What you can expect on a Sunday:
Whether it's your first time to a church or you've attended elsewhere before it's always good to know what to expect when you come for the first time.
Our Sunday service begins at 9:30am with praise & worship which is led by one of our bands. During worship there is a an opportunity to for the giving of the tithes & offering, but please don't feel pressured to give anything as this is primarily for our regular members. After Worship there is a teaching given by an Oceanside pastor or visiting speaker. At the end of the service there's usually a time for more worship and prayer, but every week is a little different.
