The key to experience the fullness of a church family is to connect to a smaller group.


At Church by the Sea, we know how important good relationships are and we believe God designed you for community.

So if you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus, intentional relationships with people who have the same goal will help!


Relationships are so vital... God uses them to encourage us, strengthen us, mature us, and to serve others through us!


To help you connect with other people at Church by the Sea, we offer Bible study groups that meet throughout the week. Our groups focus on two things: God’s Word & Godly Friendships!


In these groups you will discover: 

  • more about the Bible

  • the changes that God wants to develop in your life

  • quality friendships with people who have the same goals

Our vision for small groups comes from Acts 2:40-47.  We call it the 6 S’s.

1.  STUDY the Bible

2.  SEEK in prayer

3.  SERVE our community

4.  SUPPORT each other

5.  SHARE life together

6.  SEARCH for others who need to follow Jesus



Our Membership Class is designed for people who have a new relationship with Jesus, are returning to church after being away for a while, are new to the area, or are curious about Church by the Sea.

You will learn our core beliefs, be confident about having a personal relationship with God, discover how to make "church" no longer be a place to attend but a family to belong to!

We schedule our Membership Class about every 2 months.  It is a lunch immediately after the Sunday morning worship services  and lasts approximately 75 minutes.
