Blue Modern Merry Christmas Facebook Post-2_edited.jpg

Feeling a bit blue this Christmas? You're not alone.

The holiday season can be a challenging time, especially when we're missing friends and loved ones. At Oceanside First Presbyterian Church and Preschool, we understand that sometimes the festive cheer can emphasize the ache in our hearts. That's why we invite you to join us for the Blue Christmas Luncheon – a heartfelt gathering where you're not just understood, but truly embraced.

BLue Christmas

The Blue Christmas Luncheon - Finding Comfort in Community

What to Expect:

  • Community Support: Find solace in the company of others who understand that missing loved ones is a natural part of the holiday season.

Needing to start your story of faith?

You might be wondering, what it's really like at Oceanside First Presbyterian Church and Preschool? Simply stated, we are all about Jesus. 

Here you won’t be met with, guilt, or condemnation and we don’t care how you’re dressed, what tattoos you have or don't have or even who or what you voted for.

Our church is made up of imperfect people (just like you) with every kind of story imaginable who are all loved by God. We think you just might fit in pretty well.

When you arrive you will receive a warm greeting at our Sanctuary doors. There is a modern atmosphere with both contemporary and traditional worship music and relevant Bible-based teaching that seriously adds to your life...

Plus Pastor Mike is pretty funny too .

Feel free to come as you are, dressed up or casual, suit or shorts, the only thing that matters is that you come and enjoy what Sunday was designed for. That is why we created Plan Your Visit.

When you sign up for a Plan Your Visit we'll:

✅ Meet you and greet you by name at the front door
✅ Help you get your kids into worship or our children's ministry ... choose your own adventure.
✅ Save you a prime seat, not too close and not too far away.
✅ We will even sit with you if you like.

We want to make your first time with us as smooth as possible and actually have a few moments to get to know you and your family.

It's a crazy idea right?  You are worth getting to know well.

Will you come and hang out with us this Sunday?

"We just want to meet you and help you grow in your faith"


Pastor Mike and his wife Aimee

Hi, my name is Mike
I believe that you are created to pursue an authentic relationship with God and it is in that relationship with God that your life can take on real purpose and significance.

Only with God can you fulfill the purpose he designed you for. You are here to help demonstrate God's love to our very broken world.

I am one of those guys who is crazy enough to think that we can, with God's help, change the world as we live into God's purpose of demonstrating his unconditional love to the world.

You can find your purpose, you can grow your faith, you can find your tribe.
