Hurricane Precautions

We’re Floridians. You know the drill. It’s hurricane season. As of this morning, the path of Hurricane Isaias continues to hug the coast of Florida, bringing the potential for tropical-storm-force winds to our area later Sunday afternoon. We are not canceling services, but encourage you to check the weather before venturing out. Of course, we are grateful to have a livestream option as well.
Join us on campus or tune in, Sunday, 10am, on our Youtube Channel or Facebook Page

Join Us For Worship!

In the presence of Jesus, all of the labels that separate us dissolve into a tapestry of human experiences, woven together by divine purpose. We look forward to the declaration of Scripture that, one day, we will all stand in his presence, in joyous recognition that he has overcome all sin, misguided notions, open hostility, tragedies, and disasters.  There’s something powerful that happens when we lift our voices in unison, as an expression of worship and devotion to “the Risen King.”

If you’ve joined us in-person you should have received a “hope journal” on the way in.
If you’re watching from home we’d like you to find a notebook to use as a “hope journal” over the next few weeks.
What is a “hope journal”? In 1Peter 3:15, Peter instructs his readers to be prepared to give an answer for the reason of our hope within. Preacher Mike Frost, comments on this passage, saying that we ought to live “questionable lives”–lives that cause people to ask questions. But when they do ask questions, how do we respond? What is the reason for our hope?
In the New Testament, hope most often Read more…

Congregational Meeting

2020 has been a year of challenges (insert favorite 2020 meme here). Yet, we can testify to God’s goodness and provision at every turn. In fact, while giving has consistently been below-budget since the beginning of the COVID shutdown, we’ve been careful about spending, and we’re pleased to share that we’ve barely had to tap into any reserves up to this point.
However, there is a significant financial need on the horizon. You may remember the hailstorm that came through our area this past June. It did some damage to cars and roofs in our surrounding neighborhoods. After assessing the damage, Read more…

August Nights

With prayerful consideration, we have decided to cancel our August Nights gatherings. While many of us were looking forward to this special time together, given the current circumstances around coronavirus and out of respect for each family’s individual choices, we feel it best to postpone this community event indefinitely. We are adjusting our approach and will communicate updates as we develop new plans for connection with our church family.

For now, we encourage you to reach out to someone from Safeharbor that you haven’t talked to in a while. Go ahead. Call them today! And don’t forget about about the Beach Baptisms & Picnic on August 23rd.

Beyond Sunday with Pastor Dan

Pastor Dan always has more to say! Join him on our Facebook page, Tuesday mornings at 9am for biblical background notes, stories, deeper dives, word studies, practical application, mental shifts, clarifications, and anything else that didn’t make the cut.

Guess The #SocksOfSafeharbor

Can you guess which dads are wearing these socks?


We think that the fathers who attend Safeharbor are pretty great dads! None of them are perfect, but all of them have made a choice to humbly participate in a church community as followers of Jesus, and we think that makes them pretty good role-models. The Dads at Safeharbor “knock our socks off.”

Re-Opening Changes

The Safeharbor Campus will open, Sunday, May 24th, 10am, with limited capacity.
Our facilities have been thoroughly sanitized on a weekly basis, and will be specially prepared for those in attendance this weekend. Stay up-to-date with our reopening plans at We could use a few extra hands to help sanitize our building after the service. If you’re interested in helping, let a greeter know.

Current Message Series

This Sunday, Pastor Dan continues our “Now What?” series, as we continue to explore the book of Acts and answer the question, “What does it mean to be the church?” This weekend we’ll take a look at the events from Acts 6:8:-9:21, where things begin to take a turn for the worse at the Church in Jerusalem. But, could it be possible, that the extreme pressure that these first believers felt, was actually used by God to spread the good news about Jesus all over the world?  If so, perhaps Jesus’ vision for the church looks more like a mobilized church on the go, than a retreat-center for believers.  As, we’ve seen these past 4 weeks, a gospel-centered community, requires a different kind of commitment than casual church.
