GATHERING INFORMATION

Ocean City Church is a growing wave of people who recognize there is more to life than the 80+ years we spend on this planet. Our joy is found in a perfect God who rescues imperfect people for a purpose greater than anything we can create for ourselves.
Our mission is simple. We exist to invite anyone and everyone into the unending ocean of grace that comes through Jesus alone.

PARKING

Parking is available in the lot directly in front of our building. Please enter the lot from 6th Avenue North, where you'll be assisted by our Parking Team. If our lot is full, our Parking Team can help direct you to a nearby lot. There is additional public parking at the end of 6th Avenue North, at the end of 7th Avenue North, and there is a large public lot on 1st Street between 4th and 5th Avenues North.

If you are a Jacksonville Beach resident, you can always park for free at any public lot by registering your car with the city, and we encourage you to do so to free up other spaces for our non-resident friends!

If parking in a paid public lot during the months of March-October in Jacksonville Beach, download the ParkMobile app to make paying to park that much easier!
