Welcome to Seaview!




________________________________________________________________________________________

When you come to Seaview, expect a warm welcome. This church cares about people. We seek to be authentic followers of Jesus who declared that God's house is a place of prayer for all people. So no matter what your background, there is a place here for you.

Our blended worship style, Sundays at 11:00, seeks to draw from the wealt
h of traditional as well as new and creative approaches. You will find us singing with a praise team that includes many instruments. as well as traditional hymns accompanied by organ. Our organist, Paula Dollarhide, is classically trained and plays both piano and organ with a heart lifted up in joyful worship. Our pastor, Dr. Frank Reeder, preaches biblical sermons that usually follow the revised common lectionary. That means what he is preaching is often the same biblical texts being read and taught in many churches throughout the world on any given Sunday. Children are given a special place in our worship with a dedicated children's time, after which they are invited to Children's Church. A nursery is offered for those under 5 years of age.

We hope you will come and joyfully join your voice with ours as we praise our loving and coming Lord.


Sundays at Seaview


October 19, 2014 - Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost. Does anybody enjoy paying taxes? How about the benefits that come from paying them? Taxes are an ancient way of providing service in the community. Jesus had something to say about them. This coming Sunday, Rev. Joe Mathis will have something to say about them, too, as he preaches: "The Joy of Paying Taxes" from Matthew 22:15-22. We hope you will join us.


What's happening at Seaview?


We are happy to welcome Dan Dutton, our new pastoral intern. Dan is a middler student at Palmer Theological Seminary and is married to Betsy Dutton, a well seasoned elementary school teacher. They are both particularly gifted in their work with children. Dan will be getting pastoral experience as he shadows Pastor Frank, reflects in weekly seminary classes, and leads in many ways among us. Dan and Betsy are residents in nearby Dennisville.


A Celebration of Faith comes to Seaview on October 24-26. This is a retreat that comes to us. Sponsored by Seaview in partnership with Lay Witness Ministries, it will bring people from around the area to come and share their stories of faith with us. Plan now to be with us for each session beginning with Friday night dinner.


The Koinonia Class invites all adults to be a part a group that enjoys lively and thought provoking discussion. The class meets on Sundays at 9:45 in the Parlor. On September 7, we resume a study by Philip Yancey entitled Prayer: Does it make any difference?  Karen Flexer is our teacher and guide. Feel free to come and be a part of the class at anytime.



Wednesday evenings begin again on September 10. There will be no dinners provided at first but we hope to restart them when our cook returns from vacation and medical leave. Meet us in the Chapel for worship and study at 7:00.


Bible Study on Monday afternoons at 1:00 is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the Book of Hebrews while growing in your relationships with those who study with you. Class meets in the Church Parlor (Room 114).


A Youth Class taught by Linda Wheatley is focusing on the Book of Proverbs on Sunday morning at 9:45 in Room 112. Anybody from 6th thru 12th grades is welcome. Here's where it gets interesting. Linda is asking our adults at Seaview to think about those proverbs that are especially meaningful to them. If any adult has an insight or experience relating to a proverb, they are invited to talk that over with Linda or Pastor for inclusion in the class. This will resume on September 7.


Seaview is glad to offer DivorceCare, a ministry to those who are navigating the stormy waters of broken marriages.
