Enormous Church: How Church is Supposed to Be

Two thousand years ago, a gathering of people in a middle eastern city began a movement that would circle the globe and leave its mark on individuals and cultures on every continent. This movement eventually became known as The Church.

South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce the start of Enormous Church: How Church is Supposed to Be on Saturday, July 20, at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, July 21, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m., The church is a movement. And … it’s still moving.

Whether you consider yourself a church person or not, you’re invited to join us for this seven-part series, Enormous Church, as Pastor Hawley brings life to the story of the earliest gatherings of Christians.

1. Day One (Matthew 16:16-18; Acts 1:6-8; Acts 2) – July 20-21: The church was born as a movement. It’s still moving. What comes to mind when you hear the word "church"? In the first century, they didn't think building, rows, pews, robes, hymnals, bands, or liturgy because they had none of that. Church was simply a multiplying, multicultural gathering of people who came together around one belief: Jesus is the risen Christ, the Savior of the world, the son of the living God.

2. Enormous Prayers (Acts 4) – July 27-28: Small prayers are for small churches. How we pray is an indication of if we’ve strayed. If God answered all the prayers you prayed last year, would there be much of a difference in the lives of anyone other than you and your family? The first century church prayed big, bold, brave, and broad prayers that at times got them into some trouble.

3. Enormous & Bold (Acts 4-5) – August 3-4: Why can’t Christians just leave people alone? Good news, most Christians do just that. If Christians had been doing what we're supposed to, things would be much different. But, we got busy. We got distracted. We got safe. Don't be an undercover Christian. Don't be a secret Christian any longer.

4. Enormous Audience (Acts 5, 8, & 9) – August 10-11: The message of the church is a message for the world. The message for the world is Christ died for our sins. He was buried. He was raised, and He appeared. That's the message the first century church gave their lives for.

5. Enormous Drift (Acts 15) – August 17-18: We have to work hard not to be a church where grace and truth conflict but coexist. Let's be more concerned with who we are reaching rather than just who we are keeping. Let's always err on the side of grace. Let's remain openhanded. Let's follow what James, the brother of Jesus said and not make it difficult for those who are turning to God.

6. Enormous Answers (Galatians 5:16-23) – August 24-25: Does the church matter? Yes. We are stewards of the message of eternal life. And we are stewards of the message of a better life. What if suddenly all the teaching and ideas the church promotes and values vanished from society? What would the world look like? No value for human life. No grace. No forgiveness. No generosity. No sanctity of marriage. No sexual purity. No love! Think about the world without the church.

7. Enormous Opportunity (Acts 28) – August 31 & September 1: Enable us to speak your word with great boldness. Let's be bold with our invitations. Let's be bold with our volunteering. Let's be bold with our giving. Let's be bold with our prayers. Let's be bold with our love!

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.

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.
