Fall Season Sign Ups!
Groups Start September 17th
Community Groups are a midweek gathering of 6-12 people who commit to meeting weekly to encourage & support one another-- who dig deeper into the scripture our church is studying that week. A group of friends who push each other to live out the sermons we hear on Sundays and to keep growing through the adventure of trusting Jesus.
Check back for future dates!
Are you new to Oceanhills? We want to meet you! About once a quarter we gather after church for a Newcomers Lunch, so we can meet you and get to know your story. We love hearing about what you're looking for in a church and helping you get connected. This is also a great place for you to ask questions and we try to help you learn more about your church. Sign up for the next Newcomers Lunch- kids are totally welcome- just let us know who's coming, so we can be prepared for you.
Everyone is welcome at Oceanhills- we like to say you belong before you believe. So there's not pressure to be "all in" when you come to a Newcomers Lunch or church on a Sunday.

Worship Night: Praise, Prayer, & Practices
These evenings are designed to be like in-town mini-retreats to provide a space for you to get quieter and draw closer to the whispers of the Holy Spirit. Worship, pray, and experience new spiritual practices all designed to help each of us develop a deeper relationship with the living God. Bring your journal, a blanket or chair to sit on, and an open and willing spirit!
Church On The Beach
About three times every summer we head to East Beach together for our 10am Sunday gathering to worship on the sand! This is a staple Oceanhills summer experience and a great place to bring friends and family who have never experienced church outside! We do our baptisms in the ocean on these days, too! Our kids program is under a big covered tent with their leaders and adults and students hear the sermon and worship all together in the sun. Bring your beach chairs, blankets, sunglasses, hats, and a picnic lunch for a big community beach party afterwards!
Church On The Beach
Thinking about baptism? We're here to walk with you through this exciting season! This is an outward expression of something happening inside your heart and a special marker in your relationship with Jesus. In the summertime, we do baptisms in the ocean at Church On The Beach and we always provide a time for you to learn more about baptisms with someone from our team in a private or small group Baptism Orientation beforehand. We also offer baptisms on other Sundays in the fall and spring in the courtyard at The Marjorie Luke Theatre after church. If this is something that's been put on your heart, you can always learn more by emailing Pastor Jono at firstname.lastname@example.org.
