifting and positive, so we have compiled a few commonly asked questions. 
If you have a question that is not listed, please email your question to 
info@sbbcli.org, and we will do our best answer your question within a day or two.

We have two Sunday services: 9:00 & 11:00 a.m.
We also have services online anytime.
We also have 
Community Groups that meet throughout the week at various times.

We start 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 Senior 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, offering, and usually a special song. 

Walk in the doors at SBBC, and you will see a wide variety of clothing choices, from shorts and flip-flops (in the summer of course) to dresses and ties. Be comfortable! The pastor does not even wear a coat and tie! What's most important is that you come to meet with God, lean in, and listen to what He has to teach you. We want the service to be our gift to you and for you to leave knowing God loves you, and it's not about what you wear.

We have a nursery for newborns to four years old that begins 15 minutes before the Sunday morning service. We also have Kid's Club for kindergarten through fifth grade that begins after the music during the Sunday morning service. After the music, we call all the children forward in the service, pray for them, and send them to the Kid's Club area with trained teachers for a lesson on their level. We take the safety and security of your child very seriously. All children's workers undergo a full criminal (national) background check.

We have five ways you can get involved in the church right away. First, let us WELCOME you to one of our regular services on Sunday at 8:00, 9:30, 11:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m., or online anytime.  Second, CONNECT with us in the orientation class, which is offered one time every month. The time and place is on the church calendar and announced at our services. Third, GROW with us at a Community Connection group. These are groups of eight to twelve people who meet weekly to study the Bible and live life together. Fourth, SERVE with us by joining with a church ministry team. Fifth, INVITE someone to church or win someone to Jesus. Click on the Welcome, Connect, Grow, Serve, and Invite links for more information in each of these areas.
