We are a seaside fellowship of people from many different walks of life who are discovering life’s meaning through a transforming relationship with Jesus. As members of God’s family, we have become His disciples—learning to live like Jesus and receiving power from His Spirit—so we can joyfully love those around us and do our Father’s will on earth as it is in heaven. If you are looking for a warm and friendly church home, we invite you to:

Celebrating 70 years of The Advance: God’s love at work when disaster strikes
After a natural disaster, people are at their most vulnerable, and the people of God are most responsive. In the past 70 years, The Advance has sent hundreds of teams into disaster zones to meet the needs of the suffering in the name of Christ.
One of the great things about a channel like The Advance is its ability to pool the resources of caring, generous people to respond to a crisis. Another great thing about The Advance is its ability to resource those who plan ahead to mitigate the dangers of a natural disaster.
Disaster Response, International (Advance #982450) implements disaster-risk reduction initiatives that will help reduce the mortality rate, damage to infrastructure, and disruption of essential services in communities vulnerable to natural hazards.
In July 2016, UMCOR approved a grant for $177,752 to fund a disaster-risk reduction program in the Philippines, which is susceptible to earthquakes, typhoons, volcanic eruptions and cyclones. You can read more about this initiative here.
The work of Disaster Response, International is just one example of the forward-thinking initiatives that United Methodists have been supporting through The Advance since 1948. That’s seven decades of God’s love at work!

People smile when they welcome you. You’re invited to light a candle at the prayer table or fill out a prayer card to place in the offering plates. We also provide a children’s service (during the 9:00 am Early Service) and a nursery during Sunday morning services. Our Celebration Choir, Worship Teams, Hand Bell Choirs and special musical guests bless us with contemporary and traditional Christian music. We believe that if the people grow together, the Church grows together.
At 10:00 am each Sunday, we enjoy community and fellowship (and coffee/danish) between services. So stay a little later or come a little earlier and get to know the Oceanview family. Join us as we follow Jesus together. Get plugged into Oceanview.
“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:16-17)
