We understand it’s a challenge to visit a new church. We hope this information will help ease the challenge. Our aim is that you leave feeling loved and as though you have found a new “home.”
Don’t put off a visit until you think it’s the perfect time or you are exactly where you want to be in life. Just come as you are. We do!
You will be warmly greeted at the door and given a bulletin, which will have all the information you need for the morning. A few steps in, you will be embraced by simple beauty, as you find yourself at eye level with the forest, through large glass windows that dominate the room.
Our worship style is "casual traditional”. Services last about an hour. We sing, we pray together and for each other, we read and teach from the bible, we share Christ’s peace with each other. There are times of quiet and often there is laughter. No drums or flashing lights. You can choose to how you want to participate. We won’t single you out or ask you to stand up in front of everyone.
Clothes. Seriously, just wear clothes. If you wear a nice dress, or a suit and tie, you won't be alone. If you wear jeans and a t-shirt, you'll fit right in. Simply come as you are.
Before service, at 9 am, there is a class for adults, to dig into scripture or a topic in a conversational style. You can join the choir as they practice music for the morning service.
After the service, you can enjoy coffee, tea, goodies and conversation, or you can slip out the back.
Children aretreasured here and welcome in the worship service, noise, wiggles and all. We have “worship bags’ that contain quiet activities for families to enjoy. We have a Children’s room full of books and toys and love. It is at the back of the worship space, has a huge glass window and the sound is piped in, so families can use this space and still participate in worship.
As guests, we don’t expect your money. The financial support of the congregation is the responsibility of the people who are committed to the vision and mission of Chapel by the Sea. You are welcome to “add your 2 cents” but it is not expected. You won’t get “roped” into anything.
We are one block east of Highway 101, nestled in the treetops above the Hilltop Café.

We are at the end of the block.

This long running program provides laundry services and warm clothing to those in need. An average of 30 persons a month were served in 2019.

This is a new program for our congregation that we started in 2019. The aim is to educate the community about human trafficking in general, and on the coast specifically. A workshop was held at CBTS in June with over 90 people in attendance. Volunteers also lend support during court cases.
The educational functions of the church continue with good results, many have expressed their great satisfaction with the program that they have adopted. The congregation is one which is eager to continue to learn and grow in understanding of the Bible. Overall the teaching functions of the pastors in the worship services are very strong and admirable and form a strong center.
Overall, the spiritual life of the church is being consistently enhanced by the new learning and reviews.
Meets every Sunday morning before worship at 9 am. The Sunday morning bible class currently is studying the book of Ephesians.
Meets every Wednesday morning at 9:30 to study at Sambos Restaurant. The focus of the study is to focus on the passage(s) to be used in the coming Sunday’s worship service and is led by the pastor or others who will be preaching the upcoming Sunday.
Bible Study Fellowship continued to meet every other Thursday and has been studying of the Book of John.
This is a time of soup, bread and fellowship at the pastor’s home or another location ass announced. This group meets every Thursday evening from 5:30 to 7:30. The group averages about 12 and there is always room for more. Every week the makeup of the group changes, some come once, and some attend every week. We begin with a meal and then during the meal we usually will have a question that we all talk about. We close the evening with group singing and then prayer. This is a good way to get to know others in the congregation

Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship.

Chapel by the Sea actively supports Young Life Lincoln City hosting them in our space, providing meals and snacks, funds and through participation on the Board of Directors.
