Welcome To Oceanview

We are working on a plan to return to in-person gatherings but for now there are no in-person public worship gatherings on the property of Oceanview United Methodist Church. We are examining the survey results, looking at surrounding churches’ plans and waiting for Palm Beach County to re-open to Phase 2. In the meantime, please know that the church is not limited to the buildings or even this website. WE ARE HERE FOR EACH OTHER. 


Join us for Home Worship by clicking here: HOME WORSHIP or on the menu tab at the top of the page. HOME WORSHIP will be available at least until a vaccine/cure is available. It's our hope and prayer that you will feel closer to God who is near even though we are apart for a time. Remember, staying home is a form of loving your neighbor! May God Bless and Keep you. 


Please stay home as much as possible and stay in touch!

Resources on Race for the People of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church

From The Bishop's Blog [June 5]


To the Laity and Clergy of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church,


The recent killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor have elicited lament and anger, protest and soul-searching, sadness and grief, all of it justifiable. It is also important that we place our responses in a more extended recent historical context. In the language of my colleague, Bishop Gregory Palmer, it is essential that we move beyond crisis and catharsis. We cannot be disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world apart from a deeper engagement with the present moment.


The Florida Conference is on a journey in response to racism which is extended over decades. The Florida Conference continues to reckon with our own institutional racism. Much needed reflection and action awaits our engagement.


We wanted you to know of these resources. Some are examples of sermons in local churches, some public statements after acts of violence. Some represent the work of groups, others are the reflections of individuals. Some of the documents record annual conference actions related to Black Lives Matter and Mass Incarceration. Some of the resources point to the work of our connectional church.


We have included a brief collection of books, which can help a disciple of Jesus Christ to become more acquainted with the history and implications of racism. While this is not a comprehensive account of how the church has spoken and is speaking, it is a beginning.

Sunday Morning Worship

We are a seaside community of people discovering life’s meaning through a transforming relationship with Jesus. 


As members of God’s family, we strive to live like Jesus. All people are important to God, therefore all people are important to us. 


SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP:

9:00 am – Modern Worship with Oceanview Worship Band

11:00 am – Traditional Worship with Pipe Organ and Choir


At 10:00 am, we enjoy coffee and danish between services. So stay a little later or come a little earlier and get to know the Oceanview family. 


We also provide a Children's Service during 9:00 am Modern Worship and a Nursery during both Sunday morning worship times.


What to expect when you come: People smile when they welcome you. You’re invited to light a candle at the prayer table or fill out a prayer card to place in the offering plates. Our Celebration Choir, Oceanview Worship Band, Hand Bell Choir and special musical guests bless us with modern and traditional Christian music. We believe that if people grow together, the Church grows together.
