Please feel welcome, as we count it a privilege to worship the Lord with you.

“What a joy it has been for me and my wife Joyce to minister and worship with the wonderful church family at Beachside. You would be hard-pressed to find a friendlier, warmer, more loving fellowship of believers than you’ll find here. Please accept my personal invitation to join us in worship any and every opportunity you have. I promise you will feel welcome!”
