Welcome to Bluewater In The Keys

Bluewater is a local community of faith that exists in two groups gathering in the Upper Keys. Our more church-feeling expression is on Sunday mornings in Islamorada.
Sunday evenings, a teaching/discussion-based gathering meets in Key Largo.
While each gathering is very different from the other, we have one focus – to help people discover who God designed them to be before their birth and to live that out as a fully-loving human being. It’s your time.
We are so happy that you have visited Bluewater online.
Now, let us extend our invitation to experience a weekend
gathering that is designed to inspire, inform and innovate our life
as we become all that God has made us to be.

Team Blue
Find yourself here, having an impact, living in significance and making a difference in our Upper Key Community day by day and week by week.

Being Jesus’

Presence, Personality & Power in the Upper Keys 

How would you feel if you knew your life was making a difference?
What would it mean if you knew you had what it takes to lift another human?
When was the last time you felt ‘up to the task’ of helping someone out?
Bluewater is committed to helping people who want to help…to be like Jesus.
We want to know how to live, notice, empathize and make a difference.
Bluewater is NOT ‘Church Usual’ but something of  new take on church.
Bluewater is for people who want to be FULLY HUMAN in the way of God.
Bluewater is NOT for people who want to know principles and always be right.
Bluewater is PURPOSEFULLY FOLLOWING JESUS, not just checking the church box.
Discover on your level…and decide if Bluewater will serve your needs.
Level One – Discovery.  Attend a weekly Bluewater gathering,
study the lessons and information, decide it’s worth, apply to life.
Level Two – Engagement. Create a spiritual partnership for growth.
Level Three – Mission. Engage your time and resources in mission.
Level Four – Extension. Become a leader, spiritual helper and live on mission.

 Live Your Faith. Get Connected!

We love serving in our community & in our church. Our belief is that a deep relationship with God calls us to serve. Our ministries are designed for your growth and safety as you become a difference maker.

 Generosity – the quality of being kind, understanding, and not selfish : the quality of being generous; especially : willingness to give money and other valuable things to others.
We give as an act of worship. We ask big, pray big, give big and expect big things to come out of people that live and operate with a God-first priority.  Jesus is both provider and Lord over our financial life but gives us the management.
We give financially to support the local expression of our church and to launch new Kingdom opportunities for the Gospel to reach our neighbors, our nation and to ends of the earth with compassion, care, relief and loving acts of kindness.
Will you choose to partner with this mission on a consistent basis to fund strong Christian service and presence in the beautiful Florida Keys and beyond?
