Christ Centered, Mission Focused, Caring in Spirit



VBS July 20-24

Some animals are just weird. Just look at this guy to the left. Yet God created him and has purpose for him. Sometimes our kids feel weird, too. But God has a unique love for each one of them. That's what we want to teach at VBS this year. Vacation Bible School at Seaview is from July 20-24. Starting with a light supper for the whole family at 5:45, the fun really gets rolling at 6:30.

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


July 20, 2014 - Sixth Sunday after Pentecost. Every involved parent knows the pain of birthing and raising a child. Sometimes all we can manage is a groan. When we hear of wildfires that have ripped through whole neighborhoods leaving only charred remains, we groan. The murder of a family that is hopeful one day and decimated the next produces a deep groan. This week's message is "While Creation Groans" and points to how God is active in redeeming the brokenness of his creation. Read Romans 8:12-25. We hope you will join us.


What's happening at Seaview?


A Week of Service as we host the Sandy Relief Mission Team comes to Seaview the week of August 9-16. There are still many homes to reclaim. We will be hosting by providing living space, meals and hot showers after a long day of work. The team members will come from all over the US as they respond to the call through American Baptist Volunteer Ministries.


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. This Sunday we will begin a new 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 have concluded until fall. We studied the third of the formatio series by James Bryan Smith, The Good and Beautiful Community. When we begin again in September, it will be with a dinner at 6:00 PM (for $6.00) and then continues in the Chapel with 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 doing a survey of Biblical themes every 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 look through the line-up of Biblical passages. If any adult has an insight or experience relating to that piece of the Bible, they are invited to talk that over with Linda or Pastor for inclusion on that Sunday in the class. This class will be on summer break after the July 27 class. It will resume on September 7.


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.
