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


March 1, 2015 - Second Sunday in Lent. Remember the promises you made as a kid and sealing them with crossing your heart or shaking a hand? God does that kind of thing too. These promises are called covenants and he Bible is filled with them. God's word on it should be enough without any of the antics, but God knows the symbolic gestures are helpful for us. That's what he did with Abraham, his friend, when he promised that he would make him a great nation. Read Genesis 17:1-7 and 15-16 to get the picture. Then we will gather at the Lord's Table to celebrate what Jesus calls a new covenant. We hope you will join us.



What's happening at Seaview?


Game night, February 27 at 7:00. Join us in our Fellowship Hall for an evening of fun. Friendly competition can release some of that pent up energy from winter cabin fever. Bring some of your favorite table games and a snack to share if you like. Or just bring yourself.


Celebrate Christ in the Passover
with us on Maundy Thursday, April 2. A traditional Passover meal will be served in our Fellowship Hall while we move through the meal instituted by our Hebrew spiritual ancestors in Egypt as they readied to be delivered from the slavery of Pharaoh. As followers of Jesus, we see this as a foreshadowing of the deliverance Jesus brings to his broken world.


Wednesday evenings are a time for a fellowship meal at 6:00 in our social hall. Just bring a delicious dish to put on the serving table. It is amazing how the Lord provides as we open our hearts to share. Then meet us in the Chapel for worship and study at 7:00.


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.



Bible Study on Monday afternoons at 1:00 is an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the Book of James 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.


Seaview is glad to offer DivorceCare, a ministry to those who are navigating the stormy waters of broken marriages. On Tuesdays, from 7:00 to 9:00, this compassionate care is led by Karen and Ned Flexer. You can feel free to join in at any week.

Seaview's mission is for all of us to extravagantly bless people with the love of God so we grow together to follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly.
