Becoming a member of a church is an important part of the Christian life. So many have a distaste for organized religion, while others might have a fear of commitment and yet being a member of the body of Christ is one of the most rewarding joys that a Christian can experience. On Sunday mornings this summer, we will talk about church membership in a straightforward manner and see why it is important to commit to the local body of Christ. Join us each week at 10am to learn about the Embassy Life that the Church provides for Christ’s ambassadors.
We meet at Yorktown Beach picnic area at 6:30 p.m. for baptism. At 5:30 p.m., you may bring your own dinner and spend time with others in our church family. We will eat and fellowship together and then celebrate as new believers are baptized. Please note, there will be no children’s ministries or child care on this date.
Please join us July 27-31, 6:30-9:00 p.m. for Vacation Bible School. At EVEREST VBS, kids will embark on the coolest adventure this summer!

Armed Forces Week
Saturday, May 16 is Armed Forces Day, which makes May 10-16 Armed Forces Week. As a way for Seaford to say “Thank You” to our military, we offer a FREE dinner to our church active duty military and their families on Wednesday night during that week. So on Wednesday, May 13, come by the military table that will be set up in the Family Life Center and receive tickets for your free dinner. Please do the regular reservations as you would any other time via the signup sheets or bulletin perforated registrations on Sunday, May 10. The deadline is Monday Noon. As always, thank you for your service!
As we have our long Memorial Day weekend and perhaps have our cookouts with friends, let us remember what this special day means…a day of somber, yet grateful thoughts for those who have given their lives for their country during active duty military service. Let us remember as well the families and friends that are still with us who carry their grief for their missed loved ones. May God comfort you, and may we be ever mindful of the sacrifice your loved one made.

Many thanks to everyone who helped with our Easter Baskets this year; we were able to deliver 40 baskets!
Our men will be gathering in force again this year to sing a special song for our Lord and in honor of our ladies. Also, in addition to that, this year we will have an all men’s worship team on Mother’s Day. You won’t want to miss it! Men, we will be singing “In Christ Alone”. There are two opportunities to practice – Tuesday, May 4 at Men’s Breakfast (6 am) and Sunday, May 10, right before the service at 9:45 am. Let’s make it an all out effort!
Seven Words of Worship
Our Wednesday increase classes are up and running again. Seven Words of Worship is a class designed to dig deep into what the Bible says about worship and develop a more Biblical understanding of what worship truly is. Each week we will dig into the Word of God and have plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
Worship Ministry Cookout
The annual worship ministry cookout will be here before you know it. It will be June 13 at 5 p.m. This is for all worship ministry members in all facets – band, choir, worship team, audio team, media team – and their families. Registrations sheets will be available soon. If you haven’t yet joined the worship ministry, now is the time! Join us for rehearsals and join us for the cookout.
In modern day church life, technology is a necessity. Our Audio and Media Ministry Teams play a vital role in our
worship services here at Seaford. Do you enjoy working with computers or other technology? Please consider being part of our Audio or Media Team. You can talk to Pastor Eric, Mark Robinson (Audio Team Leader), or Kerry Gough (Media Team Leader).
