  • Welcome to Ocean View

    We invite you to come worship with us.

    After a careful assessment of the icy conditions in our church parking lot, and noting that the weather will continue to be below freezing, we have decided to cancel all worship services on Saturday night, January 6th and Sunday, January 7th. While the main roads have improved, parking lots, driveways and side roads continue to be very dangerous. Of utmost importance to us is your safety. We will be announcing the cancellation of all worship services on TV, our website, phone system, Facebook pages and Daily News. Please assist us in getting the word out to all those who might not see our announcements. Thank you…God Bless and let’s meet together next weekend. 

    Please note: A large portion of the Keziah Street parking lot has been cordoned off, and the main sanctuary doors cannot be used at this time. Thank you.

    Whether you’re planning a trip to the beach, looking for a new church home, or already a part of our church community, we’re glad you stopped by. Ocean View offers a multitude of services as well as opportunities to serve and grow in Our Lord… we hope you’ll find what you’re looking for in these pages. If you haven’t visited with us before, please send us an e-mail or contact us at (910)278-5973 and let us know how we may be of service to you! Come and visit with us at 8400 E. Oak Island Drive, Oak Island, NC
