Abraham Lincoln. Adolf Hitler. Elon Musk. None of them more famous than the Jewish Carpenter from Nazareth. How did this tiny baby grow up to be the most influential person to ever live? South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce the start of The Real Jesus: Rediscover The Most Famous Man in History on Sunday, December 5, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Join us in person or online at southbaychurchli.org/livestream, Facebook Live, or YouTube.
“Some will say that Jesus is irrelevant to life in our day, but I would suggest that He is the most relevant and talked-about man in the world” said Matt Horne, lead pastor.
Whether you consider yourself a church person or not, you’re invited to join us for this three-part series, The Real Jesus, as Pastor Matt invites us to discover who Jesus really is.
1. Word in Flesh (Luke 4:14-22; John 1:1-14; Hebrews 1:1-4) – December 5: When it comes to the most famed man to ever walk the earth, where does one begin to share his story? Well, perhaps the best place to start would be about 1400 years before his birth. The Jewish people had long awaited this baby boy, as he would grow up to be the prophet who would finally speak for the people.
2. Servant unto Death (Isaiah 53; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 9:11-14) – December 12: When the people of Jesus’ time began to interact with him, he was much different than they hoped and expected. They expected a governmental figure who would be a warrior for them. Jesus chose the path of a servant, one who would suffer for the glory of God and the joy of the people, even unto his own death.
3. Heaven on Earth (Isaiah 55; Mark 1:14-15; Colossians 1:15-20) – December 19: Jesus grew up and had an important announcement to make. Most of his life and ministry would be centered on promoting this announcement – “The Kingdom of God has come!” What did he mean by this? It’s not a place and it’s more than an idea. It’s good news.
Can you hear the bells? Can you smell the pine? It’s almost that time and we can’t wait! The Christmas season is coming upon us and while we have been planning and praying for the ministry opportunities for reaching our local community, we have also thought of a special and unique way to minister to the families from within our church.
We know how tiring this season can be for the volunteers and families within our church. After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to cancel all services on Sunday, December 26th. In appreciation for all the church volunteers, please relax and enjoy the morning with your family. Services will resume on Sunday, January 2, 2022.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will do our best answer your question within a day or two.
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.
