Christmas at Shores 2019
Christmas at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church is a special time of worship as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in so many ways. Check out all that's happening this year during the month of December. Mark your calendar and invite a friend or family to join us.
Dec 1 • Arrival
Advent, a word derived from Latin meaning coming, is a season of expectant waiting and preparation leading up to Christmas. In Arrival and through the songs of Christmas praise, Dr. Ron Jones celebrates the birth of Jesus and reminds us of the time centuries ago when God’s people were filled with expectation for the arrival of Messiah. Ron also shows us how to wait for God’s perfect timing plus live with longing in our hearts for Jesus’s Second Advent.
Through December 31
Will you prayerfully accept the Christmas Tithe Challenge by giving a tithe (10 percent) of your monthly income in December to support the ministries of Atlantic Shores Baptist Church? Our goal during this special season of giving (through December 31) is 100 percent participation by everyone who considers Atlantic Shores his or her church home. Make your gift now

Clean Water for Guatemala
Each coffee tumbler you buy at the Connect Cafe not only comes with a free cup of coffee in 2020, but goes to support our new village in Guatemala. One of the easiest ways we will help at first is through providing water filtration systems. A portion of each tumbler purchase will go toward purchasing these systems that we will take to Guatemala in July.
