Route 66: The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible
The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, but it can also be intimidating to read because it contains more than 600,000 words divided into 66 distinct books written by 40 authors in three languages over 1600 years. But how does it all fit together? In Route 66, Dr. Ron Jones takes us on the ultimate road trip through the Bible, pointing us to Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. Road Trip 5 focuses on the Minor Prophets, from Hosea to Malachi
Wednesday Nights (6:30pm to 7:45pm) returns at Atlantic Shores this fall with a full line up of on campus discipleship studies for kids, students, and adults. Check out all of the studies and register here
Our mission at Atlantic Shores Baptist Church is to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ who go and make disciples. We take this Great Commission mission (Matthew 28:19-20) seriously and make disciples intentionally. Check out the fall discipleship studies where we help you become a fully devoted follower of Jesus. Life Groups is another environment where we make disciples.

Middle and high school age students gather every Sunday night during the school year from 6pm to 8pm in the Life Center. Enjoy fun, games, worship, and a sermon-based (Route 66) lesson from our Student Pastor, Travis Bryant. Then, we break into age and gender-specific groups for discussion and prayer. This is a great time of discipleship for grades 6-12. Students also gather for an apologetics-based study on Wednesday Nights from 6:30 to 7:45pm.
