You’ve attended Starting Point, what’s next? The answer … Foundations. This one-time class which is offered monthly will equip you with the basic tools necessary to live the Christian life.
Here at Ocean View, we believe that the church is not a building, but a community of people striving to make a difference in their community for Christ.
Part of Being a church is putting the right people in the right places. Did you know it takes hundreds of people to lead our church each week? That’s why we ask everyone to find a place in our church to serve at least once a week.

PARENT-CHILD DEDICATION SERVICE: Sunday, October 25th @ 3pm
FAQ: Why can’t I register children over age three?
Every parent is called it to be the primary spiritual leader for his/her children. This service recognizes that calling and begins a process to help parents do that. However, children over three can misinterpret that as a personal salvation experience. We never want to create an opportunity to confuse a child. For this reason, our age limit is two years of age and under.
I have a unique family situation (divorced/single/parents not married). Can I still participate?
Parents are called to be the spiritual leaders of the home for their kids. While making a commitment to raise your child to know Jesus is important, we believe it starts with a personal decision to follow Him and model that in your relationships as well. We want to help guide you in that. To discuss your unique situation, please contact us.
I’ve participated in a previous Parent/Child Dedication. Do I still need to attend the orientation meeting?
Yes! More than anything, this is about relationships. Come and meet others who are walking alongside you in the same phase of life and bring your experience to encourage new parents!
