Sunshine, warm temperatures, beach umbrellas, and surfing. Summer is an exciting time of the year for the whole family to grow in your relationship with God. Check out all that's happening this summer at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church.
This summer, Pastor Ron completes his series Route 66: The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible with Road Trip 8: The General Epistles and Revelation. The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, but it can also be intimidating to read because it contains more than 600,000 words divided into 66 distinct books written by 40 authors in three languages over 1,600 years. But how does it all fit together? In Route 66, Dr. Ron Jones takes us on the ultimate road trip through the Bible, pointing us to Jesus from Genesis to Revelation.
At Atlantic Shores Baptist Church, baptism is a celebration and illustration of the life of Christ in us. It’s also the first step of obedience a new believer takes in his or her relationship with Jesus. We practice believer’s baptism by immersion, following Jesus’s example as a way of going public with our faith (Matthew 3:13-17). Our next beach baptism happens on Sunday, June 12 at 4pm at Sandbridge Beach (Little Island Park). If you would like to be baptized, please contact us.
Join Pastor Ron and the Atlantic Shores team for Vision Night on Sunday, June 26 at 6pm. Celebrate all that God has done for, in, and through us this last year, and look forward to the upcoming ministry year.

Vacation Bible School happens June 20-24, from 9:00am to 12:00pm, for all grade schoolers who have completed K-5th grade. Our theme is Spark Studios: Created in Christ. Designed for God's Purpose.
