#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) – November 2-3: 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 9-10: One of God’s greatest gifts to us 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 16-17: 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 23-24: 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 30 - December 1: 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.

Why Christmas?

The Backstory Behind the Main Story

Why Christmas? Do we really need Christmas? Seriously, why Christmas? As it turns out, we all need it! South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is beginning a new series, Why Christmas? on Saturday, December 7, at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 8, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.

The Christmas story doesn’t begin with two folks who can’t find a place to have their baby. It doesn’t start in Matthew or Luke. The Christmas story is an unbelievable, incoherent, impossible promise made 2,090 years before Christmas Day. The promise of Christmas was made to a man who chose to believe the unbelievable promise two thousand years before it ever came to be.

“The Christmas story is remarkable because it really does not begin with a couple who wasn’t sure how they got pregnant. It began with a couple who couldn’t get pregnant. It began with a couple who wasn’t sure if they would ever have a baby,” said Martin Hawley, pastor.

South Bay Bible Church invites the public to this three-part, unique learning opportunity.

1. Why the World Needed Christmas (Genesis 12:1-3; Isaiah 49:6; Malachi 1:11; Galatians 4:4; Luke 1:26-33) – December 7-8: The whole world would be blessed because the whole world needed blessing; it needed Christmas. You may find the events surrounding the birth of Jesus a bit unbelievable. If so, you're not alone. However, when you hear the entire story ­– the backstory – well, the whole thing is quite remarkable.

2. Why God Needed Christmas (Galatians 4:4-5; Romans 5:7-8; Acts 3:14-15; Matthew 1:20-23) – December 14-15: God staged a demonstration. The world needed an illustration. We needed to see it to believe it. As you know, love must be shown to be known. If you don't show it, nobody knows it. That’s the message of Christmas.

3. Why We Need Christmas (Matthew 1:18-21, 24; John 10:10, 4:13-14; Romans 6:12-14, 23) – December 21-22: Why Christmas? As it turns out, we all need Christmas. But it might not be for the reasons you think.

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.
