At Seaside Community Church, the way that we "do church" may look a little different than church services that you're used to.
But that's because it seems to us that "church" was meant to be so much more than just a service!
Here's one example of how the Bible describes what "church" was like back at the very beginning of it:
All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
- Acts 2:44-47, NIV
That's why our SCC House Churches exist: to provide a time and place each week when we can meet in smaller gatherings to "be family" like Acts describes.
WHAT TO EXPECT @ SCC CELEBRATION SERVICES
On Wednesday nights, we hold 30-minute Celebration Worship Services at the Oldemeyer Center in Seaside (located at 986 Hilby Avenue), when our House Churches come together to worship God as one church family.
Our services begin with a short time of prayer, followed by 15-20 minutes of contemporary worship music lead by our SCC band.
Pastor Matt then teaches a short sermon, followed by a time of fellowship with food (for those who are able to stay).
A typical SCC House Church gathering lasts for one hour, and starts with around 25 minutes of fellowship time (sometimes with food!) when we simply "catch up" with each other, share prayer requests, take time to pray for any needs that people express, and share anything that's been especially meaningful to us in our times reading the Bible.
That fellowship time is then followed by a 20-30 minute interactive sermon time by Pastor Matt, after which we close our time together by celebrating Communion and sharing any important announcements.
We currently have House Churches that meet on Sundays at 9:30am, 11:15am and 7:30pm in a variety of locations.
